    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at S.C. Johnson in September 2015.

    Interview

    There were 2 interviewers in the room and they took turns asking questions. They had one of the recruiters sit with you in the waiting room and make small talk so you felt more relaxed when you went in to interview. They were really nice and it was not super formal compared to other interviews I have been to. They had me walk through my resume and than just want on to behavioral based questions. After they asked you all of their questions they left plenty of time for you to ask them questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at S.C. Johnson (Racine, WI) in July 2015.

    Interview

    They will give you 1 week to get ready, fly you in to ORD or MKE. Then a driver will you up and drop you to your hotel. Those drivers are very nice, you can get lot of local info from them. On the day of interview you have to check in at the security and leave your bags there. It is a all day interview including lunch interview. So always be on your best behavior and be professional. Even during lunch they will ask questions but it is more 'get to know you type" questions. I met with 9 interviewers for individual and group interviews, including 1 hour research presentation.

    Associate Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at S.C. Johnson in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter, the recruiter did most of the facilitating. The process was long since the position was a global position and the stakeholders were on different continents. The people conducting the interviews were easy to talk to and asked relevant questions. The only bad thing I have to say is that the recruiter knew I wasn't particularly interested, so he told me a salary range beyond what was offered.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask about interests outside of work to get a feel of you as a person. This seemed odd at first, but it makes sense given they are focusing on attracting the right kind of people (friendly/outgoing).   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The offer was fair, so there was little need for negotiating. I did request more vacation time (based on my current vacation allowance), to which they obliged.

I wasn't thrilled about moving to Racine, WI, but there is more to offer than dreary/cold weather; beautiful fall colors, close to Lake Michigan, close to Milwaukee and Chicago, and sales tax is much lower than where I'm from (which was great when purchasing a car!) - They have support groups for diversity (Women, Hispanic, African American, Disabilities, LBGTQ, etc). - There are perks to being in Racine: company store, rec facility, park, child care center.” – Full Review
