    Hot End Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Geneva, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Guardian Industries (Geneva, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Talked to 2 people for about 15 minutes, they barely talked to me...but they knew who they wanted for the job already. We were not told of the decision quickly but we already knew who got the job and they did get it. It was unfair...management always does this, they made the decison before the interviews went on.

    Production Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Millbury, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Guardian Industries (Millbury, OH) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Called by HR for phone interview. I assume I passed, but communication with HR lady was hit or miss. Dealing with her was very difficult. She forgot what she told me in regards to when to call her back, she never called me back when promised. I did the follow up or it wouldn't have been done. I interviewed with other Supervisors, Production Manager (boss), HR and Plant Manager in plant. Thought it went well with Supervisors, they seemed to like working for Production Manager and company. Didn't get a good feeling from Plant Manager. He seemed shifty and aloof, but I thought I passed with him. Production Manager was more of a conversation than interview, but he seemed knowledgable in glass and plastics. I thought I would have been called back, but after not hearing anything for 10 days, I called back. HR said they decided on different person.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Guardian Industries (Jersey City, NJ) in December 2015.

    Interview

    It was nice and effective.first Hr interview I pass it then technical interview he ask me all about my previous work experience as I working in the same company overseas in Saudi Arabia. He asked me very detailed quastions to check my experience and I answer them all. As I was new to united state and not much familler with American accent there was one quastion I asked him to repeat it 3 or 4 times when he ask the same quastion in a different way I replay him right. I think this was the reason why he did not take me due to comminication because during the interview he was telling me that this we are looking for.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Guardian Industries (Taylor, MI) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very basic and friendly interview process. Maybe 30 minutes total. Went through resume, asked some very basic questions and that was about it. No silly questions interview questions, like "how many balloons would it take to fill this room?". Very nice people, that had good intentions. Unfortunately, the upper management is really lacking at this facility, so most people that try to improve things have their hands tied.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Guardian Industries.

    Interview

    It was really simple, they asked me about the simple control system questions. Face to face was mostly salary negotiation. Had a lunch with future colleagues, they were very nice and welcoming. They asked me about my experience on control system design, about they understood my depth about control system they kinda stop talking about technical questions. ;-P

    Interview Questions

    • The negotiation was difficult, manager straight offered me an exact number and said he wont be able to offer any more. As I badly needed a job then so I had to accept that.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They are a HUGE company they got tons of money, but doesnt want to pay much. Bonus is simply a joke. So negotiate as much as possible from the beginning coz you can forget about the raise for atleast next 3 to 4 years.

    Production Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Guardian Industries.

    Interview

    First communication was to set up a pre-screening phone interview. Recruiter was polite and explained the position very well. I was asked to give a run-down about my experiences and we went into behavioral response questions. Unfortunately, I have not finished my degree but I have life experience through the military comparable to the position applied for. However, it seemed that experience was dismissed after further discussion as it was not a manufacturing environment.
