    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buena Park, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buena Park, CA
    Application Details

    interviewed at Esterline in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    1st Interview was with Director of Engineering. While the interview was excellent and a positive experience, the second interview was with the VP. The second interview was, I thought, a positive experience. In reality during the feedback from the headhunter was that I was, "cocky". In reality I have 20 years of experience and they are probably looking for a person with probably less than 10 years and a very junior engineer. I was asked to stay over the Holiday weekend, which I did, despite my previous plans. This has been a very expensive waste of time to interview here. You may choose to, but in the future, I probably will not.

    Director conducted a telephone interview as to pre-screen me. I was invited to come to a face to face interview a few days later.

    Spoke one on one with the director. Then spoke with a group of people who would become my peers. The next day I was asked to come and meet with people from various other departments.

    The next interview began with me speaking with about eight people who were managers and directors and ended with me speaking with two other peers from a division led by the director that I originally had my one on one interview with.

    An offer was made a few days later.
