    Invoice Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marysville, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sumitomo Corporation (Marysville, OH) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied April 2016 and was called a month later in May to schedule a phone interview, after the phone interview I was emailed (same day) to set up a face to face interview about 2 weeks later. The interview was with the HR Mgr, Sales MGR and the person with the current position that you'd be working with. Interviewed was easy, the Sales MGR spoke most of the time and the HR Mgr could barely get a word in. The current employee was completely unprofessional- from attire to the things they said. After a couple questions, I had a tour of the building. I was there for about 2 hours. The HR MGR said they'd get back to me in about a week or so after they did the background checks. None of my professional references were contacted and after 6 weeks I gave up trying to call them back to check the status of my application. It was such a letdown that the HR dept could not even get back to me to let me know that I wasn't picked- as I assume that I wasn't- this seems to be the biggest problem nowadays. So be ware this company interview process is very long and they are not professional in returning any calls or emails I left for the couple weeks after I was told I'd hear something back.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about each prior job I had and why I left. Asked what salary I was looking for. Why I wanted this position. How would I handled a disgruntled person?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sumitomo Corporation (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The process was nothing out of the ordinary. The people seemed very nice. The Interview lasted for approximately 35 min and was a panel interview. I used a recruiter, however, I did not feel that this job was a fit for me and expressed that immediately following the interview to the recruiter.

    Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Novi, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sumitomo Corporation (Novi, MI) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I had applied for a different position, never worked in automotive. The HR department told me that they would like me to come in and interview for something else - however, when I asked for position details, they said they would let me know at the interview. At the interview they gave me no more info and lead off with the first question of why do you want this job. When I answered rather vaguely about the company, I was told off rudely "Well its clear you don't want the position specifically" even though I knew nothing about it. After talking to people a few years later it seems it's indicative of their company culture and glad I dodged a bullet on that one.
