    Production Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hexcel in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact: Contacted Hexcel recruiter directly about the Production Supervisor position who stated that he wasn't the recruiter for that area. That recruiter immediately sent application information over to the correct recruiter for the area. That recruiter reached out within a day to schedule a phone interview, which was conducted within a weeks time.

    Phone interview: Consisted of questions focused primarily on work experience (i.e. "describe what you did...", "are you familiar with...", etc.) Also the usual "where do you see yourself in five years" and similar questions were thrown in. Since this location works a DuPont schedule, person must be okay with that. All in all, simple interview, primarily just need to be able to answer questions derived from resume. Following the interview, the recruiter stated that she would know within two days whether an on-site, follow-up interview would be conducted. Two days later she called and stated that a follow-up would be scheduled on-site. Appropriate information for the follow-up was sent via email.

    On-site interview: Arrival at location was followed with wait at guard shack while someone made their way out to act as an escort into the complex. Found that two of the original four scheduled interviewers had someone else sent in their stead and fourth person simply wasn't present. Interview session was conducted in a group setting. Questions were very similar to phone interview with a few derivatives.

    Current Status: After nearly a month following a good on-site interview, no communication has been relayed regarding hiring status - despite efforts on my part to reach out to the appropriate parties.

    Interview Details

    Onsite panel and phone calls. Rather disorganized. Travel was easily scheduled. Some member of the panel interview did not attend. The quality manager showed up 15 minted late, unprepared, and I had to begin my conversation over again.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    From so many interviews it was clear that the managers did not trust the hiring manager's judgment. Not a position I want to be in.
