Information Systems Intern Interview

Information Systems Intern
Toledo, OH

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Owens Corning in November 2011.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a college recruiter who found me through my university's database for business students, and he asked for my resume and then later contacted me to see if I wanted an interview. The phone interview itself was 2:1 and the people who interviewed me were alums at the university I attend. It was predominately behavioral questions, like I think at least 7 which was tough to get through. But the interviewers were easy to talk to.

Engineering Interview

Engineering
Granville, OH

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Owens Corning in April 2011.

Interview Details – Initially I received a phone call for an online application and during it we went over everything in my resume where I detailed my past experiences. I was then invited for an on-site interview. At the on-site interview I was given a great tour of the site. A panel type interview was given in which typical interview questions were given. During the whole experience I was presented a very honest view of the culture at OC. Everyone is very honest about what to expect there and there is no sugar-coating anything; what you see is what you get, nothing more nothing less.
