    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at LORD Corporation in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I visited their booth at a campus career fair and applied online. Several weeks later I received a call from HR to schedule a phone interview. It went well and within a week I had an offer. They sent the offer letter by email and gave me a few days to accept. I started right after Thanksgiving. They were great for working around my trimester academic schedule.

    Interview Questions
    • No real difficult questions, just asked what I was interested in doing and a little about my past experience. (internship position, so it was relatively basic.) Asked a little about basic stress/strain curves.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    As it was an internship, I didn't do any negotiating. One benefit that they did provide was a free apartment to the interns.

    Summer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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.

    Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Erie, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed 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.
