Interview Details –
In my 1-1 Interview with the Manager I was asked what was motivating my search, what I knew of Intermec, and what performance metrics I was achieving in recent roles. I was asked how much of the administrative work was I comfortable doing. The small team I would join had a Coordinator, but I would still do a lot of the data-entry and documentation work that might be owned by another resource in larger companies. This can be harder to digest for people used to having a big team of specialists.
I was brought back to meet two peer-level team members who asked about specific work experience I had in similar companies. They also wanted me to compare the culture of different employers, and asked if I liked small or large companies better and why. They asked how much I liked to manage projects and seemed to be looking for my ability to own and drive an initiative to completion, or at least contribute new ideas that could improve process and programs.
The company was not as "conservative" as I expected it and has a simple business casual style. The building in Everett is nice, having a cafe and espresso stand in the center of the building under an atrium ceiling. It's a nice area designed for drop-in meetings and collaboration and getting access to sunshine while you work. Most people work in cubes but not packed in like I have seen elsewhere. Some Managers are even in the cubes, so you might ask to see where you would work if you don’t get offered a tour. There is a nicely equipped Gym onsite which is a bonus because there are very few amenities (shopping, dining, banking, etc.)close by the building.
Negotiation Details – Intermec is competitive with salary and benefits but needs to enhance rewards at the IC level.

Interview Details –
Refreshing! Initial contact came from HR after an on-line app, first email, then phone screen, then appointment w/hiring mgr., also a phone screen. Face-to-face interview followed, preceded with an employment application and directions.
Face-to-face consisted of back-to-back 1:1 interviews. Started with lunch in their company atrium-like albeit plain cafe with someone who would be my peer, followed with another prospective peer, the hiring manager and HR. Good blend of sharing and probing, focus on experience/process and attitude,very candid, professional, friendly... folks I'd really like to work with.
Personal, friendly, professional phone call about a week and a half after the interview from HR to let me know I did not get the job. Found out later by asking from prospective peer what key experience person who got hired had that I didn't.
Typical tech: nice lobby, bland cube farm. Company's experienced a lot of downsizing and restructuring yet provides a good opportunity with right attitude, strong but not overly intense work ethic, and the right boss (also determined later from a former Intermec employee who did not have as good a boss).
Since maintained contact with hiring manager and and particularly with one of my prospective peers.
Tried contacting CEO for an info interview (mid sized company.... CEO has a reputation for being friendly and not overly hierarchical) and got stopped very cold by his Exec Admin. Also tracked one other position that opened and closed w/o hiring, though had to track down the hiring mgr (different group then who I interviewed with) to find out.
Good place to work if you land well (ask some probing questions up front) apply yourself, are flexible and ok that it's not a sure thing long term but can be a worthwhile albeit probably bumpy ride.

Interview Details – Intermec offers a progressive environment indicative of several internal changes at the time of my interview. The representative of the company was personabable yet infomative business interview. They engaged and asked many of the personality based questions and zeroed in on modeling and analysis skills asking for specific examples of modeling projects. What I recall of the interview they sought an applicant with MRP experience. Materical Requirements Planning is common within manufacturing environments. The office was very typical of most financial environments, with ample work spaces and large offices for its business managers and directors. The work culture seemed to promote working smarter and efficently; this would be expected within a manufacturing environment.
