    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Dyson.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Electrical Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Dyson.

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Dyson.

    Interview Details

    I saw the posting online, emailed about the position. Was advanced to in-person interview; for first interview, met with my prospective supervisor. Then, came back and met with a few other attorneys, but no business personnel, which surprised me a bit. Entire process took 3 months. The interview process wasn't difficult, but it did drag out for a while.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dyson.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Marketing Project Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Dyson in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    As a new college graduate, I was applying for many different positions at many companies. I came across an opening at Dyson and applied directly online. The application was very straightforward - fill out personal information and then attach a resume and cover letter. I applied in early May and did not hear back until early June. I was contacted by a recruiter for a request for a phone interview. I scheduled the phone interview and had a 30 minute conversation with the recruiter - mainly just to gain more information about the company and the position. After the phone interview, I was contacted again by the recruiter to schedule a second round Skype interview with the Head of Marketing. The Skype interview included very generic interview questions (i.e. "Give me an example of when you had to deal with a difficult person." / "How competitive are you?"). After the Skype interview, I was contacted again by the recruiter to schedule a face-to-face interview at the Dyson US HQ in Chicago. The flight was arranged by the recruiter and all travel details were presented in an organized manner. For the interview I was asked to prepare a few insights about in-store Dyson displays. The face-to-face interview started with the Head of Marketing. She gave me a brief case study and gave me 30 minutes to prepare a timeline. I then presented the timeline to the Head of Marketing, the VP of Global Communications, and a Marketing Manager. I really enjoyed the people who interviewed me, and it ended up being painless and straightforward!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dyson in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Telephone interview first. Then emailed a document for review. The document required a technical report, completing questions and design suggestions.

    Very polite telephone manner. Spoke to engineering manager.

    After submitting the technical report (which was reviewed by a PhD for final advise on layout and topic content) all contact from engineering manager and also HR was stopped.

    No response to submission. No response to further email or phone calls.

    Very strange indeed.

    I have spoken to a friend who had the same situation of being ignored after a positive telephone interview.
