Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PPG (Pittsburgh, PA) in November 2016.

Interview

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. The questions were primarily behavioral in all interviews. The HR quizzed me on my resume and technical interviewers asked questions such as 'describe a situation when...'. I haven't heard back of the outcome in 1 week so far.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at PPG (Maynard, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Met with local site for approximately half a day. Returned for second local interview. Went to headquarters for interview with Corporate. The local site manager was very positive and enthusiastic. Upon interviewing with Corporate, I found that there was a disconnect between them and the local site management. Following the interview with Corporate, the job description was changed and I was rejected for the position.
