    Recruited through outside company; interview process was fairly quick and painless. First met with the hiring manager, was then brought back in for a second interview. Offer followed within about a week. The entire process took less than one month.

    Account Specialist II Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics.

    Interview Details

    Was interviewed one day and offered position the next. Lowballed on salary which I accepted because I was desperate. In interview process my future supervisor (who had only been there a couple months) never made any eye contact with me. It was strictly HR who ran the show. Later found out there was office politics involved in my hiring and if I had known the whole story and wasn't desperate would have passed on the job.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation phase. Position was advertised as a II/III which was a farce because I was never promoted. Supervisor kept changing the requirements for me to be promoted so I finally gave up. Devious and dishonest.

    Value Stream Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Dealt with a recruiter, so I initially was screened through him. After this, I talked with the hiring manager over the phone. After this, an onsite was scheduled. The recruiter stated to get a book about top-grading since this is what the Crane does. I read the book as it discusses the CIDs interview. Book only costs $15 to 20. Buy it, read it, and you'll do well. Be honest with your answers. It is also funny as they do not top grade as much as they say the do. And they do not hire 'A' players.

    Human Resources Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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

    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.
