Co-Op Engineer Interview
I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at GAF in September 2014.
I talked with 5 pairs. Some engineers, managers, co-ops. It took about 3 hours because we had lunch with them, then, did a tour of the factory for an hour. They just ask you basic behavior questions and about your projects. It would be nice to bring lots of questions so that you can show them how much you are interested in the position and working for the company.
- are you good at multi-tasking? have you had a conflict with a team member? how do you manage your time? if you have a time that you had to work under the pressure and how did you manage it? etc.. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at GAF.
There were three different interviewers. A tour of the plant was giving before the interview. Each interviewer asked one to three basic behavioral questions, for example: Can you remember a time when a team member had a conflicting issue and how did you resolve it? What are some of your goals you wish to achieve in your field of study?

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at GAF (Dallas, TX (US)) in March 2013.
Talked to them at the career fair, they took us out to dinner that night then called couple of us from the dinner to an on-site interview. The On-site interview process was long, you get interview by a lot of people at the plant, like 7 different interviews on the same day at the plant. Also gave us a plant tour.
- Most questions were behavioral, some of the interviewers repeated some of the questions. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at GAF (Dallas, TX (US)) in March 2012.
There were two interviews on different days. The first was immediately following the career fair and the second was offered after that based on how the first interview went. The first consisted of two people and was a typical straightforward interview. The second time, they flew me to Dallas; there was a tour of the facilities, a presentation, and I interviewed with several people from different branches of the company. The work culture was fantastic, everyone knew everyone and were as nice as they could possibly be. Me and another student who were on the same flight that got delayed so we missed the lunch they cooked for all the interviewees so they insisted on ordering us a pizza when we arrived.
There was no negotiations, they told me up front what the offer would be before we even started the interview.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at GAF (Burgaw, NC (US)) in April 2010.
Met at the NCSU Career Fair, had a phone screening interview with a few behavioral Interview questions. Interview at plant involved a tour, and 4 individual interviews with the Plant Manager and several other salaried employees.
- "Tell me an example of when you failed." That's a pretty common question, but it was as hard hitting as they got. The people are very friendly, and there wasn't much competition for the job. Answer Question
