    Corporate Manufacturing Accountant (Entry Level) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dalton, GA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Shaw Industries (Dalton, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was called one day while in class from an unknown number. Not wanting to be rude, I ignored it during class, but immediately called afterwards. I was speaking to a Recruiter and she told me she would send me an e-mail with an invitation to a Virtual Interview. The interview was on December of 2016. I accepted the interview and prepared for it for 2 weeks. Once the day arrived, I found a quiet place at my local university campus to perform the interview. I had to dial in 10 minutes ahead of time and be present in the "virtual lobby" 10 minutes ahead as well. At 2:00 on the dot, a man appeared. He was part of the Manufacturing division Accounting team and told me a lady would join us shortly from the accounting division that handles reporting and SOX compliance, etc., Shortly after she joined they asked me basic questions regarding my resume and didn't really ask their "STAR" questions. In fact, they told me my "Next" interview would be where I would be given the star method. After 10 minutes of some basic background info. from my resume, it seemed they were looking for an accountant with at least a year's worth of experience with database programming such as SQL and VBA Macros building for Excel. Of course, I tried to elaborate that I was eager to learn, and my background could prove it. Nonetheless, they finished off by telling me that by the end of the week they wanted to fill 4 slots available for the position. Out of these 4 slots, 10 were chosen to be interviewed including me. However, the interviewees would actually get a face-to-face interview as opposed to mine. The man closed by telling me if they didn't narrow it down to 4 out of the 10 they were interviewing, then they would reach out to me for further interviews.

    In the end, after one week went by, then another, then another. I finally received an e-mail confirmation a month after the interview telling me that the position had been filled. I never received a follow up interview and it seems they narrowed it down to their 4 entry-level accountants.

    Applied through company website. I was contacted by phone within 1 week to schedule an in person interview. First interview was with HR and Plant Manager. I was again contacted by phone within a few days to schedule a second interview. Second interview was with engineering director and process managers. Both interviews followed the same format. Interview format was structured to be consistent for each candidate by having predetermined questions. Questions were geared to competencies required for the job as outlined in the job description. Most of the questions were anticipated, but a few were not. Interviewers gave ample time to consider the questions and formulate answers.

    Over the phone basic not to detailed questions and very nice. There were no tricky questions or irrelevant questions. It was straight forward they also asked how many times in a year was i absent. After the over phone interview i was called the next day for a face to face the following Tuesday. That interview was 3 hours walking around the plant and being introduced to people. Then one by one you're interviewed while everyone else watches the line worker demonstrate the job applied for. After that you have a second interview with the head of HR. Basic personality questions. A week or two later they'll call you to finish up paper work and do a drug screen and tell you orientation.
