Manufacturing Engineering Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Husqvarna in May 2013.
Interview Details – I first discovered the job opportunity on JobMate. JobMate is a university based job searching program for university students. I found the link and applied for one of the available openings. I was contacted by someone who works at the career center to schedule an interview. After the fairly simple on campus interview, the company contacted me shortly after to schedule a plant tour with the remaining candidates and have a second and final interview. We toured the plant first and then individually were interviewed. About a week later, I received news that I got the internship.
The internship has given me real engineering experience that I needed. Work is different everyday. Some days its designing and implementing something in its entirety for assembly line operations. Typically as an intern, your work involves facilitating and helping engineers with project based work. Depending on how advanced you become, some projects are your responsibility completely.
A typical work day could include designing something and having it fabricated or made. Depending on your training, you could learn how to run and use the WaterJet. Excel work is a big part of the job as well for Work Instructions, Process Flow Diagrams, and PFMEA's (Process Failure Mode Effective Analysis).
Communcation sometimes is not very good within the company but overall as an intern, this is not a bad place to pick.
