    I have been working at Esterline full-time (more than 5 years)


    Small company with many projects going on, allowing you to have a variety of work experiences as you move from project to project. Easy-going environment, with plenty of opportunity to make friends.


    Surrounded by rural areas, urban areas are a ways away. Still working to define a career growth path that doesn't involve management (which is limited as far as the number of positions available).

    Positive Outlook

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Buena Park, CA
    Application Details

    interviewed at Esterline in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    1st Interview was with Director of Engineering. While the interview was excellent and a positive experience, the second interview was with the VP. The second interview was, I thought, a positive experience. In reality during the feedback from the headhunter was that I was, "cocky". In reality I have 20 years of experience and they are probably looking for a person with probably less than 10 years and a very junior engineer. I was asked to stay over the Holiday weekend, which I did, despite my previous plans. This has been a very expensive waste of time to interview here. You may choose to, but in the future, I probably will not.

    Interview Questions
