    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Sikorsky.

    Interview

    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

    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.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Sikorsky in July 2014.

    Interview

    Surprisingly little formality to the process. For an all-day visit, I was not given any agenda before or upon arriving. Interview was largely haphazard meetings with team members. I'm reviewing primarily to note their delay in reimbursing travel expenses. It's been a month already and I'm told it will be at least 2 more weeks. While inquiring about this I learned that my only contact was out-of-office for 2 weeks without providing a delegation contact, and my inquiries elsewhere in the company led nowhere, as they said they had no access to my expense info because I wasn't an employee. This and their use of outdated paper forms did not inspire confidence in their internal processes.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sikorsky (Stratford, CT).

    Interview

    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.

    I found this interview process to be fairly easy compared to interviews at other companies. They didn't challenge me with any tough questions and didn't try to evaluate my skills.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't many difficult questions. Mostly they explained to me what the job would entail.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation available. Sikorsky gave an offer and I had to accept it or not.
