    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gaithersburg, MD
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (Gaithersburg, MD) in March 2017.

    Interview

    One telephone "fit" interview and then one site visit interview which included a tour and 3 additional interviews. Mostly behavioral questions and a genuine interest in me as a person

    I will say this-- the interview on location made me really excited about the company. The Performance Plastics team at Gaithersburg is a really cohesive team, and I left the interview genuinely excited at the idea of working there. Although I didn't accept their offer, it was an extremely difficult decision and I wish my circumstances were different and I could work there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics.

    Interview

    Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics had the quickest turn around time from an interview process I've ever experienced. From interview to hire was under a month unlike other companies who really draw the process out. The interview was pretty standard as far as questions went, they had you speak to multiple division managers so you could learn about all aspects of the company.

    Interview Questions

    • They showed me a defective part and asked me to speculate on how it happened and my thought process behind resolving the issue.   1 Answer

    Human Resources Administrative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (Tampa, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It went pretty smoothly. When you show up they have you dial the interviewers extension from the lobby. They come get you after you sign in and put a visitors badge on. In the office they ask you some general questions and eventually narrow it down. They mostly like to know if you have the minimum skill required because others can be taught. But also how you interact with others to see if you're the right fit.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics in September 2014.

    Interview

    I found the position on Indeed.com and applied directly online through their website. After only a couple of days i was contacted via email by the Talent and Development Manager to set up a phone screening. My phone screening was the next day after i was contacted, and my in person interview was about a week later. The process moved very quickly and efficiently.

    Interview Questions

    • For the in person interview most of the questions were based off of projects/ responsibilities from my previous experiences listed on my resume. Not many 'standard' questions were asked besides "Tell me about yourself."   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (Mickleton, NJ).

    Interview

    Consisted on phone interviews at various levels of the organization within Human Reosurces, face to face interviews with various managers with the Operational function at the plant I was interviewing for. The time from interview to offer was a bit long, but understandable as there were multiple interviews at mulitple levels and they had to connect with each other. Very thorough and detailed information requested up front for background, education verifications which was refreshing. It good to know that a Company is doing its due dilengence up front.

    Negotiation

    Pretty easy. No complaints

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (Wayne, NJ).

    Interview

    I went through (3) prescreening interviews with the headhunter and a phone interview with the hiring manager prior to being brought on site for a panel interview with the hiring manager, hr manager, r&d manager and production manager. The site was old (1950s) and team brought little to make you want to work there.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (Aurora, OH).

    Interview

    I had an informal phone interview, followed by an in-person interview with my would be immediate supervisor and HR the next week. The phone interview discussed position specifics, my experience, and then because of the type of work this would entail, we discussed current social media trends and changes and how that could affect SGPPL. The in-person interview went over a lot of the same questions that we discussed in the phone interview and more detailed job specifics.

    • Honestly, none of the questions asked really took me by surprise. It was very open, dialogue flowed easily.   Answer Question
