    Production Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ligonier, IN
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Guardian Industries (Ligonier, IN).

    Interview

    Long and somewhat unorganized. I interviewed with three managers on site and most of the questions were tied to lean manufacturing. The plant manager was the first on-site interview and I actually enjoyed talking with him. He took me for a short tour and covered some of their organizational goals. After my interview with the PM I interview with two other managers, one was quality and the other I am not sure. They were both very vague and I lost interest during this time.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult, but very vague questions. I would have expected more relevant questions pertaining to my skills and qualifications. Over the past three years I have received at least thirty calls, from different recruiters, about this same position. It appears Guardian is seeking a particular leadership trait that is difficult to find or the turn-over rate is astronomical. Thats just my opinion.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I received an offer for another interview. I didn't feel I would be a good fit for their culture and declined any additional interviews.

    Packer Interview

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Guardian Industries (De Witt, IA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Had a phone screen with HR and then a 1.5 hour phone interview with the hiring manager. 100% behavioral interview questions and explanation of prior work history. Long discussion on glass and thin films. Overall, the interview process was very professional.

    The only downside was waiting 2 months from start to finish for a decision.

    Controls Technician Interview

    Neutral Experience
    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 online. I interviewed at Guardian Industries.

    Interview

    The longest process ever...! I interviewed with at least 8 to 9 individuals. First was a call from the HR recruiter; then a call from the VP of HR; then a group interview; had lunch with the current HR (an Engineer) then fly to Michigan to meet other HR folks; met the In-coming VP of HR; she said we had similar ideas, principals and philosophies in HR. Then...sorry you are not good enough?

    Interview Questions

    • Duh! "TELL ME A LITTLE bit ABOUT YOURSELF!" Too many times. No hard questions; just basic behavioral stuff: Situation / Task / Action / Results.   2 Answers

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Guardian Industries in October 2013.

    Interview

    Straightforward process, just wanted to understand my background. I enjoyed speaking with two of the interviewers but had another who was abrasive. Hearing the experiences of the team is always positive, and better understanding their thoughts on company culture.
