    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Novelis (Atlanta, GA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    There were three rounds of interviews. The first one, a phone screening, asking about what I expect to earn and what I previous earned as far as wage. They also asked very basic question. The second part of the process was with the head HR person. That interview was very straight forward and I was asked typical interview questions. The third round of interviews was a panel interview with the manager of the department as well as 3 other people from the department. This interview was more informal and they wanted to know more about me personally and see how I would fit in with the department.

    Negotiation

    There wasn't much of a negotiation. I researched what the average salary was for the position I was applying for as well as what other people's salary's were that were similar to my desired position. They asked me what I wanted to get paid and they responded by saying that I was spot on and I ended up accepting the offer.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Novelis.

    Interview

    I submitted an online application and a few days later had a call back for a phone screening. Shortly after that I was called for an in-person interview. The interview was about a half hour with a panel of three people, but it seemed they were looking for someone with different qualifications than what I had to offer. The whole process took about a month.

    Senior Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Novelis (Oswego, NY).

    Interview

    I was scheduled for a phone interview and the HR team did not contact me as planned. I waited for another half hour and still no contact. When I followed up with the recruiter who asked me to interview for the position he stated he was not surprised they did not contact me and this has happened before. Apparently they will be trying to schedule another appointment. Not a vary favorable view of the company at this point if they can't meet any commitments.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Novelis in April 2015.

    Interview

    Brief conversation about experience and some behavioral questions on the phone. Not a very long interview either. Probably because it was for an intern position. I had applied on the campus website early in the semester and received a call close to semester ending about this position.
