Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at PPG.

Interview

Phone screen, 1:1 with hiring manager, panel interview, interview with location manager. This was a typical interview process for a technical role albeit lacking on the technical evaluation or testing aspect. Nothing surprising or original about the process.

Interview Questions

  • Typical interview questions such as, "identify a time you were challenged, how did you overcome the challenge?"   Answer Question

Negotiation

I was not able to negotiate and found out later that I nearly had the offer pulled for asking to do so.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PPG (Sylmar, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    For many positions, you are hired as a contractor anymore. And depending on the position, the contract length varies tremendously. You will possibly be interviewed twice. First time, with a group of 4-5 people. General skills, education, professional experiences will be assessed. The second interview will be more specific to job function - if you get the second, you get the job. The management is extremely fair and open minded, oriented to solutions and quality as well as safety.

    Negotiation

    Negotiation

    This was my first ever internship so I did no negotiating. I just took what they gave me, which was a very good deal.
