Project Engineer Interview

Project Engineer
Kent, OH

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at AMETEK.

Interview Details – Placed by a recruiter. Had an initial phone interview with HR manager. Second interview was in person. Met with 4-5 managers and leads. Overall process was pleasant and professional. Everyone seemed very competent, friendly, and the new facility was very nice. Seemed somewhat casual, yet results driven at the same time

Interview Question – Had a lot of technical questions. Can't recall specific ones, but they wanted to get a good feel for technical competence.   Answer Question

Director of Sales & Marketing Interview

Director of Sales & Marketing
Oak Ridge, TN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at AMETEK in December 2010.

Interview Details – This seemed like a good company to work for, but as I already have a good job I was waiting for them to try and sell to me on the reasons to quit and come work for them. Many of the interviewers were enthusiastic about the company, but the HR Director seemed to take a different tack. She seems to approach the interview from a unilateral perspective, like I should convince them to hire me (when I was looking for someone to convince me to work there!). Afterward, I heard from the recruiter that she felt like I was not serious about the job (even though I took a day of vacation and traveled over 800 miles for the interview). Also, they did not seem to respect my time, in that they booked me on a flight itinerary which included a 4 hour layover in Atlanta, as opposed to a direct flight to Knoxville, because is was several hundred dollars cheaper. This resulted in me burning an entire Sunday away from my family, to accommodate their budgetary concerns.

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AMETEK in July 2011.

Interview Details – The post was advertised on one of the major job sites via a recruiter, but I was contacted directly by the company to arrange interviews. The process was short - two meetings with three different people including HR - and I was told I had got the job within a couple of days. Overall a very relaxed process.

Interview Question – Not really a question and answer format, more a case of talking through my career history and giving a prepared presentation.   Answer Question
