I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at AeroVironment in September 2011.

Interview Details – I wasn't going to apply, but I asked a friend who told me one of the requirements was code for "must be a US Citizen". The recruiter called and I had two phone interviews, one with the recruiter and then a second one with the hiring manager. Both went well. Then I was scheduled with three in person interviews, with the hiring manger, her boss, and one of her staff members who would have been subordinate to me had I been hired. I asked both the HM and her boss for the job. Each responded with, "It's not my decision". Then I waited, and waited, and waited. After about a month, I was told that they would not be moving forward with me.

Interview Question – I had a letter of recommendation from a former supervisor, who the hiring manager knew personally. She questioned the signature - "that doesn't look like his signature". I was sent the letter by his secretary via email.   View Answer

The process took 3 days - interviewed at AeroVironment in August 2010.

Interview Details – My first contact with the company consisted of a series of phone interviews with someone from HR, at this stage the salary being offered was covered. Within a couple days an on site interview was scheduled and I was provided with an application for employment and information on benefits. The in person interview consisted of the three parts, the first a group setting with someone from engineering and a customer service manager where general questions were asked such where to see yourself with this company in 5 years, once the engineering representative left the majority of the time was spent of reviewing line by line my resume and a role play test of dealing with an unsatisfied customer. After concluding the interview with the customer service manager, the person from HR asked a few questions that were similar to those of the customer service manager.
