    Campus interview followed by a relatively relaxed 2 day interview process. I was asked to give a research talk followed by 1 HR and 2 technical interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PPG in October 2016.

    Interview

    applied online, contacted by recruiter, call with recruiter, then supposed to be a call with territory manager. Territory manager (TM) reached out to schedule via email with less than 24 hour notice for when he would be available. I already was booked and offered up additional days and times as the TM had stated that if I was unavailable they could make something work. I never heard back. When I tried to follow up with the TM, I did not get a reply. When I tried to follow up with recruiter, I was asked if I reached out to TM again and I responded "no." A few hours later I received a rejection email. I did not feel that this was the culture of the company after being told I had so much talent and they were very interested in me.
