    Mechanical Engineering Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BE Aerospace.

    Interview Details

    I met a recruiter at a university job fair and had a good experience with him. Kept in contact via email and he helped me find the appropriate positions to apply to online. My first interview was over the phone with HR and lasted about 30-45 minutes. I made it to the next round and then spoke with the initial recruiter and another engineering manager over the phone, and phone interviews are hard enough 1 on 1 but it was 3 people all in separate areas calling into a conference. I heard back a few weeks later to find out that they were only accepting two people but I was the third. I wasn't too upset because they said their workplace did not have very many females at all and as a woman engineer I'd like to work in a gender balanced workplace.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at BE Aerospace in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial meet and greet. Called in for a pannel interview that consist of 5 segments. Technical, cultural, leadership, tour, lunch. Everyone was really polite and the experience was great. I was nervous going in but as soon as it began, i felt better. They ask you questions to recall situations in the past to demonstrate these skills so be ready.

    Sales Associate Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at BE Aerospace in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    First did a phone interview. Within an hour had in person interview scheduled. When asked when I wanted the interview I gave them a time but the recruiter who is based in Florida and I in Kansas scheduled it for his time so then I had to move the time up an hour. The interview consisted of me meeting with a manager and hr rep on the phone (in Florida). During the interview I was not asked the normal questions like my strengths, weakness or situational. I felt that bc my current job has me pretty working alone and not taking direct directives that it hurt bc the job I was interviewing for would have me being told what to do. I even told them that I could do that. Also when asked what my career goals were they were surprised I actually had a plan (just have to get my foot in the door to get there). I asked at the end when there might be a decision and was told within 2 weeks (there was a holiday the following week). I was contacted 3 days later for a second interview. The 2nd interview was with the manager from 1st interview, manager from warehouse and program manager (on the phone from Tulsa). Again not asked normal questions. They are big on knowing excel using v look up and pivot table which I know some but not advanced. Was told a decision would be made by the next Tuesday. That Tuesday came and did not hear anything. I called and found out she was not there (was still gone for the holiday) so I left a voicemail and did not hear back. Emailed the recruiter and was told he would get back with me the next day. Did not hear back so I emailed him back and for a response that he was out of the office for a week. By this point I'm upset that I'm getting the run around and no one seemed to know they would be off work for a few days. I called the manager again and finally spoke with her and was told that they chose someone else but they would have another position open and I should reapply for it.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BE Aerospace in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through their website, and got a call a week later for a phone screening. I was scheduled to go in for an interview a week later. The interview went well, lasted about an hour. Everything was very professional, I was interviewed by 1 person and a 2nd person joined in via phone conference. Would have loved to work there, but got no call back after the interview.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at BE Aerospace in February 2014.

    Took several months to finally get a call. Talked to HR then they took 3 weeks to call me back. Had a very good interview in my view, but unfortunately they went with an internal candidate.

    Interview Questions

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winston-Salem, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winston-Salem, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at BE Aerospace in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was asked many rigorous questions about my past experience and how I would apply my skills and knowledge on the job.
    When I left the interview, I was told that I should expect a phone call the following week; which never happened.... Usually, well-established companies let candidates know whether they are selected or not, especially at this point far in the process. Disappointing experience....

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Everett, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Everett, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at BE Aerospace in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Had initial phone screen with HR after in- house recruiter mined me from a site. Then on-site interview. Met with hiring Director 1st & went way over time (his choice). So the remaining 5 or 6 interviewers started piling up on one another in this tiny room & it was very difficult because just as I was starting or finishing an example or STAR, another 1 or 2 would walk in & I'd have to bring them up to speed, etc. or start over or guess if it was even something they wanted to hear. It wrapped up after 4 hrs (supposed to be 3). HR Manager took me on small tour & said they would advise me of their decision in 1 week max. They were all great and personable but I was up against an internal candidate. And they went with a the known entity from another division (Miami). I can't fault them on their logic. I was disappointed bc the HR Manager promised feedback over a month later I still haven't heard anything. I'd hoped to gain some gems to improve so next time they would want to take the leap of faith. Also kind of sad to find out via website after no response for 2 weeks. Director of Eng is phenomenal & would be awesome to work for. Pod work environment with true value chain teaming!

    Java Programmer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at BE Aerospace in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I got the interview through a staffing agency recruiter, who lied and told me that my skill-set was perfect, and I went straight to the interview without even a phone screen. When I got there, I met 1 on 1 with the hiring manager, who told me about the position and asked about my skillset. He seemed to be single-mindedly focused on what I did in my last position and ignored everything I said about my recent education, aptitudes, and positions before that. It turns out I did not have the right skillset, the interview only lasted 20 minutes, and I was rejected the next day. I was relieved because I would have been the only developer there and would have had to have worked about 60+ hours a week including nights, weekends, and being on-call. The recruiter lied about the location too - it was actually an hour away from where he said it was. I think the recruiter wasted my time and there should have at least been a phone screen with the company first.
