Senior Mechanical Engineer Interview

Senior Mechanical Engineer

Interviewed at WMS Gaming

Interview Details – I met with the group of engineers I would be working with, my supervisor, and his immediate boss. I was shown the facilities by an hr person, which were very impressive. The campus is very spread out so make sure to get very detailed directions on where to report, otherwise you may end up being late.

Interview Question – I had to review a mechanical drawing and point out any issues   View Answer

Engineering Intern Interview

Engineering Intern
Chicago, IL

I interviewed at WMS Gaming in May 2013.

Interview Details – The interview consisted of a number of behavioral type questions including greatest strengths and weaknesses. They were mainly concerned with creativity level and approach to analytical problems. Clearly they were looking for previous work experience in the gaming industry, or an industrial type setting. A high GPA (>3.0) was key for getting the initial interview.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you had to use your leadership skills to overcome a problem in a team setting? What was the problem, what actions did you take, and what was the result.   Answer Question

Associate Software Engineer Interview

Associate Software Engineer
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at WMS Gaming in March 2013.

Interview Details – Got the hiring manager's contact from school project. First interview is with HR on site while visiting the company. Later on received a phone inter view with a panel of two. Questions are engineering questions, and the project I did before. Since it's a internship offer, I feel like it really depends on the hiring manager's preference so it could vary.

Interview Question – I had a little bit hard time when questioned about technical details about computer graphics, so definitely warm up yourselves before taking the phone.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation because it's an internship.

Interview Question – How much do you know about computers.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no chance given to negotiate, the offer was take it or leave it.

Principal Business Intelligence Analyst Interview

Principal Business Intelligence Analyst
Waukegan, IL

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at WMS Gaming.

Interview Details – HR made initial contact 2 days after the application was submitted. The phone screen was scheduled in the afternoon of the day after and took approximately 30 minutes. HR called back about couple hours later and informed me that the hiring manager invited me for an onsite interview. The technical phone screen was omitted(that is the normal process to have the technical phone screen first). The onsite interview took place a few days later and was about 3 hours - 3 rounds, 45 minutes each. The interviewers were a fellow analyst, hiring manager and some technical resource. Overall the experience was not bad. The first two was rather pleasant. They were very nice and friendly. The culture seem very flexible and welcoming.
HR called back about an hour later to inform their decision to extend an offer. Not sure if it is normal to move so quickly.

Interview Question – The questions were pretty standard. Most of them are about the relevant work experiences and behavioral questions. The most unexpected question was asked by a technical resource on ETL questions which was not what the position required.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The HR will speak to you regarding the terms before presenting the actual offer letter. Negotiation was not bad.
