Mechanical Engineer Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Xerox in September 2011.

Interview Details

Screening interview consisted of basic engineering questions, relating to stress strain curves and related equations mostly. I was also asked a bunch of questions about successes, failures, working on a team, a time when a member on a team wasn't performing, etc. At the end of the interview, he asked a problem solving question about a rope and a clock. It was a good question that I didn't have the "correct" answer for, but the "correct" answer doesn't seem like a great one. Mine was better actually.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Xerox in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    It was an all day thing. There were 8-10 different interviews. The questions were difficult, technical. Very intensive on use of problem solving techniques. Some not too friendly, others were friendly. The hardest interviews of my career. Did end up getting the job but offer was not timely. They did pay for the move.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Xerox.

    Interview Details

    It is an indepth, grueling process. After a phone screen interview you are brought in for a full day interview with 6 to 8 different people asking highly technical, difficult questions. They cover a big range of topics - dynamics, statics, materials, problem solving in general, does, drawings, critical specifications, reliability, etc.
