Project Engineering Co-Op Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hasbro in March 2011.
Interview Details – After applying for the position through my school job listing database, I was contacted by an HR representative to set up an on-campus interview. I was given a choice of multiple times on a specific day. I was interviewed by two full-time project engineers, each from a different team. The interview was conversational. Not much emphasis was placed on technical skills as was my ability to carry out responsibilities successfully. One of the interviewers was the person who hired me and became my supervisor. HR contacted me the day after my interview and gave me the weekend to make my decision.
Interview Question – What is your favorite part about school at this point? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There were no negotiations since this was a 6-month coop position.
Undisclosed Engineering-related Position Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Hasbro.
Interview Details – Was first contacted by an outside recruiter who then submitted my resume. Next I had a phone interview with an internal recruiter. He called half an hour later than expected with no explanation but was otherwise professional and asked relevant and reasonable questions. After submitting a work sample an interview was scheduled on-site.
The first person, my would-be immediate superior, spent almost the entire hour speaking and asked very few questions. They left a good impression on me. The next scheduled person wasn't in, and I met instead a more senior person in the group. The person was looking at my resume for the first time (judging by the questions) and may not have known I was coming or seen my work sample. The person first spent a good amount of time asking probing personal questions. The person's demeanor was dismissive and impatient, one of the rudest encounters I've had in an interview. At no point was I tested on relevant knowledge or ability to perform.
After sending a thank-you note the next day I received no follow ups whatsoever from anyone. The job posting remained up for several months. It is now down and it's unclear from linkedin whether anyone was finally hired.
Finally, when I wanted to do a post-portem with the internal recruiter three months after interviewing, they were already working elsewhere.
Interview Question – Mostly it was the lack of any relevant questions - nothing even along the lines of "do you know product/technology so-and-so". Answer Question
Pre Press Production Artist Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
