Navigation Information Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Jeppesen Sanderson in February 2012.
Interview Details – I was hired into this position internally after a year with the company in another asset. The interview process was disjointed and confusing, the position itself and the requirements of it were not well explained nor were the expectations of management or the limited promotional potential. Compensation was never discussed and in general discussing compensation with fellow analyst is heavily discouraged. I walked out of the room having been questioned for an hour by 6 people who never identified themselves and never explained how any of the questions might pertain to the position. Upon being offered the position, I initially turned it down because I was mistaken about the offer itself. "Navigation Information Analyst" is a catch-all term used internally to represent a wide variety of positions.

Manager At Jeppesen Sanderson Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Jeppesen Sanderson in May 2013.
Interview Details – Received a call from the HR recruting specialist to set up interview for the following week. The interview was a panel with the position's direct reports and then 2 others that would be peers from different departments but would work together closely. The interview lasted just about an hour. They had their set list of questions and then it was opened up for me to ask questions. They seemed to be more behaviorial type questions rather than job functionality specific. I was told I would hear from HR by the end of the week if I made it to the next round. I was called by a panel member 2 hours after interview to come in for a 2nd interview...scheduled for a week later. Again the 2nd interview was panel style with a peer to the position from another department and then from what would have been a direct report to the position. This was towards the end of the day and one of the panelists kept looking at her watch from about 5 minutes after the interview started, so it was apparent she had other things on her mind and this was more of an inconvenience. It was stated by one of the panelists that there was one other interview the next day and I should hear something by end of day if not end of week. There was no call from HR or the panelist with an offer or rejection. I found it a little suspect with a company that size with a multi-layered HR department wouldn't even do a rejection call or letter, especially after making it to the final round. That lead me to the conclusion if they do not respect potential employees making it that far in the interview process...how much support or respect is there for employees?
The receptionist was friendly and the majority of the employees interviewed with were nice. But I was put off by the constant watch looking and not paying attention during the interview when it was time to ask their question.
