    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    The process took 3 days - interviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Waste your time with an hour and a half "personality" interview, the software developers that sit in this farce are totally disinterested. Whiteboarding and algorithmic questions later, once you're half asleep from the earlier interview.
    So first you'll meet with a manager and a developer to go through your life story. You're told afterwards it didn't really matter, but it's part of the "process".

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics.

    There was first a phone interview in which I had to talk to about 6 people on the other line about my prior experience. Afterwards the in person interview involved sitting at a conference table with the same people fielding different questions. The questions ranged from discussing prior work experience to how I would feel about certain hypothetical work problems. Nothing technical in terms of programming ability was discussed.

    Human Resources Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by e-mail to see if I was still interested in the position. I then went through an hour phone screen session and was then asked to make a campus visit. The interview was in CIDS (Chronological In Depth Interview) and about three hours long. It consisted of about five managers and myself. They all had a copy of my resume and a questionnaire they filled out while I spoke. They told me before hand the type of interview it would be. The whole process start to finish took about 5 weeks. It was over the holidays, so I suspect that is why the process took so long.

    Interview Questions
    • Did you ever have a teacher you did not get along with? Why?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They offered me exactly what I had been paid in my last job and I was very surprised by that. Make sure you do your research on the "market" price for that position and ask at least 5k more than that.

    Crane brought me into a conference room with four senior members of the team and the HR manager. They were all incredibly welcoming and clearly took a look at my resume before I arrived. A lot of the questions focused on how I fit into the company culture as it was assumed that my educational background and experience qualified me for the position.

    Mechanical Engineer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted by HR, stating they had received my resume and wanted to know if I was interested in a summer internship. To this day we have not established where they obtained my resume. During this initial call we established my educational engineering interests and projects, and then set a time for a phone interview with the engineering hiring manager.

    During the phone interview with the manager, we talked about how Crane functioned and what the team was like. We discussed my projects and future goals. About a 45 minute call. Two weeks later I was contacted to come in for an in-person interview with both the original HR rep and the engineering manager.

    The in-person interview lasted just over an hour, and was about half interview, half tour. Questions were VERY specific about details of projects I worked on, and some basic HR questions like what kind of work environment I did best in, how I like to be evaluated, etc.

    A week and some change later, I was contacted by the HR rep and offered the position.

    Interview Questions
    • What has been your proudest achievement in your education?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Because I was an entry-level summer intern, I did not attempt to negotiate my salary.
