    Automation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beloit, WI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Regal Beloit in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed in July 2013. The position I interviewed for was an entry level automation engineering position. The interview process was in three steps. There were two phone interviews and one in person interview with an HR director and an engineering director. The first phone interview was with a recruiting agency. It appears that they outsource their hiring entirely because I did not apply through a contract company. During the entire process I had no ability to contact any actual Beloit personnel. I only was given the phone number of the recruiting company, and it wasn't until my in person interview was over that I received their actual contact information. Scheduling interviews was a somewhat tedious process because the recruiter would have to get my availability, then check with the company's availability, then finally get back to me.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Regal Beloit in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    There process is very unstructured and non standard.

    I was contact via a recruiter to interview with this company. I did my research and looked forward to discussing what their excepted needs were for the position. I was provided a conference call number. This number was incorrect. After scrambling 10 minutes prior to the interview, I finally received the correct information and called in just in time.

    The conversation started with NO discussion or pleasantries. We did "name" only introductions, no titles. There was no explanations of the company status or job needs. I was told, we have your resume, please tell us a little about yourself. A very standard question, which is easily answerable in 2-3 minutes tops. I answered and was told, please provide more about where you worked. I continued for 10 mins, without interruption. As I stopped and said was this enough, I was then immediately asked technical ORACLE questions - pertaining to drop down menus. This was asked by an Indian gentleman with a very thick accent. I was asked additional questions, which I was able to answer well. At this point, the Indian guy told the others he was done and leaving. He left, without saying anything. I was asked additional technical questions by the 2 remaining guys. After 30mins, they were finished.

    I then asked for more information about this company and position - what facilities would be involved. It took them 10 more minutes to explain about their company. Such as they are utilizing LEAN Six Sigma and most people are certified as Green Belts.

    All in all, it was the worst interviewing experience of my career. (This included an interview with an Artificial Heart Manufacturer, where I had to stop the interview with the Dr and say, "Listen it's ok if we do not make a connection here. My goals differ from what your needs are clearly. Thank you for the interview."
