    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SC Johnson.

    Interview

    Screening phone interview: the interviewer wants to know what you have done in your previous job. He will ask about what you listed in your resume. He will ask you in detail about your work experience, certificates and awards you got. It would be good if you prepare all of it before the interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SC Johnson (Racine, WI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process was planned and well-organized. Initial phone interview with the hiring manager after which I was invited onsite for a 1:1 interview which lasted for about half a day.
    Onsite interview process was based on STAR type of questions. Also, included a candidate presentation to a group. Did not hear back even after two weeks after interviewing and got a negative response after mailing to find out from the HR.

    Talent Acquisition Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Racine, WI

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SC Johnson (Racine, WI) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Terrible candidate & interview experience! I applied for a TA Manager role back in January of 2016, and within 2 days was contacted via email by one of the company's RPO recruiters (A.R.) We set up a time to talk. I completed the phone interview, and was told by the recruiter that he would follow up with me within a week. I never heard from him, nor anyone at SC Johnson, again. Very disappointed and surprised. I followed up three times with the Recruiter who never responded, then also with two others within the Talent Acquisition Dept. for an update. No response. What a complete waste of time. It's very important for a company to realize how damaging this type of candidate treatment really is. It hurts your brand.

    Senior Associate- Mechanical Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Racine, WI
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at SC Johnson (Racine, WI) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by corporate recruiter. After two phone interviews, I was invited on-site for a third interview. Interviewed with three groups of people. One person was a no-show, and his group wasn't aware that he was actually scheduled to travel for business that day.

    Interview itself was painless. I was told that decision would be made "in a couple of weeks." Three weeks later, I followed up to check on the status. After a total of six weeks from the date of the interview, there is still no response to my follow-up email.

    All in all, I think it's safe to say that I won't receive an offer. I do think though that not responding to a follow-up email is pretty rude, and I won't accept an offer from them at any point, no matter how far my career has progressed.

    Interview Questions

    • STAR type questions. One hint, if you're interviewing for an engineering position- they don't seem to care about your technical expertise, so showing a portfolio, or demonstrating past work, is unnecessary, and seemingly detrimental to your chances of receiving an offer. Just answer the behavioral questions.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at SC Johnson (Ann Arbor, MI).

    Interview

    Applied through my school website with my resume and cover letter. Then had a 30 minute in person interview. There were 2 interviewers: good cop and bad cop. I felt very uncomfortable the whole time and felt like they were trying to trick me with their questions. They asked for different examples of many questions.

Pros: “Good people who try. Some become numb and tired, other get frustrated and leave. Amazing levels of turnover are a sign that fundamentals are broken.”“Good people who try.
