    Ground Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Sikorsky.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to a Super - Day as a result of my on campus interview. I had 4 rounds total. 3 of those rounds were on the same day but with different departments.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Very straightforward. If you feel you deserve a higher pay grade give examples why and give your increase as a percentage rather than a number. It is easier to value your work as a percentage increase of what they already gave you than asking for say $5000 more.

    Compliance Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Sikorsky.

    Interview Details

    Got a call from an outside recruiter and set up an in-person interview with the hiring manager, who was distracted the whole time and didn't really ask me about anything except what was on my resume. I was supposed to meet with a second person but they were unavailable. I got a call back a few days later asking me to come back for a second interview with a senior manager. Again, there weren't any questions beyond what was on my resume - the interviewer did 90% of the talking. I got a call from the hiring manager about 3-5 days later making me an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Really, there wasn't any. The interviewers did not really ask me about anything that wasn't on my resume.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I had to negotiate directly with the hiring manager. I told them the salary I wanted. They wouldn't give me an answer then, but I was told the actual offer would be on my offer letter that I would receive in a few days. When I received the letter, it offered me what I asked for.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sikorsky.

    Interview Details

    Straight forward process. I applied for the job and was called in to interview. Spent a few minutes talking with several people in the department, in sequence. I was asked about my experiences in school and what I hoped to do on the job.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coatesville, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sikorsky in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a panel interview with a direct manager, an overall manager, and two coworkers. They all took turns asking me questions, pretty much a review of my resume and general office skills. There was some behavioral questions, how I would react if this or that happened. After the interview they took me on a tour of the plant and then I had a one on one with the direct manager. Here she talked more with me on what I was expecting in the position and gave me an overview of the benefits offered.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question for me was "Why do you want to be in this role?"   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining
