    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at T. D. Williamson.

    Interview Details

    First step was a phone interview with the recruiter. He then sent me a technical writing test that included MS Word formatting and a few images to arrange into instructions. I was then called into an onsite interview. I was first given a tour of the facility, then I sat down with four people to begin the interview. I was asked to prepare a PowerPoint presentation on my skills and qualifications. Then I was asked typical interview questions.

    I interviewed through a recruiter - interviewed at T. D. Williamson in February 2013.

    A company recruiter contacted me after finding my resume posted on line.
    We setup a time and did a pretty easy phone interview and they asked the typical questions about what I currently earn and what I expect to get. I answered honestly.
    I got a call back a couple of days asking if would still be interested even if they would only potentially after over 10000 less then my current salary. I declined to move on.

    Entry Level Electrical Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at T. D. Williamson in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process starts out with a phone interview that lasted roughly 45 minutes. The phone interview went over everything from HR/behavioral type questions to technical questions and everything in between. After passing this round, there was a face to face interview that lasted an hour. In this interview a lot of what was said in the phone interview was re-hashed, but additional questions were presented. The position was advertised as an entry level position, but the overall impression I got was that more knowledge would be required than what an individual just out of college would be expected to be able to display. Had I passed this round of the interview process, there would have been a 30 minute presentation about myself, education, and skills that would be given to a group of employees/management. I did not make it this far in the interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • No specific question was particularly difficult, but the depth and breadth of knowledge that was expected from the individual seemed quite high for an entry level position. I was asked questions about courses I had taken, what type of experience I had obtained in other positions and how that would apply to this particular position, etc. I understand that there would be multiple tasks that would be worked on, but the impression I got was that the company wanted the future employee to have all of the knowledge right away, and that there would not be any time for any learning curve.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at T. D. Williamson in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    They had an HR rep screen me on the phone before setting up a three hour interview including a tour of the facilities. They had me prepare and give a powerpoint presentation on myself and my career. They asked some technical questions, including to write a function that solves the quadratic equation.

    They didn't make me an offer. Evidently some of them wanted to, but not everyone was on board. I think I could have enjoyed myself there, they seem like great people. Hopefully they find the right candidate.
