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


    Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics had the quickest turn around time from an interview process I've ever experienced. From interview to hire was under a month unlike other companies who really draw the process out. The interview was pretty standard as far as questions went, they had you speak to multiple division managers so you could learn about all aspects of the company.

    Interview Questions

    • They showed me a defective part and asked me to speculate on how it happened and my thought process behind resolving the issue.   1 Answer
