    Operations Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Blacksburg, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Corning (Blacksburg, VA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    When applying you start with a 4 hour test. They test you in areas from math, problem solving, and English. Most don’t get past this part. If you pass then you take a personality quiz which has silly nonsensical questions. Most who take this part fail as well. Union has stated “out of 100 people, 50 will pass the test and only 10 of those 50 will pass their personality test”.

    After you are accepted from application and test screening you are subjected to hair drug test, physical screening (including weigh lifting, push testing, and stair climbing/endurance). For the actual interview: Brought into a room with 2 Operations Associates. They ask you to tell them about your life up until now. That’s the only question. You are expected to talk for 10-20 minutes. They take notes, then you go to the next room. Same thing happens with 2 other OAs. Then the 4 come together and talk about you and decide after you leave.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Corning (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It lasted an entire day and I interviewed like 8 different people the whole day. Before they flew me in, 4 people had called me for the interview. The questions were not hard and they were pretty straight forward. They flew me in and different managers from different departments ask you questions. Be ready to ask them some questions because they sometimes don't have questions prepared beforehand. They replied within a week after the personal interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Corning (New York, NY) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I thought the company was great for what they did and everything. I submitted the application in January and got a preliminary phone screening around the first week of February. Later in February I was asked to schedule another phone interview, and by the time I was scheduled to interview they had already extended the offer to another candidate. So overall, I would say that their process is cancerous and unprofessional.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Poland, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Corning (Poland, WI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview performed in a very friendly atmosphere. There were 3 interviewers, two from HR and one from department that was interested in hiring an intern. The entire process had one stage and the interview lasted approximately 35 minutes. Most of the quesions were general, not related to the specific knowledge. I do recommend this employer as an excellent place for doing an intership.
