    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goodyear (Akron, OH) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview followed by an on-site where you had to meet with six different people seperatley. It took several hours which seemed a bit much for just an intern position. They also took very long to set up interview times after the initial call and also failed to respond to emails. It was way to in depth for a internship position and was also very un-organized. I was disappointed in my experience because I believed Goodyear to be a great company.

    Interview

    I was invited to an on-campus interview after speaking with recruiters at a career fair at my University.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Goodyear (Akron, OH).

    Interview

    Be prepared for a long process. Hiring is a lower priority for top leaders so no matter what promises are made on speed, it could be weeks between steps or feedback. Goodyear knows it's culture and will highlight the opportunities and challenges which are not to be discounted. The interview will have some focus on experience but the bigger leadership concern is fit with the organization.

    Marketing Manager/North America Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Goodyear (Akron, OH).

    Interview

    Contacted by an outside recruiting firm followed by a phone interview. A month later I was contacted by Goodyear HR for a video interview based on behavioral and culture fit questions.

    Another month later I was contacted by HR again to ask if I was still interested but in the course of our conversation I learned that the scope and responsibilities of the original position changed. I was concerned but still continued with the interview process.

    2-3 weeks later I was brought in for a half day interview with multiple team members. Standard interview questions but focused heavily on culture and team fit. Based on past conversations I believe the department experienced some significant turn over and a very specific "fit" was needed. Great conversations with HR and hiring manager but other team members made no effort to hide the fact that they were missable and disgruntled. They were clear that only a specific person fits with the Goodyear culture but they couldn't provide examples or characteristics. After my interview i leveraged my network for advice and past employees spoke of morale issues and others had similar interview experiences.

    Received an email 2 weeks later stating that I was being turned down for the role.
