I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mohawk Industries (Clifton, NJ) in September 2015.
Applied months ago and recently got a call from a DM. Interviewed the next day at a flooring store. When I got there the DM walked me around the store for at least 30 minutes explaining all the carpets they carried. After 5 minutes I lost interest. I figured we would sit down and discuss the role and my past history. The DM was a real nice guy but his interview was poor. We sat there for an hour and a half and I might have said 10 words. He kept going on and on . All over the place. Really didn't get a clear idea of the job. We finally got down to salary and he said we can offer you 50,000/yr. Right there I knew this wasn't for me. I just didn't feel right about the selling carpet thing. Kind of felt like a used car salesman.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Mohawk Industries in June 2015.
I was contacted by a recruiter asking me to apply for the position if I was interested. I then spoke with her on the phone. She said she was new to the position and it showed. I thought I did a good job explaining how my background fit the position description. She said she sent my information to the hiring manager. In addition, I did a skills test screening. About 2 days later, I received an email from the recruiter with a question that was written by the hiring manager asking about my background. I wrote a follow up, explaining how my background was almost exactly what the job description asked for. I never heard back or was asked anything further. The process seemed to be waste of time for all involved. I'm not sure why I was contacted if I wasn't going to even get a phone interview with the hiring manager. The recruiters clearly need to spend more time researching the position.

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mohawk Industries.
Attended a job fair at the facility and had an in-person interview with a supervisor. Took a drug test afterwards and did job shadowing for about 30min to see what it was like. Was offered about a week later, no negotiating pay.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mohawk Industries (Dallas, TX) in May 2015.
TL;DR: It's a long, slow process. The IS department requires that you interview with a wide range of folks in a series of interviews both up the chain and cross-teams. An up-front expectation was set that there would need to be 100% approval from all involved to be eligible for an offer. Fortunately, beyond the technical screen early on the rest are more conversational with a get-to-know-you flow. Unfortunately, as the interviewee you do end up telling the same stories and responses quite a few times. At least you have to opportunity to get good and the answers! The toughest call was with an upper-level decision maker. He got hung up on questions that didn't seem relevant to his position in the company and tried asking technical questions that were way below his pay grade.
- Non-technical........the usual stuff: Q: Tell me about your greatest success Q: Tell me about a failure Q: What makes you different Q: What are your top 3 strengths. ....and so on. Nothing that stood out as unusual. Answer Question

I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mohawk Industries in May 2015.
Took several interviews 1 hour each. Met at their office. Interviewer included an employee to ask questions. Low pressure meetings. The manager was a big cheerleader for the company. After being hired I learned that the big leader speech was just that...talk. The reality at Mohawk is very different from what I was told about the process, accounts, etc. basically management changes their minds constantly to what mood suits them. Nepotism runs high here.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mohawk Industries (Kennesaw, GA) in October 2014.
The interview process is very easy. Make sure you do your research about the company. Depending who you'll work under you'll meet with them first which will probably be the executive assistant . If the executive assistant is interested in you she'll bring in a collegeau of hers to continue asking you questions .
