    Cash Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Cubic.

    Interview

    Was called within a couple weeks by the HR to set up a face-to-face interview. Met three people: the HR and two who I would be reporting to, one by one. But before any interview, the HR covered the benefits first. The whole interview took about an hour, and I was shown around the building. It was an overall a pleasant experience. I knew I wouldn't get the job as soon as one of the higher people expressed concerned that I never took a business class. Received a rejection email the day after the interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Cubic (San Diego, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Somewhat casual interview with the team you would be working with. They just went down my resume asking questions about what was on it and any projects I have done along with how my experience went. Discussed group projects also what was the biggest project I have ever worked on.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cubic (San Diego, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Went to interview at plant as scheduled by HR intern. Went to interview 10 min ahead of time set. 35 min later, HR rep (not intern) appeared and told me intern scheduled wrong day and asked to re sked for following day. Next day, went in as scheduled. HR rep seemed agitated as though I was an inconvenience. Following that engaging experience, went on daisy chain of interviews from office to office. Learned that interviewers were not sure what the role's responsibilities were of the position I was interviewing for. Interviews were more conversational than behavioral based. At end of interview, I was escorted back to reception space and essentially dismissed. I had previously mapped my quals to their specific reqmts, so they knew I was qualified. Never heard back from anyone in the company. After 2 weeks and no feedback from Cubic, I learned from a contact within the company who had referred me, that no one who had been interviewed was going to be selected... Essentially they were window shopping for the purple squirrel. Their actions spoke louder than words, am happy in retrospect I dodged that bullet. Knowing what I know now, would not work there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cubic (San Diego, CA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was called for a phone interview which lasted about 30 minutes. I am expecting a follow up call and possible in-person interview. The interviewer gave me general talking points and expected me to expand on them and relate them to my coursework and individual projects. I was doing most of the talking for the 30 minute interview.

    SUPPLIES ASSISTANT Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Cubic (London, England (UK)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I first applied through indeed.com and then received a email few days after about fixing a face to face interview. The actual getting to the building is a bit tricky as signal is really bad for using Google maps. After I got to the building I was told to go upstairs and wait in the reception. From there I was greeted by the manager and we went into the interview room where also the HR manager was. The whole interview lasted 25mins and was just all behavioural questions. I was told I would get a reply soon and did get an answer but around 3 weeks later though. The interview went well but I lacked experience thus didn't get the job.
