    HR Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Blacksburg, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Federal-Mogul (Blacksburg, VA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I received an email to do a phone interview. After the phone interview was complete I was invited on site to their Virginia facility. During the first 15 minutes of my interview only one HR interviewer was present. During this time she talked about how ridiculous it is that 30% of her employees are on intermittent leave - just very unprofessional towards her employees. After about 15 minutes the HR manager came in. They talked to me about the schedule - how it's usually an "8am-5pm" but "3 days a week they had to come in at 6am and last night we had to come in at 11pm."

    Overall I got the feeling that these HR members did not respect their employees. About halfway through the interview I decided I was done with this company and I'm sure that showed through. I did complete the interview, but I would not work for them, nor would I recommend working for them. If a member from corporate reads this review, I strongly advise looking into their leadership team.

    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Federal-Mogul (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Phone Interview followed by in person interview by 4 people. The recruiter talked at length about the position and her personal feeling about the department. I was told it would be a few weeks before I heard anything positive or negative but in fact I heard nothing at all.
    No offer was extended but I don't think I would have taken the job if offered. At one point the hiring manager answered an email and replied to a text (right before her lunch). Clearly if this is how a candidate it treated, how is an employee treated?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Federal-Mogul (Detroit, MI) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Two stages of interviews. Very typical resume questions. Upset at the fact they never called to say that I either received or did not receive the job. Very easy interview though.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Federal-Mogul (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter interviewed on call it was slightly tough but the Hiring manager interview was easy. I got the call from the university job fair. The company is pretty good. Though once the interview has been completed the manager told me you are the perfect candidate for a job, later on, I didn't get it that job. So still confused what was the reason. I tried to ask them but they didn't reply.
