    Production Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at AgustaWestland (Philadelphia, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I came in expecting an HR kind of interview based on what some people (not who I set the interview up with) told me before my interview, but it was a technical engineering interview so I wasn't as prepared as I could have been. They asked me questions I knew the answer to, but not off the top of my head with no preparation so that didn't go well. I was then given a tour of the facility and that was that.

    Interview

    At the time, in early May 2014, I was still serving in the Army and was attending a function known as Quad-A (Army Aviation Association of America) which was in Nashville, TN. I remember going to this event to pass out resumes as I was getting close to my discharge date. I was stunned when I saw Agusta with a booth in the Helicopter Association International (HAI) Job Fair as I drove past their building all the time to play Ice Hockey when back home.

    After waiting for over 10 minutes for the 4 Agusta personnel (2 H/R & 2 Display Booth) to stop talking to one another (Which should have been my first clue), I was apologized to and greeted warmly. We had a very long conversation ranging from my experiences in the Army, to my qualifications, to whether I had my A&P, to benefits packages, to where and when I was planning to move once I relocated back. All in all, it was about a 45 minute conversation and seemed to go extremely well. At the end I was told by L (Since I don't want to violate the rules of the site by posting her name) to call her directly, and/or e-mail once I had returned and was set up; which after our conversation we both knew would be around the second week in July 2014. I was still under contract with the Army for a couple more weeks but at that time would be free to discuss options without any contractual issues for them. With a Cheshire cat smile and a hand shake from L, and handshakes from the other 3 Augusta members, I was told by L that we would have a sit down chat in Philadelphia and would discuss more specifics at that time. I remember my friend saying "Well, looks like you found your job."

    I sent a thank you e-mail for their time later that night, and once I was settled back into Philadelphia in July I proceeded to call and e-mail L. After a week of no response I sent a second follow up email just in case I fat fingered something. Nothing. At the end of August I tried both a phone call and an e-mail one last time. Same. No response.

    Avionics Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AgustaWestland (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Somewhat informal and laid back. Not a highly technical job as a basic Avionics guy. Met with my future supervisor and director of operations, both 1v1. Received a brief tour and was asked mild questions by the HR rep, nothing about the process was difficult. The interview also didn't take too long. All in all it is a production facility that has very repetitive work, however, it is broken up into stages so you can move around and do different things during your stay.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you know what crimpers are? You do realize this is production work and it is very repetitive and you may get bored?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The negotiation stage was there, but I didn't have any leverage at the time. However, in my time here I have heard of more than a few people who did well in the negotiation stage.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at AgustaWestland (Cascina della Costa (Italy)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    You first need to send you cv through the website. Eventually you will be contacted for an assessment day which consists of two group interviews where you need to show off and demonstrate you can work with other people. Then there is a personal interview where you need to explain why you want to get hired. If these two steps are successful then you are invited to a technical interview.
