    Senior IT Postion Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Great Neck, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at First Quality (Great Neck, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process dragged on for 2 months and included online personality test, multiple phone interviews and multiple in person interviews. All of the actual interviews were very relevant to the position and I enjoyed meeting the people, however, communication after interviews was extremely inconsistent especially from the corporate recruiters in South Carolina who wouldn't keep you updated on the hiring process or return emails. It almost felt like the recruiters and hiring manager weren't in sync with one another. Was told by the hiring manager directly that I would definitely hear back from them within 3 weeks and despite 5 weeks passing and no response to my thank you email, radio silence. Was very disappointed in the lack of communication and respect for the time I dedicated to multiple interviews. I was extremely interested in the position but my enthusiasm died down as time went on finally to the point where I was no longer interested in the position and informed them of so.

    Project Engineering Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lock Haven, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at First Quality (Lock Haven, PA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I first reached out to the hiring manager via email and was promptly replied to. After a few electronic messages back and forth, including a resume submission, we set up a phone interview. This first phone interview was with human resources and was basically a screening to judge communication ability. Afterwards, another more comprehensive phone interview was scheduled with two senior engineers at the company. This went rather well and I was invited for an on-site interview within two weeks. The on-site interview comprised of two rounds with three or four people in each round. As with the phone interviews, the first round was more personnel related and the second round was technical. I was offered the position within the week.

    Interview Questions

    • They made sure that you knew what you were talking about technically. Since this is a manufacturing business, know-how with machines and related terminology is a huge help. The usual questions regarding strengths and weaknesses were asked, along with previously conquered challenges, etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate.

    Too long a process. One must go through an initial phone interview. Then an interview with HR and all the staff managers of the plant, the head of operations and the head of the facility. Then they all get together, compare notes and make a decision.

    There was no room for negotiation.
