    Operations Finance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oxford, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avery Dennison (Oxford, OH) in September 2015.

    Interview

    On campus interview, I interviewed with who would end up being my manager. Very conversational, I did a lot of talking. They were very interested in whether I would be a good fit for the culture more than the technical experience I had in Finance at the time (as I didn't have any). Lots of behavioral based questions but nothing too tricky or intimidating.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Avery Dennison.

    Interview

    Google hangout with three persons. The interviewers were pretty laid back. Described about the company first, and then started the interview questions with a brief introduction about yourself. Not too much technical. Great experience.

    CPD Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Avery Dennison (Boston, MA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Over the phone casual interview describing your skill set and going over the job more in depth. I talked with a HR rep and the hiring manager. They both told me the interview went well and they wanted to bring me in to meet other team members THEN over a week of radio silence. They provided zero follow up, I called, emailed, and nothing. Then after 2 weeks received the automated email that I would not be proceeding to additional interviews. This is fine but if you're in HR and scared to give people news that they will not be going forward, please get a new job. Its completely unprofessional to treat anyone that way.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Avery Dennison in April 2017.

    Interview

    Began with a phone screen with the internal recruiter. She was very quick on communication throughout the process. Next step was a phone screen with the hiring manager. Next step was a nice email saying they weren't moving on with me. Compared to most companies, AD did a nice job of communicating in a timely manner. Wish it would have worked out differently but positive experience overall.

    Lean Champion Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Avery Dennison (Cleveland, OH) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I had two recruiters at two different points in time reach out to me regarding a Regional Lean Champion role that AD had open. They saw my profile on LinkedIn and saw that my background is actually a near perfect fit for the role. I had a phone discussion with the first recruiter and, after a brief discussion on my background, she felt I was a good fit and was going to recommend me to the hiring manager. That was the last I hear from her and repeated messages to get status went unanswered. Then about one month later, I was contacted again for the same role, but by a different recruiter. I told the second recruiter about my experience with the first recruiter and that I was still interested in the opportunity. Once again, silence. I've never worked there and have had no dealings with them in the past in any way, shape, or form., and I don't know anyone that works there. So as far as I know, they do not know me. I don't understand why I would be contacted twice about the same role, only to be thrown in the trash with the other loser candidates, except one likely reason...........age! So for those of you over 45, don't bother applying at Avery Dennison.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Avery Dennison in March 2017.

    Interview

    Even though I didn't get an offer, I had a very positive experience with Avery Dennison. I met a Director at my campus career fair and discussed my career goals and past internships; from what he was saying they were looking for, I was convinced I wouldn't be an ideal candidate for this particular program. However, a week or so later I was contacted for a phone interview and afterward asked to attend a 3 day interview event in Cleveland. I was also asked to speak to another Director who oversaw the divison I would eventually want to get into (one that wasn't directly related to the LDP-Ops program.

    Once in Cleveland, we had a small meet and greet with other candidtes, and got to learn more about the program. The next day we toured some facilities and worked on a case-study with about 5 other candidates (during which you were observed), then ended the day with a larger mixer that included all the interviewers. The third day we presented our case study, participated in some group activities and had a series of 3 interviews.

    My advice would be to show your personality, attempt to be a leader in all group activities without being overbearing or bossy, show off your listening skills during the case study and ALWAYS focus on showing you can be a member of a team. Also try to talk to as many of the assessors as possible--I focused on the assessors that had positions related to what I wanted to do, but all of them are assessing everyone at the very end so even if you have a strong interview, other people have to want you as well. Also know that they bring in A LOT of candidates and a very small percentage actually get chosen.
