Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bell Helicopter (Baton Rouge, LA) in May 2012.

Interview

Applied in January, received a call from HR on Monday of the second week in May notifying me of selection for an interview. Interview was two days later via phone. I spoke with the manager of my department and the engineer I would be assigned to. The conversation was very casual and there weren't any difficult technical questions. Once I was hired, I asked my boss why they picked me. He told me out right that they didn't really care much about technical knowledge, we were all engineering students and expected to know our stuff. The main point of the interview was to see how easy we were to talk to and gauge our enthusiasm for the company.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Bell Helicopter (Hurst, TX) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an internal recruiter who provided me with information for the formal interview. The interview was with multiple groups. I spent 1 hour in each interview. They interviewers mostly talked about Bell Helicopter and what the group daily work entails. I was not asked any difficult or tricky questions. Actually, the interview was mostly about what to expect from Bell. I received an offer a week later, but the HR process after this took almost two months. I got the impression this was actually a quick turn around compared to others. I believe Bell loses talented possible employees due to HR process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Bell Helicopter in July 2008.

    Interview

    Unbelievable interview: Starts with a HR lady with an extremely short and tight skirt. Hiring manager gave me the tour and asked the illegal question of if I was married. Director's interview consisted of him clipping his nails while grilling me on basic engineering questions. Then he leaves and wants me to write a 1 page essay on why he should hire me. I had a friend who already worked there who later told me that the place really old school and that she was leaving. HR guy invites me to lunch, but has me pay for mine. After trying to get an answer on hiring for 2 months, they finally gave an offer that I was able to turn down since I found another job.
