    Operator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carrollton, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Southwire (Carrollton, GA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    online application ( mid November) followed immediately by online personality assessment. At the end of that online session, I was asked to continue by scheduling an assessment at their Carrollton Employment center. First open date wasn't until the first week of January. Passed that (mechanical aptitude and personality) so the computer scheduled the next step- PPE (physical performance evaluation), again first available slot wasn't until the last week of January. That took 4 hours to test 3 stations. Passed. The "intern" conducting the tests offered congratulations, then informed those who pass that you may or may not hear from HR for a face-to-face. Being an intern, he wasn't allowed to say much more than that. Just, can you work any shift needed and are you still interested based on the plants minimum hourly rate? That was 8 days ago. Honestly a frustrating process. So much time and effort spent by both parties, passing each evaluation, and I may not even receive the courtesy of a phone call by HR. I hope more is to come but the process makes me wonder about the corporate culture and treatment of its production workers.

    Interview Questions

    • The computer "mechanical aptitude" test was fairly easy for me but the fail rate seems to be high. Plenty of online practice tests available via google for anyone who wants to prepare.
      I expected more math than what was on the test.   2 Answers

    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Southwire (Carrollton, GA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Southwire posted a job ad in my university's Computer Science department. E-mailed my résumé in and they came on campus a few days later for interviews. The interview itself seemed pretty standard, and the questions centered mostly around verifying my résumé's accuracy. However, the recruiters weren't very specific in defining the roles and responsibilities of an intern at Southwire. Because of that, I not only had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I wasn't quite sure how to sell myself either. They assured me they'd keep in touch, and about a year later, I have yet to hear back from them.
