    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bridgestone Americas (Nashville, TN).

    Interview

    About 3-4 weeks after I applied online I received an email setting up a phone interview with HR. Had a standard phone interview (Salary, resume experiences, etc). A few weeks later had a virtual panel interview with the standard interview questions with 2 managers and a peer. A week later I had a phone interview with an Executive Director. About a week later I received the offer. Overall the process was very engaged and I never felt like I was in the dark, it really felt like they did everything in their power to ensure I would join the team.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bridgestone Americas (Nashville, TN) in September 2020.

    Interview

    Very awkward interview process. Initial HR screening interview had a warm and easy-going atmosphere, subsequent interview with department was icy.

    I was interviewed by two people who could not have made it more obvious that they did not want to be there. Felt a bit like I was being interviewed just to fill a quota or something of the sort. Most people consider me very personable but the people interviewing me did everything possible to not engage with me outside of standard questions. Hate to say it but I wonder if they already had an internal candidate picked out?

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions like "what skills do you have that make you a good fit?" or "how would you deal with multiple tasks with competing deadlines?".   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bridgestone Americas (Nashville, TN) in January 2020.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me late in December, I had a couple of screening questions with him. Prior to the holidays I got the first interview with the hiring supervisor (SVP of supply chain).
    Video call went well, they scheduled a new video call in the beginning of January.
    Mid-January I was asked to go to Nashville for an in person interview with 6 people. From 8:30 to 2:30pm. It went well and on the following week I did an assessment test on my personality/leadership and a few days after I had an interview with the psychologist.

    On the last week of January I received a call from the recruiter saying that I did really well and they would contact me shortly with a decision.

    I followed up after 1 week, no answer.
    On the second week of February I discovered that they interviewed someone that was listed on my resume as one of my references. the problem is that this was very unethical since they asked me specific questions about him during my interview.
    Many times I said that if there was any further questions I would be available to answer at any time. I wanted to make their process easier. They went completely dark on me for 2 more weeks (1 month total) with no feedback.

    By the end of February, I saw on Linkedin that the same position was posted again.
    When I asked about it, in the following day they closed the listing and replied saying that they made an offer to someone else.

    I accepted their decision with no problem, but then I asked for a feedback.
    They said that the person chosen had experience in Mexico and that was the decision factor.

    My point is, I was never asked during the entire process any specific questions about how to solve specific issues in Mexico (which by the way I have more than 13 years of experience). So how did they come with that conclusion?

    To be honest, if they treat people like that, it speaks volumes about their company culture, processes and leadership.
