    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Bridgestone Americas (Nashville, TN) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied on the Bridgestone website, heard back from HR rep a couple of days after the job posting closed. Had an initial interview with HR rep, she basically just gave me an overview of the position and wanted to make sure I was still interested. We then set up a phone interview with the Engineering manager of the team. He was very nice, and very straightforward about the process and position. Asked questions about my resume and experience. After this interview I heard from HR rep about 1.5 weeks to set up final on-site interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Met with some engineers from the team, and they asked behavioral questions. It seemed that they were more interested in how I work and my personality than my experiences. They wanted to see if I'd fit with the team.   Answer Question

    Area Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buffalo, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bridgestone Americas (Buffalo, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    From the beginning of the process, they were so disorganized that I almost withdrew my application. But I decided to give the benefit of the doubt and stick it out. The recruiter set up my initial interview for the next day after our first contact and then disappeared for 8 days without a trace. He reappeared with several apologies saying he was busy with careeer fairs. After my initial interview, we agreed on a date and time for the second interview, which was to be virtual and he asked that I please dress in business attire, which I did. Four minutes before the second interview, he emailed me and said he was sorry, but they had to reschedule. When I did get to the second interview, it was a panel interview but none of the interviewers appeared on video, so it became an audio only interview. One of the interviewers asked how I discovered the position and he was surprised when I said I applied online. He said the recruiter told them he found me himself. The interview actually seemed to go very well. They were laughing and joking with me and finished saying they were definitely passing me to the next two interviews with divisional vp's. These again were set up as virtual interviews as well, and I dressed for each but neither of the interviewers appeared on video. So, to this point, I was 4 interviews deep with 6 people and there was no visual contact whatsoever. The recruiter kept telling me about the positive feedback he got and that there was only one more step after the 4th interview. Two days later he emailed me and said he apologizes but after careful deliberation they chose another candidate who more closely fit what they were looking for.
