I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PPG (Pittsburgh, PA) in September 2014.
One on one interview. Mostly questions about leadership and management style. A lot of behavioral questions. The interview felt more like a conversation than an interview as the interviewer was engaged and contributed.

The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PPG in January 2013.
1 phone interview. It was behavioral. They ask normal questions. I met the recruiter at a career fair and about 2 months later was contacted about the opportunity. Interviewed the next day, then received a call 2 weeks later offering me the position.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PPG (Pittsburgh, PA) in February 2012.
The interview was arranged via the career management center at my business school. They have two rounds. The first round is on campus and conducted by someone with HR. The second round is conducted at their offices and is conducted by a senior person in the relevant department. I decided not to pursue the position further following the first interview, in favor of pursuing another opportunity. The person from HR was very nice, genuinely so, and allowed the interview to proceed pretty much free-form, that is, based on I said to a question or what I asked. She had some behavioral types of question (name a time when ___), which she even preceded by letting me know that what was coming up was a behavioral question. I don't know what working at the company would be like, but I am always pleasantly surprised to meet someone from HR (from any company) who isn't phony or comes across like an idiot. This interviewer was the utter opposite.
