Engineering Technician Interview

Engineering Technician
Bayport, MN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Andersen Windows in March 2013.

Interview Details – I interviewed with two sets of Engineering staff at Andersen Corp. on a Monday, for a position as an Engineering Technician. The first set of interviewers was the Engineering Manager, and an Engineering staff member. The second set of interviewers was an Engineer and a Design Leader. The interview included some of the classic H.R. situational questions (they even admitted that they were scripted questions, but they had to ask them regardless). For the most part, the interview was basically a discussion of my past experience in the field. I felt I was encouraged to discusss in detail some of the experiences and inter-personel situations I had to deal with. I felt very comfortable with all the interviewers, and never felt any aggresive questioning. They just wanted to know what kind of person I was, and what my skill set was. I was hired two days later on Wednesday.

Interview Question – There were no unexpected or difficult questions. I prepared myself in advance, and I had extensive knowledge of the company, and expertise in my field.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation during the interview. I expect this will happen after all the security, backround, and drug testing paperwork is completed. I know that this position will fall in my expected pay range, irregardless.

Engineering Intern Interview

Engineering Intern
Bayport, MN

The process took a day - interviewed at Andersen Windows in September 2008.

Interview Details – I approached them at the UW-Madison engineering career fair and due to my interest in the company, I was granted an interview for the following day. The interview was 20 minutes long with two other Andersen Engineers. They asked behavioral questions as well as background questions about myself. I believe I got the job offer because I showed them that I valued their close-knit community and personal atmosphere and I made it clear that I could see myself making a career with their company. They want to hire interns who will come back as full time employees.

Interview Question – Tell us a time you had to convince someone to do something when they disagreed with you.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't do any negotiating. They made me an offer the same day of the interview and I was given a few weeks to accept.
