    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at SolarWorld in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    SolarWorld Germany is expanding to America, a new plant in Hillsboro, OR. My interview process was well planned and I feel it went very well. The HR dept called me to schedule a date and time, they were flexible and accommodating. I was interviewed by a panel of about six people, whom all asked questions ranging from specifics off my resume to work related life experiences. we had conversations about my career plans and motivations for working at SolarWorld.
    The people interviewing me seemed fair and honestly curious of my personal fit with the company. They were very straight forward with the position requirements and the job settings. they gave me a good feeling that this was a crew I would enjoy working with.
    In the end, the majority agreed I had the skills required, my personality fit, and my motivations aligned with corporate objectives. Believe it or not, personality fit s very important in hiring process as interviewers want to be sure you will be mentally satisfied with the job to provide a lasting career with the company not just a job your likely to leave due to undesirable atmosphere. An offer was made within days of the interview and I negotiated a mutually beneficial offer.
    I currently work at SolarWorld Hillsboro, and love my job there.

    Interview Questions
    • Why would you like to work specifically at Solarworld and not any other company?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation is difficult, you must consider what your worth but also the economy and what a company can get for less. I would say my negotiation process was unique and its difficult to say what ever persons situation should be.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Science-based behavioral type questions. Not too difficult. The interviewer was personable and made an effort to help along the process if something wasn't clear to them. Initial interview had essentially zero technical questions. Second interview would have been more technical had I gone back for it.

    Interview Questions
    • Just be up on behavioral interviewing and it shouldn't be too bad.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Declined second interview, not job offer. Took an offer with a different company.
