    2-on-1 on-campus interview. The interview focused mostly on behavioral questions. The interviewers wrote down every answer while you were speaking which was intimidating for me. They were looking for use of the STAR method when answering questions.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SC Johnson (Tokyo (Japan)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter from sgsco was very unprofessional when she arranged meetings to discuss my background she would interrupt me changing the subject to the context of the next scheduled meeting asking about salary requirements and other work conditions and constantly repeating the same conditions that were in the JD or previously announced and agreed upon.
    She strung me along for 2 months and was not able to iron out the conditions of the position and in the meantime the position was cancelled (undoubtedly because of her failure to make a viable organized solution proposal).
    The recruiter was not clear about the job content throughout the process even thou she seemed to have written/uploaded the content to indeed.com herself.

    Interview

    STAR process - one or two people would sit and ask a series of predetermined questions that they didn't veer from ... when the questions didn't apply, it was very awkward.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SC 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.
