    Packer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Carleton, MI

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Guardian Industries (Carleton, MI) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The overall process took about two months, but I was kept in the loop during the whole process. The first interview consisted of my knowledge of the company, and then a small tour of one of the lines. After that came basic interview questions, strengths, weaknesses, if I was willing to work long hours. The first interview lasted roughly 45 minutes from start to finish.

    I got the second call from Guardian about 2 weeks after my first interview, this one consisted of a one on one interview with a member of HR. I was asked more specific questions, such as how I'd handle specific situations related to saftey, and harassment. At the end I was given a writen, and verbal offer for the position, pending a drug test and background check.

    Controls Technician Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Guardian Industries (Carleton, MI) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Was mostly a pleasant process. Gave me a good tour of the plant, explained duties pretty well. Left me with other techs at one point who seemed to question my experience and whether or not I was willing to get dirty since my resume stressed office type work, I guess. Seemed like nice enough bunch though.

    Interview Questions

    • Was given a test of PLC ladder logic, this is to be expected and made me realize I needed to bone up on this since it had been a while. Also questioned several times about whether the unusual shift work would be an issue.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Guardian Industries (Carleton, MI) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Hiring process was smooth. All technical people accept one took the individual interviews.
    I was contacted by an outside recruiter who explained the hiring process in detail.
    Guardian always make sure the candidate can perform without minimum or no training, can work long hours with pressure.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Guardian Industries (Carleton, MI) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Initial communications were a telephone pre-screen reviewing my application and resume' submitted. Interview process was day long event, meeting w/several managers and personnel involved in the hiring process at different points in the day. Also it included a tour of plant with walk/talk involved. Notes were taken by about half of the people conducting the interview, so that the notes could be compared at a later time.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any extremely difficult or unexpected questions, Guardian is looking less for technical knowledge and more for a cultural fit.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiate on both wages and vacation time. (of course, that was prior to Koch Industries buying into Guardian).
