Engineer Intern Interview

Engineer Intern

The process took a day - interviewed at Milliken in February 2011.

Interview Details – I meet a rep. from Milliken at a career fair and then was contacted a few weeks later by phone. The HR manager was very nice and welcoming and invited me to come down to the plant and talk to some of the lead engineers and plant manager. It was very relaxed, the engineers basically talked to me about the company, the changes they have had the past few years. There were very few questions directed to me and was not like a typical interview. I believe they wanted to make sure I was social, eager to join the team and could interact well with other employees. After speaking to the first engineer three other engineers took me out to lunch so we could discuss any questions I might have. The interview was very relaxed and was extremely helpful to insure that I would want to work at the plant.

Interview Question – Why would you be interested in working in a textile company?   Answer Question
