    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain (Portage, WI) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Met a recruiter at college career fair. Then got an invite to do a short video response interview online. After this I got an invite to do personal interviews for their plan in Portage, WI (where i applied to work). The personal interviews were a series of team interviews. I would interview with the head of a department or multiple heads of departments at one time. I arrived at 10:00 am and did 5 interviews and a plant tour. I was there until 3:00 pm. That was in November and I have yet to hear anything at all from them ( It is mid January right now). The interview process was pretty simple though. They just asked about simple questions about my resume and then asked me why I wanted to intern for them. They really had no questionnaire method to their interviews, more or less just let me talk for an hour each interview trying to "sell myself".
