    Staff Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at LORD Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I applied online but also knew an employee who worked there. I believe his help and an email from me to my manager are what got HR moving to interview me. I had a short (15-20 minute) phone call with someone from HR during which I scheduled an interview with an engineer in the group I applied for.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at LORD Corporation in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Had a couple short phone screening interviews with HR and one hour long phone interview with two Staff Engineers and the Engineering Manager.

    I ended up not doing an on-site interview after discussing salary/compensation for the position. Salary was significantly less than other offers in the same area for my experience, but LORD was ok with having someone with significantly less experience.

    Anonymous Employee in Cary, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at LORD Corporation in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by HR to schedule a 1 hour phone interview with the hiring manager and another engineer in the department. However, the manager ended up having to leave early that day, so I only spoke with the other engineer. The interview was very straight forward and essentially was about my past experiences and the projects that were listed on my resume. It was a very pleasant conversation and I was told that the next step would be an on-site interview if I was selected.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing unexpected. All questions were about my resume and why I wanted to work for the company.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews with the company for two separate internships. One was a phone interview which went very well, but it was my first phone interview so I found it slightly overwhelming having several people talk to me at once without seeing them. The other interview was in person and was very relaxed. I felt comfortable talking about my experiences and school work.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked why they should hire me for the specific position.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Since it was a summer internship I was offered a wage without negotiation. However, I found the hourly wage to be a good amount so I was satisfied.

I was then invited to interview on site, which consisted of a 30 minute technical presentation followed by Q&A and then several 1 on 1 interviews with other engineers and HR. Questions ranged from technical to more personal experience.

    Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Erie, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Erie, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at LORD Corporation in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    The process was a little confusing because I was not interviewed for a specific position and the HR representative was not able to tell me what job or jobs I was being interview for ahead of time, which made it difficult to prepare. The first interview was a phone interview with 4 people who described multiple job opportunities available. The second interview was with the same group of people, interviewing again for multiple positions. A final interview was held with two individual interviews.
