Very Difficult Interview

Buyer - EDL Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Winston-Salem, NC

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at BE Aerospace.

Interview Details – Phone interview to determine if I was human... Then in person interview with four existing Purchasing people, including the hiring manager and three other "managers" from within Purchasing. Grueling four hour interview all four people asked behavioral questions worded differently and lack of interaction from interviewer. It was almost like they enjoyed watching you squirm.

It is pretty clear, just by interviewing with these folks in the department, tat they hate their job and do not care if you get that from them during the process. Also, constant references to expected work of 70-80 hours per week...no overtime pay as this was a salaried position.

At he end of the process, I was worn out and made to wit in the lobby for a member of senior management that just happened to be there. Talked with him too long about the same questions the other four had asked.

After the interview was over, I was back in the safety of my car I immediately called HR and withdrew my name from the candidates. If working there was anything like the interview, or working for the people that interviewed me, it would be one of those jobs you hate...it would erode you and your family relationships. I did not take that chance.

The Purchasing group has openings all the time, fo te same jobs, so their turnover is really high and not sure why. Look before you leap.

Read below for the most unexpected question, which I have never had again in all my years of interviewing...

Interview Question – Are you ready for the question I was asked by the hiring manager?

"How do you cook a hot dog?"

This is not a joe, interviewer was serious ... Blew me away....

Recruiter Interview

Recruiter
Doral, FL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at BE Aerospace in March 2011.

Interview Details – Process for hiring me showed the flaws within recruiting. Talent Acquisition Manager showed up forty five minutes late for the interview without any explanation or apology. While I didn't initially have a great impression of her based on her lack of personality and stern looks and frowns, I was surprised when I was actually offered the job. I needed to work, and took the job but later regretted it and ended up leaving.

Interview Question – Tell me how you would fill a position with absolutely no advertising budget. I was surprised by this question because it's a multi-billion dollar company, and to think that they refuse to spend money on any tools that recruiters need was amazing.   Answer Question
