    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Goodyear.

    Interview

    Talked to recruiters at a campus career fair, got an interview the next day. Interviewed with a process engineer and another long-time engineer. Both were very nice and personable, the interview didn't feel intimidating. They started by asking about my resume and experience and then moved to a more behavioral interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard behavioral questions: Tell us about a time when you solved a problem in a unique way, etc.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Had another offer, wasn't very attracted to Akron

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Goodyear.

    Interview

    Apply the position on campus. Take the interview on Friday and get the rejection email on Sunday. The interview is held in University's career center.

    Interview Questions

    • Almost all the behavior questions are related to "teamwork". Keep asking me what should I do if teammates don't make contributions. I thought they should ask questions related to other aspects such as leadership, ability of dealing with emergency, etc. I'm quite surprised that several behavior questions in a row are all related to teamwork.   Answer Question

    New Ventures Advisor Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Goodyear in October 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a Senior Recruiter, at The RightThing (an ADP company) for a position with Goodyear Tire and Rubber company. Since the opportunity seemed interesting, I agreed to explore it further and sent him my resume. The recruiter even asked me to fill out the online application and this is where the unprofessional experience began.

    The way the online application system was set up caused me to attempt to complete the application at least 3 times. Apparently Goodyear or The RightThing do not have the internal staff to test that their system works.

    When I pointed out the glitch, to the recruiter in our phone conversation, his response to me was - "how convenient". This should have been a flag to me to stop the process at this point.

    However, this recruiter is persistent and calls me a couple of times, without warning, and asks that I try to fill the extremely long application again and we do this 2 or 3 times before they figure out that their system has a problem. Again this should have prompted me to stop the process immediately.

    After the phone screen, I was informed by the recruiter that he will be forwarding my resume to the hiring manager and that he will let me know the next step.

    Anyway- After I have jumped through the hoops, to apply for an opportunity that seemed interesting, i get an automated email saying that they are pursuing other candidates. I am ok with not being the right candidate for the job but what I am not OK with is the manner in which the whole process was conducted.

    In summary: The recruiter (and by relation The RightThing and Goodyear) did not leave a positive impression in my mind about how they conduct their hiring process. I felt like I was used to fill a certain quota of applicants for a position to help justify the work done by the recruiter. This to me is a learning experience that might be valuable to others applying for opportunities or might be contacted for opportunities to ensure that your time is not wasted and to appropriately pick on the signals that serve as warnings before proceeding.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions asked by the recruiter were standard and the length of the phone screen should have been a warning. The entire process was very unprofessional.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Interview went really well but later found out that want was promised in the interview was misleading just to get you in the door.

    Interview Questions

    • None but they should ask you are you ready to work here 6 days a week and have no life outside of here. Oh and we are open 7 days a week and don't answer phone on your days off cause they will call you in   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Don't do it

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goodyear.

    Interview

    Interview was 45 minutes long. Basic Behavioral Questions. Had an online webcam interview with 3 people. The interview was very mundane, nothing too exciting. I wish they didn't have a webcam interview as it is very awkward and uncomfortable, especially since you can always see yourself during the interview.
