Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer

Interviewed at W.L. Gore

Interview Details – On campus recruiting lead to an on campus interview. There was a group panel company introduction session after being called to setup an interview. There was food and the attendees were extremely relaxed. We got a brief presentation on the different divisions of Gore and how the company works. The session opened up to questions, but the session did not move quickly and I had to leave for class before I could talk to them one on one. The interviewer was nice and the questions were rather standard behavior based questions. Everything was standard.

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at W.L. Gore.

Interview Details – Applied online, was contacted by phone one within two weeks. The phone interview was brief and not very structured. It seemed more of a friendly conversation, the interviewer started by telling me about the company, asking a few questions along the way. I could tell the individual was very excited to work there and enjoyed it. Then we went over my resume and a little about my current job/work responsibilities. Then the interviewer set up an onsite interview date, set for less than two weeks away.
The onsite interview was relatively short. There were three interview groups (two contained three people, one contained two people), each session taking 45-50 minutes. All the interviewers wore name tags, so remembering names was not part of the difficulty.
After it was over they had a tour with a local Realtor to show the prospective employee the area. No tour was given of the facility itself.

Interview Question – The reoccurring theme of the interview was about testing. A little bit of background, the products being made at this facility were medical devices, so of course the quality must be very high. If a product has a flaw it could contribute to or cause major health problems. So, in each group, the question was asked "How much testing is enough?" or "How many times would you test it before being satisfied?"
... a difficult question to be answered.

Interview Details – (2) phone interviews. First was with HR, asked several behavioral interview questions and she made it clear she was filling out an on-line form for the hiring manager. Hiring manager then called back a few weeks later and continued on with more behavioral questions. They were clearly interested in a cultural fit.

Newark, DE

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at W.L. Gore in January 2009.

Interview Details – I was flown over to DE and was interviewed by a handful of people.
The funny thing was that after I was offered a position, I was flown again for a 2-day house-hunting trip.
They then asked me to stop by, and I met with 5-6 more people. The meeting felt like an interrogation, although I was already given the position.

There was no room for negotiation at my level, although there is a reason- their benefits are very good. When I left, I had accrued less than a few shares of their private stock, which totaled to close to $20K!

Interview Question – "We can't tell you what you will be working on-are you willing to accept that?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I would try to negotiate non-salary items along with salary items, like vacation, tuition reimbursement, relocation package. My relocation package was quite generous, and is mainly handled by a contract agency.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at W.L. Gore in September 2012.

Interview Details – Was interviewed by 6 people in 2 person teams and given a tour and lunch. It took a total of 5 hours. Questions were mostly behavior based. Some were more technical and theoretical. They asked question about working on teams and mentoring. They also did a lot of talking and asked alot of questions about how you would fit into the "lattice" organization. Mostly about being self-motivated and not shying away from seeking out information from other associates.

The interviewers were friendly but I would say that they were a bit home grown. They seem to have their own language at Gore about processes and expect others to understand what they are talking about. Needed to ask a lot of questions in order to find out what information they were looking for.

Interview Question – Tell me about stability?   View Answer
