    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Austal in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview was conducted by a 3 person panel. 2 from Mechanical engineering and 1 person from HR.

    The 2 representatives from engineering asked technical questions while the HR person reviewed my work history and asked general questions about what I knew about the company and how I handled certain situations on the job.
