    Senior Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Akron, OH (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Goodyear in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter contacted me early in the year and asked me to apply online. Did so and received a rejection email a week later.

    Recruiter contacted me again a month ago, asked me to apply online, again, for the same position. Did so and was called for a phone interview. Apparently did well enough on the phone interview to warrant an in-person interview. Interviewed with 4 different people, one from HR, three from the department. Received rejection email on the Saturday after the interview (work-life balance, anyone?).

    Legal Secretary Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Akron, OH (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Goodyear in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is a very extensive one, as one would expect from a company as large as Goodyear. I had four rather extensive interviews with both attorneys for whom the job was assigned. Two interviews were conducted by both attorneys at the same time and each attorney interviewed me again separately. Once those were completed, I then interviewed with the head of the department. It is a very thorough and professional interviewing process.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question for me was how my former employer would describe my best trait and my worst. Its tough to answer without sounding either overly confident or not worthy of the job.   Answer Question

    Development Engineer Interview

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Goodyear.

    Interview Details

    Interview was 45 minutes long. Basic Behavioral Questions. Had an online webcam interview with 3 people. The interview was very mundane, nothing too exciting. I wish they didn't have a webcam interview as it is very awkward and uncomfortable, especially since you can always see yourself during the interview.
