    Application

    interviewed at Esterline (Buena Park, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    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

    • The most difficult question asked was the time old question of which 2 would you choose, Cost, Quality or Schedule.   Answer Question
