    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    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.

    Material Handler Interview

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Farmington Hills, MI
    Declined Offer
    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.

    Production Technician Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Plastipak Holdings (Westland, MI) in April 2012.

    Interview

    It was simple. I interviewed with 2 people asking typically behavior questions. Then had to take a short quiz about my basic knowledge of technical stuff, it doesn't matter a whole lot if you don't do good. I got a tour of the facility after which was interesting. I heard back about a week later saying they wanted to offer me a position. Just show up in nice clothes, doesn't need to be a suit, and don't make a fool out of yourself. It's pretty easy.
