    Associate Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dixon, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dixon, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Altec Industries in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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

    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.

    Engineering Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Daleville, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Daleville, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Altec Industries in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was granted an interview after speaking briefly with a representative at one of my school's career fairs and was invited to an info session at a local bar the same day, where they offered dinner and drinks to those invited. This is the beginning of the selection process, even though it's just a socially informative event- ask a lot of good questions, remember names of present employees, and show that you're interested. Most of the employees there WILL be the ones responsible for interviewing you, so don't be shy and get to know as many as you can.
    Interview questions were pretty simple and very friendly. Although another review very similar to this one says 1 HR rep and 1 engineer will interview you, I had mine with 2 engineers. They were actually running ahead of schedule so I advise you to get there not only on time but 10-15 minute early, for it can only look better for your candidacy if you are ready and there early.
    Was emailed with the rest of the students that had been present during the info session to a plant tour a week later- this was the last phase of the selection process. Again, be friendly, seem interested, and ask a lot of questions. They actually advise you to ask as many questions as you can so be ready. They called me a day later with their offer.

    Interview Questions
    • The two questions I can remember were:
      Tell me about yourself.
      How would you deal with a team member that was not offering much to the team's project?

    Associate Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Duluth, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Duluth, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Altec Industries in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    They called me and explained that the position was for an APPLICATIONS Engineer(mostly CAD), then scheduled a visit with the HR dept. When I arrived, I was sitting in the waiting room with someone interviewing for the same position.

    The interview then began in a room with three interviewers and myself. Two interviewers from the engineering department and an HR lead. It started with small talk and then progressed from there. They didn't ask any silly questions but mostly just listened to me pitch myself.

    Next, I went and did a second set of interviews with a second group of three interviewers. One from Quality, Materials, and Drafting. This group was slightly less chatty but overall the same system as the first group.

    After the interview was a tour of the facility, and then we parted. They guaranteed to get back to me but never called. I was later hired on through a temp agency and they recalled my interview so I did not have to Interview again.
