    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cooper Industries (Shelby, OH) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Short, quick, and to the point. There were two people interviewing me, the head of HR and the head of Accounting. Both were asking simple and expected questions, but wanted very detailed answers. Everyone was extremely polite and helpful. I turned down the job for personal reasons.

    DRP Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Peachtree City, GA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cooper Industries (Peachtree City, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview with an HR rep who seemed a bit aloof. I was then brought in for a face to face interview session with HR, a director and hiring manager. It was a little awkward for various reasons including the fact it was casual Friday, everyone was dressed down and hiring manager was preoccupied with her nails after the first 10 minutes.

    It took about 3 weeks for them to circle back and send me an automated notice that I was not selected for the role.
