    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Steelcase.

    Interview

    I was asked about my employment history, which was honestly pretty minimal. Then we talked about my future plans. I mean I'd like to own the company some day. That would be amazing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Steelcase in July 2017.

    Interview

    I was called in for an interview pretty quickly after applying online. However, as I arrived for the interview, I realized right away that I was just a "filler" candidate and the woman interviewing seemed unhappy and slightly disrespectful. I had the feeling she didn't want to interview me, but was supposed to. I still admire Steelcase as a company, however, I wish they would interview people they were only *truly* serious about -- because for both parties -- it is not a good use of time.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Steelcase in May 2017.

    Interview

    Prepare to be ghosted. The initial interview process went fairly steadily and quickly, with contact maintained between the HR representative and myself with regularity- even in off-hours. I was one of the final three candidates, and went to the headquarters in Grand Rapids to meet with 4 team members in a total 2 hour interview with 2 separate groups: one person on location, and one phoning in from the office in Mexico.

    I appreciated the process-oriented approach they took with questioning, and enjoyed the people that I met. However, it has been nearly complete radio silence from the company ever since (5 weeks later), with only one of my emails being returned with only a mention that a response would be forthcoming on Monday (2 weeks ago). I have been told nothing as to hiring status, or even told that I (clearly) did not get the position.

    Not being the chosen candidate is expected during any job search, but to be completely blown off, and not receiving feedback whatsoever is completely unprofessional and unacceptable.

    Interview

    So far I have only been for a first round, in person interview. It was relatively basic but pleasant. They asked about my experience and to tell them about myself, they were very patient with all my questions and seemed genuinely interested in learning more about me.

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Steelcase (Grand Rapids, MI) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Steelcase hires contractors through a staffing agency called Experis. They began with a pre-screen and I made it to the first phase of interview process. I was very comfortable during the process and they were very accommodating with my schedule, which was a huge bonus.

    Senior Graphic Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Steelcase in October 2016.

    Interview

    I only had an initial phone interview with the HR recruiter, since I was applying from long distance. It did not go well. The HR rep was rude and asked insinuating questions. It did not give me a very good impression of the corporate culture and I'm thankful It didn't go any further. Companies think it's acceptable to treat potential job candidates like garbage, since you need them more than they need you. However, this kind of logic fails to consider that one bad review on a site like this may in the future cost you hundreds of qualified employees. The HR person is the first impression anyone will receive of your company. You want that to be a good one.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Steelcase in September 2016.

    Interview

    Four in-depth interviews with local and regional managers. Very professional and thorough, including an online assessment questionnaire. The last interview required studying research from their website and developing a PowerPoint presentation that you deliver to 3 managers. It is not a short process and it a bit frustrating and time consuming. But they are friendly and it's a large manufacturer with a good reputation.
