    Anonymous Employee in Naperville, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dyson (Naperville, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview very professional and in-depth about your work experience and your fit with the company. Then had 1-1 interview at the call center location that lasted all of 10 minutes. The person doing the interview seemed to not want to be there and could tell he was not interested in talking with me. It was very disappointing.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Dyson (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Overall the interview process went well I was Called by the HR Specialist to have a phone interview. At the end of our discussion she asked to setup an in-person interview. When I got there I interviewed with two people who would be on my team for 30 minutes each. It was exactly 30 minutes and both interviewers seemed rushed to get it over with. A week and a half later I was called to setup a second round interview where I would be presenting a PowerPoint based on a project I was given ahead of time. They basically just want to see how you analyze data. I returned to present and it was roughly 45 minutes. I received a phone call a week later that they went with another candidate.

    The interviewing process was very straightforward, but it's important to be on your toes. My interviewers knew exactly what they were looking for in a candidate. So, if you're the right fit, they'll be able to tell right away. It's important to have some idea of the company culture. They're looking for active additions, not job fillers.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dyson.

    Interview

    I asked if we could do a phone interview because I lived too far away and they were perfectly happy doing that. The guy who interviewed me was new to the company and when I asked what the biggest problem facing the department right now he said that it was that they've hired too many people recently so they lack structure and a lot of people didn't know what to do.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dyson.

    Interview

    The managers all live in a different state so the meeting is usually in a hotel or restaurant. We talked for quite a while going over everything Dyson brings to the table. Bring your A game. My hiring manager was extremely intelligent and always looked you in the eyes. It could be nerve wrecking but not if you go in confident in yourself.
