    Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Akron, OH (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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?).

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Goodyear.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process and scheduling seemed to be very organized for the number of people involved. I interviewed with 6 employees in professional/management roles. The schedule of the interview was presented clearly and we remained on task for the most part. Communications prior to and post interview were also well organized.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult or unexpected questions. All interviewers used the templated interview question format of describe a work situation when/where….x happened and tell us what happened, how you addressed/handled and the outcome.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Goodyear in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and a phone interview was scheduled with technical HR manager. Most of the questions were standard HR questions and few were about my previous experience. The interviewer was patient and friendly. Not a tough nut to crack if you do your groundwork beforehand.

      Difficult decision you made so far.
      Experience as a team player.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Akron, OH (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Goodyear.

    Interview Details

    Applied online (make sure to copy your answers to a word document - the form is wonky and my answers kept disappearing). After about two weeks, I was scheduled through recruiting company for a 30 min. phone interview. On the phone screening, the team mentioned wanting to move quickly (decision within two weeks). I followed up after two weeks since I didn't hear anything and was told there were no decisions made with the position yet. That was nearly two months ago and I haven't heard anything since (not even a note that they were pursuing other candidates). Pretty poor lack of communication.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too unexpected. General skill set and experience questions on the initial screening call.   Answer Question

    Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hebron, OH (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Goodyear in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    This was a great site with info for my interview, so I should share.
    Applied online (1.5hrs) via a link from college.
    3.5hrs later I got an email to take a proctored online test (1.5hrs).
    Took test on Friday morning, got a call first thing Monday, scheduled a 3person phone interview for that afternoon.
    Phone interview: LOTS of behavioral questions, plus the 2minute sell-yourself speech. (Both of which I failed as bad as the test I took) BE PREPARED, know your resume and be ready to explain it to them in detail without being asked any side questions!
    Amazingly, for failling everything so far I was invited to s 5hr "meet&greet" the following monday.
    Meet & Greet:
    there we 6 applicants, but only 4 showed up. DO NOT Wear a suit jacket, it would be overkill. I was the only person with a tie besides a GY engineer. Be ready for a full on psych observation from 16-20 people. 1/4 HR, 1/4 GY Senior Engineers, 1/4 Team you will be working with, 1/4 unknown.
    2 45minute interviews, both just me with an HR and with GY top Engineer, so a 2on1.
    The rest of the time was non-stop questions. BE SO READY FOR MANY BEHAVIORAL QUESTIONS!!!!!! Bring a pen & pad.
    I also failed this horribly. Never been asked so many behavioral questions in my life combined!

    Great people! Would have been a great job in Hebron Ohio at the new R&D plant.
    The pay was never given.

    Interview Questions
    • To many to think! Be ready for non-stop "tell us about a time when...." If you stall they note, it's hard.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Goodyear in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had a 20 minute phone interview with company recruiter. They called me back about a week later to set up an in person interview. The in person interview went as follows:
    1) 30 minutes talking with department director and IT manager
    2) 45 minutes talking with IT manager and and a senior developer - The questions were a combination of technical and behavioral
    3) 1 hour being grilled by three more developers with all sorts of technical questions
    4) 1.5 hours to complete a 6 or 7 page written "test" that the developers had put together

    Interview Questions
    • It was just the shear number of questions from many different people. This was a 3 hour long interview with questions from start to finish. It was tiring and seemed like way overkill.   Answer Question

    Quality Engineering Co-op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Goodyear.

    Interview Details

    It took almost 2 months to set up first interview. The first interview itself was a video conference interview. It was a panel of two, both from Quality Control department. They were friendly and listened to all the answers patiently. The interview covered most of the behavioral questions such as my plan for next five years, am I comfortable working in a team or not, what is the most difficult situation I have faced, what is the most tricky decision I have taken etc. They did not go much in the technical stuff. The interview lasted for over 45 minutes. They forgot to ask my availability in the interview so I received a mail from the HR department for the same. I provided my availability and did not receive any reply from them.

    Interview Questions
    • There were none. All the questions were simple and of the kind that one would expect in the first interview.   Answer Question
