Manufacturing Engineer Trainee Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at RBC Bearings in July 2011.
Interview Details – One on one interview with an HR rep. Typical first interview questions (tell me about yourself, what's your greatest strength/weakness, etc.). Seemed to have a negative opinion right off the bat by questioning my college choice (a UC school which doesn't have as much "hands-on" learning as they would like) among other things, but I think that was more to see how I would respond to criticism. Overall there were 6 people who were brought in to interview for one position, and I was told that there were other more qualified candidates.
Interview Question – If you could have any job in the world, regardless of pay, what would it be and why? Answer Question
