    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

    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ravenna, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (Ravenna, OH) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I was working for them as a temp and asked to wait for an interview. After waiting an hour after my shift was over, I was called into office where the interviewer proceeded to make me wait another 15 minutes. During this time the interviewer tapped at his key board and made some phone calls. What followed was a hostile interview where it wound up with me leaving fairly sure that I would be terminated the next day. The next day, H.R. hired me and told me the interview was designed to see how I held up under pressure.

    Interview Questions

    • I was told I should be following the methods of my predecessor which I had already clearly rejected based on unscientific principles and practices.   1 Answer

    Production Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Clearwater, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (Clearwater, FL) in May 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process is relatively comprehensive. Candidates interview with multiple managers from different departments. Director level management will interview candidates as well. The questions are straight forward and very direct. Different managers use different interviewing techniques with some using situational and other using direct questions about experience.
    Hiring is a bit of a process. Extensive background checks cause at least 2 week delays in start dates. All details of prior employment and education will be verified.

    Interview Questions

    • Expect questions on details of experiences. Expect questions about prior performance reviews. Expect answers to be picked apart to understand the extent of knowledge or experience.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiations were relatively easy. There was more flexibility on vacation time versus salary. Benefits are straight forward.

    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.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Garden Grove, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (Garden Grove, CA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Phone screen with HR, One-on-one interview with the hiring manager, followup interview with a panel of people from marketing.

    I went through this process, they said they would get back to me in a few days, but they took a month to get back to me.

    When they did get back to me, the offer was too low. I was VERY disappointed that they didn't bring up their extremely limited salary range earlier. They knew my salary history and expectations. This and their unprofessional lack of followup made it a negative experience overall, I felt like they were wasting my time.

    Interview Questions

    • No hard interview questions. They didn't have any case questions, etc.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was way to low.

I have never been part of a company that listens to their employees and then works as best they can to implement input & feedback from them. Not everything is done, there's a review process & scope of limitations but what can be done usually is. Most of the management team are hard working people who help their team and are very knowledgeable in their field.” – Full Review
