    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Westinghouse (Cranberry Twp, PA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Found a job online at company website and submitted application. Within a few days, a company "recruiter" called for a phone screening (30-45 minutes) and set up an interview for one week after the call.

    During the interview, there were approximately 8 other candidiates being interviewed at the same time, although for various positions (we were told it was not a competition - there were enough openings). Not all candidates were interviewed by the same interview teams. This process took about 2 hours total.

    I was not interviewed for the job I applied to online. Instead, I was interviewed for three differenent positions and departments within the company. The strategy was billed as "we want to hire good people that fit the organization, then try and put you in the best place to succeed."

    We were told that we would hear back within two weeks. I heard back within several days with an e-mail offer and had one week to accept or reject the offer.

    After making some phone calls to potential supervisors and HR, the offer was accepted. A packet of information was sent with paperwork and drug screening. Once I passed the drug screening and background check, the offer was official and a start date was determined.

    Overall, the process went a lot faster than I had expected (a little more than 1 month from initial application to finalized offer and start date).

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were fairly routine - nothing out of the ordinary or unexpected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I attempted to negotiate vacation time, but was unsuccessful.

    I attempted to negotiate base salary, but was unsuccessful.

    I attempted to negotiate a signing bonus (since there was no relocation or recruiter fee) and was successful.

    Ultimately, it never hurts to ask.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Westinghouse (Cranberry Twp, PA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    Had an initial interview with a HR rep. Nothing surprising there. I was then flown out for a one on one interview with a manager. I was given a list of possible questions ahead of time and all the questions came from that list. Pretty normal questions. "Tell me about a time that you did this or that...".

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They offered me X. I said, "I have an offer from another company for X + Y. They called back 5 minutes later and gave me X + Y.
