Anonymous Interview Candidate
New Orleans, LA

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at PPG in October 2009.

Interview Details – The interview went really well. I was excited about the prospects, and they said that I would hear back in less then a month. About 4 weeks later, I emailed them to ask how the process was going. I got no response from the interviewers (who told me to email any questions), and about another month later I received an email about how they weren't hiring at this time. Why would they interview me then??????

I applied through college or university and interviewed at PPG.

Interview Details – First a test with several people - IQ, logical, mathematical and capacity tests.
The best ones were chosen for an interview with an HR employee who asked questions about your background and what you're planning to do in your life.
Finally an interview with the production manager in the plant

Process Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at PPG.

Interview Details – I visited PPG's table at a college career fair, and gave the HR recruiter my resume. She called and set up an interview time on campus. It was a preliminary interview, and she was interviewing many students from a number of colleges. The next phase would have been to be flown to Pittsburgh for a tag-team interview.
