Design Engineer Intern Interview

Design Engineer Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at C&D Zodiac.

Interview Details – Met at a campus career fair, didn't have any previous knowledge of the company. The recruiter took my resume and I heard back in a couple weeks about coming in for an on-site interview. They gave me a tour of their main facility in Huntington Beach and I had a brief one on one interview with the same guy who recruited me. Really relaxed interview almost entirely about my resume and past experience. Only about 30 minutes long. Got an offer via email a couple weeks later. Very friendly company, albeit quite small, with an open atmosphere for employees.

Interview Question – Why are you interested in working as a design engineer?   Answer Question

Design Engineer Interview

Design Engineer
La Palma, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at C&D Zodiac in July 2012.

Interview Details – My initial application was sent through a friend to the HR department. The response time was within a week, and the interview was a week after. The people that interviewed me were very friendly, and unlike other places I interviewed at, the first thing they did was take me on a tour of the shop floor. They explained what the position was and what the company did. The interview revolved mostly around my resume and past experiences as a recent graduate.

Interview Question – The CATIA test was somewhat difficult, especially if you have never used the program before. Both modeling and drafting exercises were given.   Answer Question
