    Mechanical Designer Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Greene Tweed in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter for the mechanical designer position and a phone interview was set up. The phone interview was basic questions about me, no technical questions what so ever. I was immediately scheduled for an in person interview for 2 days later. The in person interview was with the engineering manager, engineering lead, and a HR representative. Questions were simple from a CAD standpoint and required very little technical answers. Mostly they asked non technical questions about previous experience and interaction with the customer/vendor.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Greene Tweed.

    Interview Details

    I was not looking for a job when I got a call from their internal recruiter. The position was for a remote site (HQ is in Kulpsville, PA) so I had a number of phone inteviews and in the end was flown to PA for an in person interview. The interview style was conversational in nature and pretty easy to pass. They were looking for cultural fit and managerial courage to address hard situations that existed at the time.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't find any of the questions to be odd, out of line, or particularly difficult. As mentioned, the style was conversational during both the phone and in-person interviews. They were doing the Calper test for all employees at the time. But I don't believe they are doing that anymore.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was offered more than I asked for. Pretty straight up and easy.

    Rotation Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Greene Tweed in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Found Greene Tweed at a college engineering career fair. Had an initial interview the next day. A week later received a phone call to setup an on-site interview. They flew me to the location (contact that handled travel bookings was very nice and helpful) for a second interview, which consisted of a technical assessment, panel interview, and meeting with a current rotation engineer. Technical assessment was focused on one of their products given characteristics of the material and the conditions it would be exposed to. Panel interview consisted of 4 people, each from a different aspect of the company (HR, Engineering, Manufacturing, etc.). Panel interview started with personal experience questions and then a review of my solution to the technical assessment. Overall the people I met with were very nice and the company seemed to have a good opportunity to develop an entry level engineer into a valuable team member through the rotation program. I did not receive an invitation for a third interview, thanked them for the opportunity to interview, and asked for some feedback to better prepare myself for future job searches. No response.

    Interview Questions
    • The technical assessment wasn't too bad in my opinion. I don't care for the repetitive "give me an example when..." questions. Having impressive examples for those types of questions was probably the only "tough" area of the interviewing process.   Answer Question

    Engineering Rotational Program Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Greene Tweed in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with HR rep was pretty easy, just a lot of "tell me about a time when... blah." (which everyone obviously makes up) Then they flew me to Houston for an interview with about 3 engineers and another HR rep. Right before that they had me take a test on this valve system which was pretty tough because I had never seen the stuff before. The first part of the interview was going over that test, explaining how you got to your answers. Then they had me explain everything on my resume and how it will help at their company. Then they went on to the "tell me about a time when... blah" questions again.

    Interview Questions
    • Going over the test was very difficult. They gave me absolutely no feedback during my 20 minute explanation to whether I was solving the problems correctly, which was quite terrifying.   Answer Question
