Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Kalamazoo, MI
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kalamazoo, MI
Application Details

I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at Aerotek.

Interview Details

my recruiter was out of the office prior to the day of my interview hence another recruiter was assigned to "prep" me for the interview. during our phone call, she only told me the name of the hiring manager. that's it!!!! she had no clue about anything else. upon giving them my 2-week notice, it's her again. she asked me all kinds of questions which i already told her i did not feel comfortable answering, such as who my new employer was, why i was looking for a new job, what my new employer does. seriously?!?!?! why wouldn't i keep looking for a full time job when they've got me an hourly job without a termed contract?!?! what was with the interrogation? bad attitude too. I'm glad that she wasn't the one working with me to get the job I had. I will be calling her boss tomorrow to give him some feedbacks. (Aerotek Kalamazoo, MI)

Interview Questions
  • "Did you tell your recruiter that you were looking?" Of course not! Why would I have to tell him that I was looking for a longer term job? Isn't it obvious when you have an open-ended contract which can end any day you should be keeping an eye open? What made it worse was that she was asking as if I was committing a crime.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Aerotek in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a job from them that I saw online. Then I received a call from one of the recruiters for a "pre-screen" phone interview. He asked me the basics: what are your skills, what is it are you looking for, what are your salary requirements, etc, etc. Then he offered for me to stop by the next day to talk some more. Found out it was a staffing company. Didn't know what a staffing company was so he had to explain how they operated. I left his office feeling tricked, because I felt he initially led me to believe that he could actually hire me. Not saying this is a bad company, in fact we still keep in touch whenever he has any job leads. But I still wished he could have been more direct from the beginning.

    There is no negotiation with areotek. They will say whatever it takes to get you to take the position. Then will conveniently forget to give what was promised to you, and you will not get it.

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Aerotek in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    They seem like they are genuinely interested in finding their clients a job, if for no other reason than the sooner you get hired, the sooner they can take their cut. I don't mean that in a negative way, but that is how they make their money. I spoke with their engineering specialist, who was friendly and knowledgable. She asked me what I was interested in doing, what sort of things motivated me, and wanted to know more about my research experience. She closed with some sample interview questions, and then gave feedback on my responses. Overall relatively helpful, though I haven't found a position as of two weeks after the initial interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Aerotek in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Started by applying online to an engineering position.
    Recruiter called back and asked several questions about previous experience and how I solved some problems (std interview questions).
    Recruiter also asked why I wanted to "go back" to engineering since now I have been working as Product and Program Manager for the past few years. I explained they were technical positions that required my knowledge and experience to do a good job.
    The next day I received a call from the recruiter explaining they decided to go with another candidate who had been working directly as an engineer.
    The good part is that the recruiter took the time to call me back and explain. This is rare nowadays.
