    Anonymous Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Fluke Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Process was basic and could use some fine tuning. The conference room was blah and you could tell the chairs were broken or breaking. I had one interviewer who left 20 minutes into our 1 hour interview so that was a bit awkward. I also learned about what it meant to be in Boeing traffic.

    Senior Technical Writer Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Fluke Corporation in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Prepare to drive the interview; the panel of 4 reserve 50 minutes per interview, back to back. Sell yourself, they love themselves, but have little to no experience speaking or translating into other languages. Actual documentation shows problems with parallel construction that is perilous for translation into European languages.
    The Fluke 754 has features we know you’ll love: increased accuracy, enhanced reliability, and is easier to read in dark environments.

    Interview Questions
    • Why would you fit into their corporate climate (they tell you nobody leaves once they get hired, but a little research shows high job turnover, esp. in the writing team). Such incongruities undermined the interview for me. Perhaps it would be your cup of tea. I don't sense corroboration or collegiate work ethic.   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    A closed group, with undeserved self-importance who achieved job via family member with no writing experience. No questions regarding documentation. Overinflated view of their role in the company.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Fluke Corporation in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    This position was through an agency so the second interview was on site at Fluke. Straightforward and to the point questions, can you do the job - yes, are you dependable - yes. Basically just want you to be consistent and have a good attitude. 30 minute interview, don't try and embellish your answers, just get to it, they are busy.

    Human Resources Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Fluke Corporation in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process took about 6 weeks and included skype/ phone interviews, meeting stakeholders at different business units of the group, as well as IQ/ personality test.

    The meetings with stakeholders were arranged back to back for half a day, without any break in between. Both times I was given the exact details of who I would be meeting only once I had arrived for the interview. Was sent a travel guide to assist with travel bookings, which was great. Also got the opportunity to take a tour of one of the business units, which was very interesting and gave me valuable insights as to what the role would entail.

    Travel cost have not been reimbursed, despite written committment from the company to do so.

    Interview Questions
    • was surprised to be asked "trick" questions to test my knowledge on certain areas.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The position required frequent travel, including being away weeks at a time, at least twice a month. According to the job spec the role was to be based at my place of residence with a requirement to travel. The actual expectations where only made clear when I specifically asked for it at the end of the interview process, following up on a comment made by one of the stakeholders.

    Actions speak louder than words, and while the interviews at the first business unit left me wanting to work there, the interviews with the stakeholders at the second business unit left me in doubt that this indeed was the great place to work I was being told about.

    Reporting Manager Interview, Then Management Level Interview
    Extremely Slow and unresponsive panel for interview. Neither they reject you nor they select you but you will continuously be told that you will be called for next round. The next round comes so late that you loose interest for the job. Please utilize your leaves and time judiciously and consider attending this interview in case you are really interested and have patience to wait beyond 2-3 months

    Content Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Fluke Corporation in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was originally asked for an interview at a recruiter for a position they thought was fitting for me. The interview at the recruiter was a pleasant experience with what felt like personal interest for my abilities and work history, and they recommended me onwards to Fluke. Fluke took several weeks (during which my recruiter tried to get in touch with them on just about daily basis) to get back to the recruiter, after which they invited me for an interview at the office.

    Thanks to muddied communication I arrived at the wrong location, where I tried to find out where I was supposed to be. I asked Fluke's receptionist where I was supposed to be, at which I got an exasperated eyeroll and waving of hands. She merely pointed in a generic direction, and in English that I quite didn't expect from an international company's representative, mumbled instructions. Luckily the location was nearby and I found my way to the office where I was supposed to be.

    After an interview that I can only describe with the word "seemingly nice but not at all", I had a feeling my interviewer had not even read my CV. He was surprised at some things I mentioned that were clearly written down in my CV! I left feeling like my time wasn't appreciated whatsoever.

    For my second interview I was interviewed by two people (an HR representative and a MarCom representative) who seemed to be up to par. This interview was insightful and very challenging, but didn't really mend the bad feelings I had gotten from my first one.

    However, in my situation I was more or less forced to accept the offer I received after the second interview.
