Human Resources are very nice and professional in the interview process, making me very comfortable and them be very informative with questions I had of their company. I'm all, on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being the best of course, I'd give them that 10. Thanks for inviting me to your company and interview.

    Color Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PPG (Pittsburgh, PA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The initial contacts by HR /emails were consistent . After the interview, I heard nothing for weeks, and emails went ignored ( a simple reply would have been appropriate) and it felt like more of a interview "process" that they were required to do . I was told to cut short part of my presentation short because they "had heard it a million times" and had a lot of other emails and interviews to complete.
    Staff was friendly and laid back, so I was surprised at the lack of consequent follow up, complete disregard for any requested feedback from my interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at PPG.

    Interview

    In-person interviews were offered on campus for interested candidates. Interviewer was a great guy and we ended up talking 20 minutes past our time just about life. Experienced issues with follow up interview due to an apparent change in regional management, which was frustrating but understandable. Eventually, was given a phone interview with new guy and he was very professional and energetic.
