Marketing Assistant Interview

Marketing Assistant
Wichita, KS

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cessna.

Interview Details – My interview process went quicker than most. I met with Cessna reps at my college career fair and did a 30 minute interview that day with one of the recruiters. From there, I was extended an offer to fly to Wichita for an interview-weekend with other marketing candidates.

Once there, we spent the day working on an event-execution plan while each person presented an individual marketing plan to 6-10 people in the marketing/management departments. Questions were asked about our plan and marketing in general afterwards. After the interview day, we went to dinner with many of the people who had been at our interview earlier in the day. The following day we toured the Cessna factory and Wichita before flying out.

Interview Question – Is qualitative or quantitative measurement more important?   Answer Question

Government and International Contracts Manager Interview

Government and International Contracts Manager
Wichita, KS

I applied online - interviewed at Cessna in February 2009.

Interview Details – I started by submitting my resume and cover letter in response to an listing on the NCMA (National Contracts Management Association) web site. This resulted in a telephone interview with an HR hiring specialist. The next step was a telephone interview with the hiring manager and her supervisor. The company then flew me to Wichita from Cincinnati for a round of interviews. I received a job offer about a week later.

Interview Question – Because this was for a government contracts position, they asked several specific questions relating to the FAR (Federal Acquisition Regulations).   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They gave me a fair offer and I accepted.
