I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics in October 2013.
Interview Details – Started with a phone interview a few days after applying to the position, fairly straightforward 30 minute call talking about the position and asking me about myself and my experience, was asked at the end of the phone interview to come in for the electronics test. There are varying levels of engineering technician at Crane but for Engineering Technician II, the test was about 15 multiple choice questions dealing with basic analog circuit analysis. After this test was taken on campus, it was graded in front of me and then I discussed the test and had what I'd call a "soft interview" with an engineer. He mainly talked about the test with me and went over the ones I had missed, but also discussed the company and my experience briefly, nothing in the form of interview questions however.
There is another step to the interview process which is an on-site interview with the lead Engineering Technician.
Interview Question – On the technical test, there are mainly DC analysis questions which can involve inductors. If you've mainly studied AC analysis lately and deal with only resistors and capacitors in filter configurations like I mainly had, be sure to study up. Answer Question
The process took 3 days - interviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics in May 2011.
Interview Details – Waste your time with an hour and a half "personality" interview, the software developers that sit in this farce are totally disinterested. Whiteboarding and algorithmic questions later, once you're half asleep from the earlier interview.
So first you'll meet with a manager and a developer to go through your life story. You're told afterwards it didn't really matter, but it's part of the "process".
Interview Question – Code/white board the fibonacci sequence. Answer Question
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics in January 2011.
Interview Details – It started with an test about op-amp circuits and basic programming questions for about half an hour. Then the HR manager and two other engineers in the department came in and start the interview. HR manager giving some behavioral questions like give an example of your leadership and how you qualify for this position. The engineers asked some technical question and ask me to draw the circuit on the white board when I'm explaining my school project.
