    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics.

    Interview Details

    Consisted on phone interviews at various levels of the organization within Human Reosurces, face to face interviews with various managers with the Operational function at the plant I was interviewing for. The time from interview to offer was a bit long, but understandable as there were multiple interviews at mulitple levels and they had to connect with each other. Very thorough and detailed information requested up front for background, education verifications which was refreshing. It good to know that a Company is doing its due dilengence up front.

    Production Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Clearwater, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clearwater, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is relatively comprehensive. Candidates interview with multiple managers from different departments. Director level management will interview candidates as well. The questions are straight forward and very direct. Different managers use different interviewing techniques with some using situational and other using direct questions about experience.
    Hiring is a bit of a process. Extensive background checks cause at least 2 week delays in start dates. All details of prior employment and education will be verified.

    Interview Questions
    • Expect questions on details of experiences. Expect questions about prior performance reviews. Expect answers to be picked apart to understand the extent of knowledge or experience.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiations were relatively easy. There was more flexibility on vacation time versus salary. Benefits are straight forward.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics.

    Interview Details

    I went through (3) prescreening interviews with the headhunter and a phone interview with the hiring manager prior to being brought on site for a panel interview with the hiring manager, hr manager, r&d manager and production manager. The site was old (1950s) and team brought little to make you want to work there.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aurora, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics.

    Interview Details

    I had an informal phone interview, followed by an in-person interview with my would be immediate supervisor and HR the next week. The phone interview discussed position specifics, my experience, and then because of the type of work this would entail, we discussed current social media trends and changes and how that could affect SGPPL. The in-person interview went over a lot of the same questions that we discussed in the phone interview and more detailed job specifics.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Garden Grove, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen with HR, One-on-one interview with the hiring manager, followup interview with a panel of people from marketing.

    I went through this process, they said they would get back to me in a few days, but they took a month to get back to me.

    When they did get back to me, the offer was too low. I was VERY disappointed that they didn't bring up their extremely limited salary range earlier. They knew my salary history and expectations. This and their unprofessional lack of followup made it a negative experience overall, I felt like they were wasting my time.

    Interview Questions
    • No hard interview questions. They didn't have any case questions, etc.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining
