    Engineering Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AAI Corporation.

    Interview Details

    The interview process involved a phone screening, which was conducted by an HR recruiter, and an on site interview. AAI initially insisted that I drive to the interview and assume the cost of travel and lodging. Due to the fact that I am located out of state, I refused. Subsequently I was contacted by AAIs travel agent who made the necessary arrangements. I made sure that the airfair, lodging, and rental car reservations were prepaid by AAI. The morning of the interview I discovered that AAI had planned a full interview schedule with no lunch break. I spent the entire day in interviews and was not allowed to eat lunch. In addition I had to interrupt an interview in order to find a rest room. After returning home, I submitted a reimbursement request for mileage to the airport, parking, and meals. AAI did not reimburse me for the expenses I incurred on the trip. The interview itself was disorganized, with interviewers swapping time slots at the last minute. There were also instances of interviewers passing me off to subordinates or co-workers who were not on the interview schedule and had no idea who I was or why I was there.

    Field Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AAI Corporation.

    Interview Details

    The application process was a simple one, as most are now days. Simply uploaded my resume to their site, and within a few few weeks was called for an interview. Although the application process was simple, everything else was a massive uncoordinated headache. I was sent three different interview times, was unable to reach anyone for clarification, so I ended up sitting for three hours in the main lobby waiting to be seen. When I was finally called in for the interview it was in front of a panel of four people. This many people conducting an interview tends to be excessive, adds little to no value to the process, creates a very intimidating environment, and honestly comes off as uncoordinated.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AAI Corporation in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact through a recruiter to set up a telephone interview with the Finance Manager and the Finance Director. Telephone interview with the FM and FD was straightforward and was mostly about my experience and they explained what their situation was to see if it was a match. Once they decided that I met their initial criteria, I was told that there would be a face to face interview. Call lasted 45 minutes.

    Recruiter than scheduled face to face interviews with the Finance Manager, 2 Program Managers, and 1 Project Engineer. She also scheduled another phone interview with HR. I had the HR interview via phone before the face to face interviews. I was expecting an HR brief of the company but was surprised that it was an actual "personality type" interview. The face to face interviews were 30 minutes each and were mostly pleasant and focused on what my role and relationship to them would be.

    Overall experience was pleasant but overly tedious.

    Interview Questions
    • I was not expecting the HR interview, but it seemed like she was coming up with questions straight from the manual. The one that caught me most off-guard was "If you could create your perfect job, what would it be?"   Answer Question
