Graduate Electronic Engineer Interview

Graduate Electronic Engineer
Greenford, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ultra Electronics in February 2014.

Interview Details – The first stage was a CV and cover letter.

I was called for an phone interview within 2 weeks of applicaitons.

Phone interview had standard competency questions:

Why do you want to work for Ultra

Tell us a time when...

I can't remember the other questions

Interview Question – Most of the questions were not difficult as such,

This was my first interview so I was nervous and froze at times.

Also it is not a race to answer the question quickly, it is ok if you take a minute or two to think of an well thought out answer!!

Human Resources Interview

Human Resources

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Ultra Electronics in February 2009.

Interview Details – Spoke with a recruiter who wouldn't even tell me the name of the company he was with and felt that was very weird? How can you interview someone and make them wait 2 weeks to find out with what company? It was very odd, I kept getting the run around and eventually took another position. After I accepted a position elsewhere, company contacted me and wanted to hire me ASAP?
