    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Emerson (Welcome, NC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed for positions at ASCO in Welcome, NC.
    My first communication was at a career show at my college. I applied online for three positions online. I received an email about two phone interviews with three hiring managers. I called and setup the times. It turned out to be three positions that I was interviewing for.
    After the phone interviews I received an email to setup an on site interview forthe manufacturing engineer position. It was a tour, interview and a trial by fire.
    The trial by fire was three actual issues that popped up during the tour with one of the managers that I would have been working with on the production floor. It showed how fast paced the job is.
    I had a second on site interview with other managers and the HR personnel a couple of days later. At the end I was told that I would have a call back at the beginning of the next week.
    Two weeks later, no call back and seeing a new posting of the same position told me that I didn't get the job.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Emerson.

    Interview

    I was scheduled for an interview immediately but they rescheduled on me twice. I was asked very generic questions and when I asked questions back I was referred to the website although there was no relevance to what I was trying to understand about the position. I was then never contacted back to inform me if there would be a follow up although one was promised. After unsuccessfully attempting follow up contact I came to the conclusion that there was no offer forthcoming.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself. Where will you be in 5 years. Why should we hire you. All generic non relevant questions for a senior executive position.   Answer Question
