    Accounting Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cessna (Wichita, KS) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Over the phone interviews. Behavioral questions and some about yourself questions. They do not call you in to interview in person, due to high security throughout the company. They give 1-2 over the phone interviews, and they mostly want you to elaborate on yourself as much as you can so they can get a feel for if you are right for fitting the position.

    Marketing Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cessna (Wichita, KS).

    Interview

    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.
