Account Manager Interview

Account Manager

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Michelin North America in June 2010.

Interview Details – You go through several interviews with Michelin personnel. It's not very difficult just very long and drawn out. The interview process becomes a little boring because every ask the same questions. Michelin also does a phone interview that last for about 30 mins than they invite you in for a face to face group interview. Once you complete the interview process they make you a offer then you begin a 10 week training with the first two days visiting with a rep in the field.

Interview Question – Nothing in detail, the process was not very challenging just long.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Yes, but the offer was a lot less than I expected.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Michelin North America in March 2014.

First you start with a phone interview and if that goes well they will invite you to the HQ in greenville. Once there you will meet some of the other people applying for the position that are interviewing the same day. You will have three different interviews all back to back then a lunch with the interviewers and HR.
Straight forward interviews no curve balls. Do a little research on the company and be confident if your abilities, its for a sale position after all.

They do background checks and hair drug tests.

Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Michelin North America.

Interview Details – There is a phone interview and on-site interview. Someone would call you beforehand to set up an appointment for the phone interview, so you will have plenty of time to prepare for the phone interview. It was a 30 minute phone interview that pretty much going over your resume. Then, you would have to do an online assessment. Then, the same interviewer would call and set you up for an onsite interview (typically at the HQ or the R&D center for an engineering position-both are in Greenville, SC). They would pay for all your expenses to get there. The onsite interview would take all morning, going through 4 interviewers (most likely, there would be 3 other people there too and you would rotate with the 4 interviewers). Each of them would interview you in different aspect, like technical skills, personality, education. It is not particularly hard as long as you know what you saying and research the company well enough before the interview.

Interview Question – Describe a time you had a failure and what you learn from it.   Answer Question
