    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Irving, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Flowserve.

    Interview Details

    Very unorganized interview process. It is an embarrassing process having candidates return four and five times to interview with 10-12 people due to the inability for hiring managers and leaders to make a decision. They string people along and make candidates take full days away from current careers or responsibilities to wait hours to meet with people once they do often never hear back or receive responded. No planned organized schedule. Unprofessional and embarrassing. Not a culture that cares about time commitments and respect one's personal integrity.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Flowserve in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very laid back. It consisted of a tour of the shop and lunch at a local restaurant. The interview was a combination of personal "get to know each other" talk and unforced questions and answers about the job (career aspirations, qualifications for the job, etc.).

    Interview Questions
    • What is/was your favorite class in school?

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Flowserve in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Six interviews with various managers. Main interview was with the National Sales Manager. Also interviewed with facility managers, Global Sales Director, etc. Had to travel to Houston once. But for the rest of the interviews, the parties traveled to the closest facility to my home. Every person was professional and courteous. The interview questions ran the gauntlet. Lot of questions on technical ability, and "how" I would do the job.

    Interview Questions
    • We need someone who can specify a valve on the spot. Are you sure you can handle this kind of technical requirement?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Straightforward. They first asked what kind of comp would l like, and I gave a high number. They went back and forth very little, and made me an offer at the high number. It's a straightforward as you can imagine.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Flowserve.

    Interview Details

    I was called late May a few weeks after online submission. They set up an interview about a week from then at their Vernon location. Once I arrived, there were three engineering managers and one HR representative. Each manager represented a different department within the facilities: nuclear, commercial, and project management. They offered water and had drawings ready for me to peruse. They also asked if I had a preference on which department to work in. They later contacted me with an offer and sent me a package of forms to fill out. I also underwent a drug test before working.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were behavioral or whether I had experience with their trade. They were very open to my questions regarding the history of the company.   Answer Question

    R&D Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Springville, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Springville, UT
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Flowserve in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Used an outside hiring agency to find me and then interviewed me on site. The interview consisted of four separate meetings with the Direct Supervisor, Project Engineer, Department Head, and HR representative individually. They asked very similar questions. I was asked to prepare to be asked about thermodynamics and fluid mechanics by the HR representative but then was not asked a single thing about it. Instead I was asked very obscure questions about application of data-acquisition techniques and equipment. The interviewers were all very friendly, however, and I did get the job in spite of my lack of preparation on the subject of data-acquisition.

    Interview Questions
    • Specific details on the correct use or application of certain data-acquisition equipment/ techniques.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't attempt to negotiate because it was an intern position and the offer was quite adequate.
