    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Plastipak Holdings (Medina, OH).

    Interview

    Some lady from Medina plant called me. I am not sure how she got my information. She was proactively recruiting me but then turned to say I had to answer a shlew load of questions on the phone. I "HAD" to answer all your questions because you are trying to recruit me? It sounded like she was reading from a script.... she invited me on site....I was curious- assumed there was someone there who could answer my questions....the recruiter lady did not....ended up I was in her office and she read questions from a script again...she never once looked at me.....she was texting on her phone while I answered one question....pretty rare to go to an interview and walking away hoping you do not hear from them.....she called again but I ignored the calls

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Plastipak Holdings (Farmington Hills, MI) in May 2012.

    Interview

    First interview was simple but took several hours due to two individuals being late. As in they left me in a conference room for over 90 minutes combined. Not a great experience. They ultimately offered me the job but I knew their culture was a bad fit for me.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The culture there was not a good fit for me. Office was drab and cluttered with bad lighting. Except for the recruiters, the people I interviewed with (5 total including 2 recruiters) didn't seem like they enjoyed their jobs. One of the recruiters that worked with was very pushy. The other was very sweet but resigned not long after I declined.

    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.
