Quality Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Mitsubishi Power Systems in June 2013.
Interview Details – The process began when a former coworker, current MPS employee asked me for my resume. HR called me and set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. The interview was supposed to last 15 minutes. It lasted 75. Immediately after the phone interview HR called back to set up a plant visit and face to face. That interview was a panel interview with the manager, two team members and a support person.
The interviews were based off of the information on my resume. Explain this role, this skill, how proficient you are with this tool. How often have you encountered this type of difficulty. I was asked what could my previous employer done differently to be more successful? And what was my crowning career achievement?
Interview Question – The most difficult question(s) were during both interviews where the hiring manager identified and exploited a skills weakness. I did not have the proficiency in one area that he was looking for and when he realized it, he began asking questions about them. View Answer
