Getting an Interview
Project Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Barry-Wehmiller.
Interview Details – Pretty straightforward: phone interview followed by interview in their office. I was interviewed by the department manager and two of his underlings.
Interview Question – They ask you what you want to make instead of telling you what the job pays. They're hoping your number is lower than what they're willing to offer, thus saving them money. View Answer
Bilingual Executive Assistant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Barry-Wehmiller in February 2009.
Interview Details – It was very quick. I applied through the companies website (where I found the vacancy) and received a response from the HR department in 2-3 days. My interivew was set up within 2 weeks of initial contact since the senior executives were out of the office. The interview went great. First I spoke to the HR representative, then to the CEO and 3 other major executives. They were very nice to speak to and engaged in small talk especially the CEO who attempted to speak Spanish with me. They all seemed to be very easily approachable, open and easy to speak to and I felt very comfortable. From what I gathered they are a very people (employee) oriented organization and they have a very inclusive workspace. Many associates learn each others duties to back eachother up and be cross-functional. The office was really nice as well, it is smaller (about 3 floors or so) but very pretty with an open atrium and lots of plants and flowers (looked like a small oasis). The office is located in the hart of Clayton.
