    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gulfstream Aerospace (Savannah, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. Waited about two weeks then had a 40 minute interview phone interview with two employees. One who would be my immediate supervisor and the other was in HR. Overall easy interview, no behavioral questions, but because it was an analyst position, a lot of question were asked regarding my previous experience that was in any way relevant to the job. They asked a lot of questions regarding my resume and cover letter so make sure you do a great job relating your experience to the job your applying for.

    Interview Questions

    • Because it was an Analyst position, a lot of question were asked regarding my previous experience that was in any way relevant to the job. What drew you to this position?

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gulfstream Aerospace (Savannah, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Three easy phone interviews led to a more rigorous onsite presentation to senior managers and vetting by peers. Everyone was more than professional, even pleasant. The particular department manager I met with was quite dour and intimidating but still professional. Personally I do not like the presentation format for an interview as the topics given really narrow the focus of discussion but that's what they asked for. If I really wanted the job, I should've spent more time researching successful presentations of this type. I treated the entire experience as a practice interview/exercise as I had no intentions of moving to Savannah, GA, as lovely as it is.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gulfstream Aerospace (Savannah, GA).

    Interview

    I applied online after searching six sigma positions. I then waited several weeks before I was given a call offering up an interview. I drove down, and was reimbursed for mileage and per diem for the days I was down here. It was a 3 person panel interview, had a list of standard questions that they asked round robin style. Then was given a tour of the facility. A few weeks later I was given a call offering the position. I was happy with the salary, but asked for more vacation, which was turned down. I still accepted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gulfstream Aerospace.

    Interview

    The process started with an online app immediately after posting. A month later my status changed to Hiring Manager. Almost two weeks after the status change I got a call from a recruiter to schedule an in person interview which was two weeks out. I didn't have a phone screening which I thought was pretty weird. At the interview you have to arrive early to check-in with security. The hiring manager came out to escort me back to where we were to meet. The interview went well and I was told that there were other candidates to interview, one of them being an internal candidate. Two days later my candidacy status changed to Not Selected. Most likely the internal candidate got a promotion because I was told the other individuals credentials weren't looking to promising. Sooo.. back to the drawing board. Hopefully I can find a similar career opportunity with Gulfstream.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gulfstream Aerospace.

    Interview

    The company wanted specific details on the ability to perform job. Interview was a challenge and I suggest you have documented measures of success prior to the formal interview. The interview was conducted by a panel of employees with support from the human resource department. They did not focus on traditional questions like what are your weaknesses or strengths.
