    Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Carrier (Indianapolis, IN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    After applying, I was contacted by an HR Associate and scheduled a telephone interview. Waited for her call at the scheduled time and I did not hear from her. I called her phone at work and cell phone and left a message. The next day, she explained that she got pulled into a meeting and could not make the scheduled call. (Really? How inconsiderate) Finally, at the second scheduled interview, she called me late. I thought everything went well and she was easy to talk to. She told me that she would pass my info onto her hiring manager and in a few days, she'd call me back. Never heard from her again. I left a voicemail and sent an email asking if I was still being considered a candidate. I am surprised at how unprofessional this company has handled this after telling me how wonderful her company is.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    I was invited to take part in an on-campus interview with two carrier sales engineers. The first was quite pleasant and asked very pertinent and intelligent questions. The second asked harder questions. I took an extra second to think about the hardest one he asked and I could almost see the judgement in his eyes. I am sure this is the reason I did not get the job.
