    Interview Details

    Very fair and professional interview process. I was initially contacted by one of their HR Recruiters via LinkedIn. The arrangements and scheduling of interviews was very professional. The recruiter was very responsive and communicated with clarity on any next steps. Once I was determined as their #1 candidate the job offer and compensation process was more than fair.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Precision Castparts.

    Interview Details

    First interview was a short on campus interview. I was then sent to one of the manufacturing faciities for a second interview. The interview was 4 hours long and very structured. It included a lot of walking and unexpected bursts of interview questions in the middle of the plant tour. After the interview was over I received an email with a link to take a personality test. Roughly 3 weeks later I received my job offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were very typical interview questions, but they did ask if I made any observations about their current facilities I was willing to share.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They sent a job offer that was exceptional compared to others I have received so there was no negotiation necessary.

    Management Development Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Precision Castparts.

    Interview Details

    Coming from a University that PCC does not recruit from I had to attend a career fair at a neighboring university to get face-time. Step one was an online prerecorded video interview. A few weeks later this was followed by a very informal hour and a half interview on site with an HR representative. A week later I was asked to complete an online personality profile. Next, weeks later, came five half-hour one-on-one onsite interviews with former MDP participants with current jobs from HR to Management. The final step was a quick phone interview with the program manager, this seemed less like an interview, and more a check to make sure I understood the scope and purpose of the program.

    The process was long, but the interviews are not difficult if you have leadership experience, and can provide specific examples of ways you will provide value to the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Do you have a plan for dealing with the unexpected challenges that come with moving to an unknown location?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation of the salary, which was fine, as it is market-competitive.
