I applied online. I interviewed at Tenneco

Interview

Terrible. No organization. They just wanted someone to fill a position that would basically just make sure factory line wasn't on fire. It was easy to see through that, especially when they only planned to offer terrible base pay because they realized they would be paying you ridiculous overtime.

Interview Questions
  • Am I fine with working 11 days in a row with no days off. You can tell they were poorly organized and not open to new ideas. "This is how we've always done it" type of mentality.

Easy interview. Standard behavioral questions, lasted an hour. I found it hard to get a response back to my online applications and had to contact a recruiter directly over email. After that I was offered an interview.
