Interview

The interview process is simple and pretty quick, they require a hair follicle drug screen which is a little different... But no complaints otherwise.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

No negotiation, but the company is very willing to negotiate salary and vacation to acquire talent.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PPG (Pittsburgh, PA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I met with hiring manager and then with eight others, including his boss and his boss' VP. Half in Pittsburgh and the rest in Louisville, KY. Interviews each lasted about 1 hour and varied by person in terms of style and questions asked. Each person represented a different area of responsibility within the business unit. Everyone was gracious and very professional. Overall the process was extremely thourough in terms of providing me a fairly broad understanding of the position and the associated responsibilities. It was clear that within PPG there is a desire to build a "bench" of high-potential middle managers that are promotable, and that there is a bias in favor of outside candidates for these types of roles.

    Reasons for Declining

    Pay was not commensurate with anticipated compensation, roughly $30K less than what a key competitor pays for comparable position. (Very likely reason they are not able to attract/retain high-potential candidates at the middle management level.)
