    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at A. O. Smith (Milwaukee, WI) in July 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process is a three step process. The first time you are called for an interview after you submit an application, it is just to get to see if you meet all the requirements for the position. If you do, and they want to proceed with the interview process, they will schedule another interview in the same team and another interview with HR.

    Finance Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at A. O. Smith in October 2013.

    Interview

    Upon submitting a resume they are very efficient at getting back to you in order to set up a time to interview. The HR manager arranged for me to meet with the hiring manager in that department along with someone doing the same work as the open position. During the interview they focused mostly on my ability for the position and what my future plans were.

    Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ashland City, TN

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at A. O. Smith (Ashland City, TN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed on two different days (total of 10 different people) for a total of 12+ hours. Not intense, just a long second day when you talked to 6 people over an 8 hour period. Week after the interview, get an email stated they were impressed, very interested in me and they would make a decision within 8-10 days. Never heard back from them, emailed HR and still no reply.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you know about the company and why you want to work here? (seems like that was a standard question to ask since 7 people asked me that same question.)   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at A. O. Smith.

    Interview

    Received email from HR to setup a phone call, figured it was the initial step or pre-screening for consideration for the role. The phone screen was pretty average, a few questions about past work experience and interest in the role applied for. Was told that I'd receive an email if they'd like to move forward with the interview process.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at A. O. Smith (Antioch, TN).

    Interview

    HR phone interview, panel interview at office in TN. Met with three different people. The interviewers spoke more about themselves and their qualifications rather than trying to get to know candidate. I knew right away this was not a fit. No follow-up after interview.

    IT Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ashland City, TN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at A. O. Smith (Ashland City, TN) in February 2018.

    Interview

    The local recruiter contacted with A O Smith and scheduled all interviews. I didn't see this open position at official website. I had phone interview by IT manager. After 3 days, I was told that I will be interviewed onsite and asked me if I can accept 3 days onsite interview since interviewer will be available in 3 different days. Since I am local, I accepted. After one week, I was told that there is a panel interview with 4 persons including HR person and IT leaders. After 2 weeks, I met the person who interviewed me by phone in the office. I was told that one leader was absent due to family emergency. There is no HR showing up or calling in. The interview took 90 minutes. I got the feedback after 2 days and told me that they select another candidate. I haven't experienced onsite interview with one person only. It doesn't look serious or standard HR procedure for me.

    Human Resources Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at A. O. Smith (Ashland City, TN).

    Interview

    I was called by a talent acquisition employee, who proceeded to start the phone interview immediately, which I found off-putting. But the process moved quickly. I think they had interviewed a lot of people and were ready to find someone. I was asked to come in for an onsite interview pretty quickly. After that, I completed assessments, was asked to provide references, and talked with the top HR person over the course of the next week. I received an offer a week after my in person interview.
