    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain.

    Interview

    One may come in for a 2nd or 3rd interview, since there are many "layers" within Saint-Gobain's management. That's also dependent on the role that one interviews for. I think the interview was a reflection of the company's general attitude (work hard, play hard)

    Entry Level Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The recruiter could not possibly look any more miserable. Seemed like she hated her job. Did not make me excited about the company. Also, I was lied to. Told the interview I was going in for was a final round interview, this was not the case. They wanted me to go in for more interviews after. No thanks! Terrible experience.
