    Engineer Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Corning in August 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted online applications. After 3 weeks I got HR contact asking for general questions. After that its another 2 weeks for a phone screen with hire manager.
    However the hiring manager was not interested in any conversation through the process: there was no question asked on my resume nor my motivations so interview last about 10 mins.

     I feel it's a waste of time for both ends and manager just not professional enough to conduct an proper interview

    Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hickory, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Corning (Hickory, NC).

    Interview

    Involved panel team, many detailed questions.
    Strung along for OVER 3 MONTHS with multiple phone screens and on site interviews lasting an entire day, then abruptly dropped with zero communication/feedback.
    After all their fluffy webpage dissertations about inclusion, diversity, etc, not even the common decency of a status report or thank you for the quarter year and days invested. No basic human respect of a 30 second email back. What a grand wast of time. Good to see the true colors of this team BEFORE accepting a position.

    Process Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Painted Post, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Corning (Painted Post, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I finished an on-site interview early June at Painted Post. Before that there were two phone interviews, one from a recruiter and the other one from the research group manager. I submitted my resume through a referral. The whole on-site interview start with a one-hour technical presentation about my research, followed up by 10 one-on-one interviews. The interviewers include several members from the research group, and several managers from other research groups. One director and one HR manager are also included. The interview took all day.
    During the one-on-one interviews, they asked me some follow-up questions and some behavior questions. They also gave me time to ask them questions. From my side, I think most of the interviews went quite well. However, after almost 6 weeks, I still got no response from the company. No rejection letter or offer letter.
