Engineer Interview

Engineer

I applied in-person - interviewed at ATS Automation Tooling in February 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process was fun and somewhat informal. I interviewed multiple people at the same time who put me at ease by adding some humor to the conversation. The company has a laid back culture and employees are very much into sports and outdoor activities. They gave me a tour of the factory that was really cool.

Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through college or university - interviewed at ATS Automation Tooling in July 2013.

Interview Details – Applied via school portal. Interview was straight forward, and was with one of the senior engineers. As such, not too much on the HR side of things. Interview began with him asking if I had any questions, and then questions about my background (he just went through my resume).
Afterwards, there were just a bunch of technical problems, involving basic physics, spatial reasoning, and some real life cases to analyse.

Interview Question – Nothing really. Everything was pretty standard. Goofed up on one of the case studies, though.   Answer Question
