Industrial Engineer Interview

Industrial Engineer

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at US Postal Service in May 2010.

Interview Details – It had two sections of interview. First one was a panel interview for 30 minutes or more. Then I received a second interview in the location I may get hire with my future supervisor and 2 persons. I got an offer about two weeks after the interview.

Interview Question – I was giving out the information for the previous work experience. The interviewer also asked for the detail number as the saving amount or what strategy I was applied to conduct the task. Sometime the information in my mind was not clear but I have to give a reasonable explanation instantly. Honest and assume the possible questions and answers will be good practice to prepare oral interview.   View Answer
