    Advanced Process Controls Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Corning (Corning, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    After a phone interview, they flew me out and I interviewed with several members of the team I would be working with. First I gave a presentation on a "technical topic of my choice" to the group, then had several one on one interviews. These interviews varied from newer hires to other managers whom I would potentially work with.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Corning (Corning, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First was a 30 minute phone interview with one of the recruiters from Oklahoma. The phone interview was very conversational and seemed easy to relate to the recruiter. We talked about the answers to the original application. Then I was offered an in-person interview with the hiring manager at Corning HQ. The interview was very relaxed despite the incredibly professional setting and was one-on-one. The in-person interview lasted just over an hour. Before leaving, I was given a Writing Test to complete in five days. I waited a week and found out they hired internally instead. The silver lining is that they wanted to keep me in-the-loop and ending up reaching out to me with another opening that the previous hiring manager put my name in for.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Corning (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by the HR for an initial discussion over phone. It was mainly about my interests and Resume and lasted for about 20 minutes. Three days later I got an E-mail to schedule a telephonic interview with the Hiring Manager. Two people interviewed me for about an hour. It dealt more deeply about my resume, my interests and how I would fit the position. There was some ended discussion about the position and possible things that can do. Overall the interview was easy and the questions were specific to the position I was applying to. Basic research based on the Job Description was enough to answer most of the questions

    Commercial Rotational Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hickory, NC

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Corning (Hickory, NC).

    Interview

    Corning went to my school's career fair. A week after speaking with them at the event, I got a call from a recruiter. The recruiter was from a third party recruitment agency and didn't seem to know a lot about the position at all. He asked basic behavioral questions. A little while later, I got a second phone interview with a member of Corning's HR department. I enjoyed speaking with her and was excited about the program after the conversation. After, I was brought onsite for an interview in Hickory, NC. The onsite interview was very boring. Most other companies would have me tour their facilities, or explain why the program was so great, or at least feed me lunch but Corning basically locked me in a conference room for 3 hours. People would walk in and take turns interviewing me and talk about things that weren't so great about the program. It was kind of surprising how unexcited people were. I went into the final interview excited about the rotational program and left the interview feeling like I would never, ever want to work there based on how unhappy some of the people interviewing me were.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Corning in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied early in October, was contacted about 2 weeks later to fill out a questionnaire and send an updated resume. One week later I was contacted for a phone interview with the project managers the following week. Interview was a little more casual than expected, went through my resume and explained some points, no really technical questions. Project managers were both very friendly and were more than happy to answer all of my questions. I asked a few questions and then they explained the intern program in depth, was told I would hear back within two weeks, was notified just over two weeks later they were pursuing another candidate.
