    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call a few days later asking me to come in and take a weld test. I had never welded flux core before and a friend of mine said they didn't use gas. i went in to take the test they put you into a welding booth and let you play with some scrap for a few minutes after a few minutes i asked the tester why all my welds were coming out porosity he said they do in fact use gas. after that the test was easy he asked me to weld a vertical up weld which i did i received a call back after the holidays were over telling me to come in and do paperwork as well as my start date.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Trinity Industries (Dallas, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I had a great but brief 30 minutes screen with HR. They very quickly decided they wanted me to come in for a 4 person 5-hour interview. I had plenty of time to prepare. The 4 people were friendly, asked good questions, let me ask most of my questions. 2 of the people were very rushed. They didn't make me feel very important.
    I asked if there were any reasons whatsoever that I would not be considered for the next round, and all interviewers "couldn't think of any." I had good feelings about the interview and expected to be called for the "final."
    The very next day, HR called and told me they liked me but wanted someone with a particular industry experience. This had never come up as an issue before, and the interviewers even seemed to downplay it.
    I do not currently have good feelings about the company doing this to me and taking me away from other activities related to my job search. They essentially wasted 2 weeks of my time.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were good, and most were standard. The more difficult questions were boiling down certain aspects of the job in 3 or 5 specific points. That is "List 5 things that product managers must do." This is not a tough question, but can be difficult without any true environmental context. However, my answers were solid and seemed to fit what the interviewer expected.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Trinity Industries (Dallas, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    People seem great to work with and that they place a high value on being able to get along with their team members. Interview was not particularly rigorous and almost none of it focused on skill set or typical interview questions. Second interview was at a bar over drinks. The company is very big on creating loyalty to team.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Trinity Industries (Clinton, IL) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Waited over an hour before had interview in which I wasn't asked any questions....the interviewer just rambled on and on about himself. Wanted to also interview for another position but was advised to wait to see how first interview went and then if I didn't get that position then I could interview for the other. Well, I didn't get the first job and then was informed that the second position had already been filled. All this within two days of my first interview. I feel the HR individual screwed me out of any chance of working for Trinity.

    Interview

    The hiring process is through a local agency. I received a phone interview from manager within the company. Then a couple of days later, was called for a face to face interview with four managers (30 mins each). Still haven't heard back from local agency about weather or not I got the job or not, it's been 1 week. Oh well.
