    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Esterline (Brea, CA).

    Interview

    The people I interviewed with were professional. You have to make sure you complete a visitor form completed and submitted to the company prior to arriving at the location. They have a strong visiting policy. If you have a camera phone they place a little sticker on the phone. The interview was focused on the position. Make sure you get there with enough time to park and walk to front desk and not be late to the interview.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Buena Park, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Esterline (Buena Park, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions
