    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Altec Industries (Dixon, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Had a one on one interview with both the manager and operations manager at the site. Manager wasn't engaged in interview but I see that as his personality rather than the company culture. I was warned prior that many that worked there were from the Midwest and were a bit different from Californians and hired based off seemingly random traits or interests. Got a tour of the facility from the operations manager and encouraged questions throughout the tour.

    They do not require the EIT and have gpa requirements of 2.5+. Gpa doesn't factor much in hiring process. They prefer your gpa to be listed on resume regardless of what it is ( contrary to most other companies). Got back to me in a week after the interview.

    The interview with the first manager was difficult only because he seemed very uninterested from the start and stared at my resume the majority of the time I was talking.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Altec Industries.

    Interview

    I met the site manager and HR representative at a University career fair. After speaking with them they encouraged me to apply online. I was contacted within two weeks about setting up an interview. The interview was not very intense, rather it seemed more like an explanation of the operations at the site I was seeking employment at. In addition I was periodically asked questions to evaluate my engineering skills and personality.

    The overall feeling I got was that the company was very concerned with finding the right person that would fit in at the site for the position. It was also made clear that the company is very open to constructive criticism and is dedicated to self improvement.

    Interview Questions

    • I do not remember any specific questions. The interview was structured more as a continuous conversation with the employees at the site.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Interviewed on campus. Got a call within a week to interview onsite. Great facility and great people. Interviewed with 7 managers for one half hour each. I am expecting to get an offer soon. Very laid back interview. Almost no behavioral type questions. Very easy going and they pay for your meals and gas to get down there.
