    Finance/Accounting Leadership Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Owens Corning in April 2017.

    Interview

    Quick 30-minute phone interview before being passed on to another official at a later time. Overall easy and they asked a lot of basic behavioral questions. They were able to tell me where the job would be, yet not the exact roles that I would fill.

    Asst Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Annapolis, MD

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Owens Corning (Annapolis, MD) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview is in Capital Heights. They where running behind and doing multiple interviews. They will speak to you for about 30 mins trying to sell you how you are going to make your "pay check" and basically tell you its a door to door sales job.... noting to do with management.

    Interview Questions

    • Very little questions where asked. I was mostly being sold on why to work there. (Huge red flag)   1 Answer

    Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Owens Corning (Granville, OH) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Owens Corning put out a really good vibe during the interview process. While lengthy (mostly due to the holiday season), my first two interviews were over the phone (very convenient) and the third was on campus (multiple panel interviews). Unfortunately, I was not selected. I would have loved to accept an offer from them, but their reasoning was very legitimate... However, all was not lost... The hiring manager called me a week after the interview to go over exactly why I didn't receive it and actually offered advice on what jobs in the company to apply for. I don't think I've ever gotten that kind of feedback from an interviewer. Very professional. I will keep applying to OC in hopes of receiving a suitable offer.

    Supply Chain Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oshtemo, MI

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Owens Corning (Oshtemo, MI).

    Interview

    Phone interview asked STAR questions. Lasted about 25 minutes.

    As a senior in college looking for a full time position out of school. I did not get a second interview because I currently work part time at Lowes and they are a customer of Owens Corning. I understand that logic if I was in a management position but I work 20 hours a week to pay bills while in school. I find that incredibly unfair.

    R&D Engineer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Owens Corning (Toledo, OH) in July 2016.

    Interview

    It was a very disappointing experience. I applied online, contacted by a recruiter two weeks later for a phone interview. Then came the strange part: that recruiter never showed up. I had to call multiple times later that day for reschedule, but it just didn't work because we scheduled three times and the recruiter missed them all.

    In the last time, I called the manager and ask for help. The manager did help me connected with the recruiter and had a 25 min interview, went well, but that was it. No follow up (after I called), no respond to e-mail, even no reject letter. Such an unprofessional organization appeared to me and the fact that I wanted this position badly made it sting so much. Every time the interview was rescheduled, I spent more than 2 hrs preparing them. So what they did was very disrespectful to my time and effort.
