Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Parker Hannifin (Irvine, CA).

Interview

Lengthy process. Applied online and received an email from Parker recruiter a couple of weeks later. After phone screening, had a phone interview with the hiring manager. Phone interview was basic questions about background. On-site interview was scheduled a few weeks later. Panel interview with 7 people from different departments, behavioral questions and technical questions. Friendly team but if you are not prepared, be ready to bomb the interview. Personally interview went really well, but they give priority to internal applicants.

    Interview

    Lengthy process that had multiple interviewers....Could have be streamlined significantly and had more standarization. The offer was very formalized and clear, however the questions were not streamlined between interviewers.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Parker Hannifin in December 2010.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a revruiter, a phone interview was set up. Phone interview took 95 minutes, with typical experience questions. Then a panel interview with plant tour, panel interview asked ecperience questions, ethics questions, and situational questions Interview took 150 minutes. Then was scheduled for a follow up interview, for a second position. Second panel interview took 120 minutes, with typical situational questions and a few experience questions. Was then given a skills and problem solving questionaire, along with a set of 12 essay questions. A research firm handled the skills and problem solving analysis. All in all it was a pleasent atmosphere, relaxed panel with rotation for questions, a few questions not on the set of questions, meaning the panel had a few specific questions of their own. Situational questions were pretty straight forward, I didnt feel like I was ever taking the wrong path in answering them.
