    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toledo, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pilkington North America (Toledo, OH).

    Interview

    I met with HR rep and lead engineering supervisor and both were very friendly. They asked for me to elaborate on my previous experience based on my resume and throughout the time that I was speaking, the HR rep kept eyeing the supervisor with a disapproving look. Typical interview questions about why I am and want to be an engineer and where do I see myself in 10+ years. They were disappointed in the fact that I wanted to move up within the company as I built my technical background to take on more responsibilities and leadership. Essentially, they were looking for someone who was okay with staying in a single position/company for 30+ years (although both of them had been with the company less than 10 years and had moved through several companies throughout their career).

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pilkington North America (Portland, OR) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Was brought in fairly quickly after submitting resume. Was told that it was okay that I didn't have any experience in the industry as no one else who was interviewing did. Then was told that people from outside of the industry usually "don't make it" and the interviewer literally kept me for over an hour asking me the dumbest questions that he obviously had not prepared for.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pilkington North America (Northwood, OH) in October 2015.

    Interview

    They asked a series of behavioral interview questions. Very easy going and laid back interview process. Very polite and nice people and they take several notes on what you are saying. You have to think on your toes about some past experiences. The interview took about an hour and they were very informative about the company and the position you are applying for.

    Internal Auditor-Entry Level Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pilkington North America (Toledo, OH) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview the second week of July, got an onsite interview a week later. The interview was with the Human Resources Group Leader, Americas Audit Manager, Sr. Manager Global Trade Regulations. They asked me behavioral questions for 45 mins. I didn’t get any actual audit questions. The interview went great, and I asked some good questions. 2weeks later, the HR Manager sent me an email that they are pursuing a candidate with Audit experience. Mind you, they were not focused on audit during the interview. Two days ago, I found a job posting for the same position on Monster. Whatever happened, I think what they did was very unprofessional and inconsiderate. Whatever information they get from background check or credit check, they are supposed to inform the candidate what the actual reason is for not pursuing. They obviously lied to me, and it’s very disrespectful. I put sincere effort in so many hours preparing for the interviews.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Pilkington North America.

    Interview

    Very thorough and could take time. I believe it took about 2 weeks from contact to getting an offer. If they like you they will pass you to the next stage. Here is how it went down for me. Got contacted by a recruiter. After going over the job description and my skills we determined that there is a match. My resume was passed to HR person that conducted a phone interview which led to a group interview. After successful group interview I was asked to take self assessment and then invited back to interview with the director. Shortly after I recieved an offer that I accepted.
