    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Shaw Industries (Huntsville, AL).

    Interview

    Initial interview was with a recruiter, a screening. The next interview was a panel "Skype" type interview, but they used their own internal system. I met with three people, one of whom was an HR representative, though she was not identify as one at the time.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were situational and behavioral overall. One question that sticks out in mind was if I would commute or would I be willing to relocate for the position.   Answer Question
    • I was asked about one of my favorite books or a recently read books.   Answer Question
    • I was asked about my short-term and long-term goals. I had recently watched Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, so this was almost comical...I managed to keep a straight face however and give them a serious answer.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Shaw Industries (Dalton, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The job was already determined before I even walked in the door. I didn't have a chance. It was frustrating for me because we all knew before we even applied who was going to get the job, but they needed to interview us to meet their requirements.

    Interview

    Initial communication was easy and natural, very nice people. The interview was pretty intense, very pressuring questions and on the spot thinking. They were extremely nice and just wanted to see what kind of person I was but some of the questions got pretty personal.

    Residential Customer Service Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Shaw Industries.

    Interview

    Test with HR in Dalton first (DO NOT comment on the picture of her children on her desk), then interview with 5 managers in hiring site - either Plant 72 (Dalton) or Plant 62 (Cartersville). It's a little daunting to have 5 managers interviewing you at one time alternating who asks you questions. THere is one manager in particular who looks at you very strangely throughout the interviewing process.

    The facilities at Plant 72 vs. Plant 62 are very different. Plant 62 is a DUMP. And it's dirty. They've replaced some of the carpet tiles and repainted some of the walls however the doors are filthy (you don't even want to touch them) - especially to the dirty bathrooms. The restrooms are circa 1960 - very tacky. For goodness sakes, Shaw only sells flooring products - can't they USE them in their employee restrooms? Cheap, cheap, cheap. Indicative of how they don't care about their employees.
    They have mandatory United Ways where they expect you to give money out of your paycheck to help those less "fortunate". After taxes and healthy care payments, who has money to give to those less fortunate? When you give money, HR looks at your contribution card and sneers at you.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. They offer you a pay figure and tell you that is the best they can do.

    The hiring process for the chemical engineering co-op required two interviews. The first was with their HR director, the second with a chemical engineer I would be working with. Although I thought the interviews went well, I just wasn't what they were looking for.
