    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.

    EHS Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Joplin, MO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Owens Corning (Joplin, MO) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Despite my not being selected to proceed with more interviews, the talent acquisition recruiter was kind, professional and respectful throughout the process. Just a few hours after I applied for the position on their website, she contacted me by email to set up a phone interview with her.
    The interview went well enough for me to be asked to complete a HireVue web based interview. That was simply sitting in front of my webcam and providing answers to a few basic questions that were displayed on the screen.
    After about six weeks, I received an email stating that while I wouldn't be asked to proceed, they would like to keep my resume on file.
    Overall good experience with using their website to apply and check on status of my application. Prompt and courteous back and forth communication with HR during process. Two thumbs up for the company.

    R&D Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Owens Corning (Columbus, OH) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The typical process for a mid-level engineering job. The first phase was a phone screen with HR and the hiring manager. Should this go well, it was to be followed by an on-site interview. The interviewers were polite and asked the usual sort of questions but also provided detailed background on the activities at the site and the work processes of the company. Rather that the usual half hour, they allotted an hour so there was plenty of time for me to ask questions. Overall the interviewer were open an professional.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewers asked whether or not I would be satisfied in an individual contributor role, as the role i was interviewing for was IC, rather than a role that had direct reports as my previous role had.   Answer Question
    • The interviewers asked about if I would be satisfied with a slightly lower pay range than my previous role.   1 Answer
