    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Bridgestone Americas (Nashville, TN) in October 2016.


    Applied on the Bridgestone website, heard back from HR rep a couple of days after the job posting closed. Had an initial interview with HR rep, she basically just gave me an overview of the position and wanted to make sure I was still interested. We then set up a phone interview with the Engineering manager of the team. He was very nice, and very straightforward about the process and position. Asked questions about my resume and experience. After this interview I heard from HR rep about 1.5 weeks to set up final on-site interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Met with some engineers from the team, and they asked behavioral questions. It seemed that they were more interested in how I work and my personality than my experiences. They wanted to see if I'd fit with the team.   Answer Question
