    Process Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Garland, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Plastipak Holdings (Garland, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    2 members of HR in a small office having more of a conversation, rather than a hard hitting interview. Actually a very different "get to know you" time more so than a "where do you see yourself in 5 years". I liked it very much, more companies need to take this approach rather than the "grill you" approach.

    Interview Questions

    • Mechanical experience, former jobs and duties. Most questions were asked by myself rather than the HR member. I found this to be beneficial in making me comfortable on my first day,   Answer Question

    Production Technician Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Plastipak Holdings.

    Interview

    Took a test which included all mechanical and hydraulic aptitude tests then interviewed with several different people. Was told someone would be contacting me to no avail. Supposedly it's about who you know rather than aptitude and credentials. Possibly a blessing in disguise...I only hear negative things about working there from others.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time that you had a disagreement and how it was resolved   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Plastipak Holdings in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the facility manager and shift supervisor. Well, both of those men stated that they had numerous positions and jobs within the company. I immediately got the impression that the company was trying to squeeze a dime out of a penny (overworking and under compensating it's employees). I was told that I would have to apply through a temp agency (this is after they called ME to come in for an interview). I was told it pays $12 per hour, you work 12 hour shifts. One week you will work 3 days, next week you will work 4 days. Every 6 months you switch to the opposite shift (nights to days, days to nights). Also, as a material handler, you will be doing shipping, receiving, inventory, put away, and driving a forklift.

    Reasons for Declining

    Once again, I feel this company over works and under compensates it's employees.
