Engineering Interview

Engineering

I applied online - interviewed at Textron in October 2013.

Interview Details – It was a rather quick process. The interview was speed dating style. You came in with a group of people and you were directed to certain rooms to interview with three different people. I spoke with three engineers, I know some others ended up speaking with engineers and people in HR.

Interview Question – no hard questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I got a call a few hours after my interview telling me I'd gotten the job. I received and e-mail with a contract with in a week.The pay scale works on experience; those going into their senior year make more than these going into their junior year.

Supply Chain Interview

Supply Chain

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Textron in August 2010.

Interview Details – The hiring and interview process was very lengthy as it was 90 days between the application and the offer letter. One of the unexpected processes was the need to supply 7 years of income verification from my IRS returns. There were 4 different interview scenarios over a 2 month period. Future applicants should take detailed notes on the players as three of the interviews were done over the phone rather than in person.

Interview Question – There were not any difficult or unexpected questions. There were 3 different interviews composed of different members of the department, but nothing strange.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They were not a bit negotiable. There was a mid-point of the pay range for the position and they hit it and would not budge. The only are of flexibility would have been a start date.
