I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at AAR in July 2010.

Manufacturing Engineer Interview

Interviewed at AAR

Interview Details – Met directly with director of operations and senior engineer on a Saturday, they were very accommodating. No particularly tough questions, just asked about my experience. Configuration management heavy, as was expected. Was given a tour of the gigantic facility, there is clearly great potential for this location to turn into a manufacturing powerhouse, given the right people.

Test Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Goldsboro, NC

The process took a day - interviewed at AAR in April 2011.

Interview Details – I am working as a contractor through MST. I have a 6 month contract. MST set up a phone interview and AAR was supposed to call me. They called 1 hour late and blamed it on losing the phone number. The interview was short and (base on what I've seen this first week) not very representative of what is actually going on here. It was odd to get an offer the following week without an onsite interview. I accepted b/c my husband is involved in a start up so I'm geographically constrained and wanted something with a finite timeline.

Interview Question – Please discuss your resume.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I did not attempt to negotiate at this phase.
