Test Engineer Interview

Test Engineer
Warren, MI

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Jacobs Technology in October 2010.

Interview Details – Jacobs was very responsive and professional about the interview. I applied online after receiving notice via their email list about a position which fit my skills. I received a phone call from their Human Resources department a day or two later, and had my initial phone interview that week. It was followed up by a face-to-face interview the next week. I received an offer a few days after that.

Interview Question – Explain how your previous experience meets the criteria listed in the job description.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiating was very easy. I simply stated where I was right now and what I expected to receive (~11% raise). My requested salary was inline with my experience. After a brief discussion, the hiring manager and program manager agreed.

Systems Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Huntsville, AL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Jacobs Technology in July 2009.

Interview Details – The contact with HR was excellent. I was setup for an interview within 2 days and a benefits pkg was sent to me upon request prior to the interview. The Jacobs staff was great they presented the job and company information in an informative way, allowing me to ask questions at any time during the interview. The work sounded interesting and the work environment was excellent.

My background and experience was reviewed to see how I could fit into the Engineering position. I was also impressed that the Director of the division was present for the interview and offered some good information.

Awaiting an offer soon, I hope.

Systems Administrator IV Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Huntsville, AL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Jacobs Technology in October 2009.

Interview Details – HR setup the interview and instructed me where I would be interviewing. I did not know with whom I would be interviewing with until the moment of the interview. Interviewers did not provide a business card or full name. Emailed HR to get the full name of the interviewers.

Interviewers consisted of two technical personnel that worked on the contract for the position. A questionnaire of technical questions ranging from networking, Windows OS, UNIX OS were asked. Very relaxed atmosphere no feeling of pressure.

Robotic Technician Interview

Anonymous Employee
Clinton, MI

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Jacobs Technology in March 2014.

Interview Details – Met the recruiters at the Michigan Collegiate Job Fair in Livonia. Received an email for an interview a couple weeks later.
The interview was 30min long, no hard questions. Just describing the company work to me, asked me if I was motivated for this kind of work. We talked about a couple projects I worked on in school but it didn't seem to matter too much to them. They were looking with someone who had some kind of engineering background (just school in my case) and who seemed to be a hard worker.

Interview Question – No technical questions during the interview. Just a discussion of a couple engineering projects that I listed on my resume.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The first offer was above what I expected and I didn't negotiate
