    Operations Finance Interview

    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.

    Operations Leadership Development Program Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Avery Dennison (Mentor, OH).

    Interview

    This is a horrible interview process and you need to stay away. First interview was on campus, not a problem. Second interview I was brought on scene for 2.5 days for final interviews. Positives were the networking and plant tours. Negatives, where do I begin? 3 HOUR group case study cross-functional discussion under the microscope of higher management, following with a 15 minute presentation the next day. No finite roles and objectives. This was just a group of people trying to out-shine one another shouting ideas hoping to catch a higher-ups eye. Three one-on-one interviews and when you think this exhausting process is done, it is time for team building. If you enjoy being blindfolded with pointless team building objectives that deem no relevance to the position, you are in luck. I honestly felt like I was on recess for these two hours. Enjoy the rope, shapes and micro-managing. Also, the talent pool was way too large for the limited amount of positions available. For instance, I was among 25 candidates and they were taking less than 5. There are way better jobs and companies out there people. I was shocked I didnt get an offer, and was so upset I wasted my time because I considered this company among my lower interests originally. Luckily my dream company came knocking a month later. This isnt Google, you make adhesives. What a waste of company resources. If you originally have doubt that this company is beneath you, stick with your gut and don't waste your time. PS, I heard they pay all majors equally among their LDP program. I imagine that frustrates employees who graduated with an average major salary much higher than a low one.

    Leadership Development Program Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Avery Dennison (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    I spoke to the recruiters at a campus fair, was called for a 30 minutes behavioral interview the very next day. I got a call after that and got invited to a 2 days assessment center interviews. During the two days, there are senior personnel's constantly taking notes about your performance, to get a 360 degree perspective. But the sad art is, after getting a reject, the recruiter politely refused to give any feedback. For an organization that talks about personal development, this attitude was totally unacceptable.

    Behavioral interview first. Then if you are selected, you move on to the Assessment Center which is a couple days of group activities designed to test how you interact in teams and your leadership skills.
