I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Capstone Turbine in October 2010.Interview Details
I noticed the position of Application Engineer posted on the website for Capstone Turbine Corporation and in the process completed the application within a few minutes. About a month later I was then contacted by the HR group and then asked to fill out the typical online forms and verifications. Then no response for several weeks but that’s standard operating procedure until I was then contracted to set up the phone interview.
I received the call at the specified time by two members of the engineering department and off we went.

Or you are verifying the proposed application the products will go in to for future use. No real follow up interview by the HR staff just a dear john letter and that was about it.Interview Questions
