Business Systems Modernization Analyst Interview

Business Systems Modernization Analyst
Hurst, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bell Helicopter in January 2012.

Interview Details – Single interview while I was in college for a contracted, essentially internship, position. The interview process involved questions about what our current understanding of how businesses operate, what Bell Helicopter does, what we're doing in our project, and how we can contribute positively to the process. I would say it was one of the most straight-forward interviews i've been in and the most practical.

Interview Question – Interview was fairly striaghtforward and I think the most difficult question was what we knew about the project and how we could contribute. It was a pretty interesting project and knowing about what they were doing there is what helped out in the long run. Outside of that you're expected to understand the chain-of-command in a business and proper channels to go through when moving forward with something.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No.

Engineer Interview

Engineer
Hurst, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Bell Helicopter in May 2010.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Can I tell you how I got my patent?   Answer Question

Organizational Change Management Interview

Organizational Change Management
Hurst, TX

I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Bell Helicopter in April 2010.

Interview Details – After submitting my resume online, I received a request to complete their job application. The application was long, detailed, and required attachments due to limitations in the software. I received a call from HR who scheduled the face-to-face interview. The HR rep did not have any additional information about the job or responsibilities, so interview prep was challenging.

I interviewed with two people: supervisor and peer. They asked technically specific questions as well as behavioral.

It has been almost a month since I interviewed and I have not heard anything (despite repeated follow-up).
