Senior Accountant Interview

Senior Accountant
Akron, OH (US)

I applied through a recruiter and 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?).

Interview Question – Nothing difficult or technical. All "tell me about a time when..."   Answer Question

Development Engineer Interview

Development Engineer

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself.   Answer Question

Legal Secretary Interview

Legal Secretary
Akron, OH (US)

I applied through a recruiter and 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 Question – 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
