    I have been working at Piper Aircraft

    Pros

    Dedicated employees
    Ability to speak one's mind
    Opportunities to make yourself useful beyond your job description

    Cons

    Disconnect between departments
    Resistance to change
    Not a monstrous parent company to dump lots of money into development

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders make change happen. They don't force it, but they also make it clear that it is inevitable. Otherwise, there is only leadership in name, no more than mere managers of the existing org. That's not going to grow a company or attract certain eager employees

    Engineering(Fall) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vero Beach, FL

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Piper Aircraft in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through their website and got a call within 2 days to set up an interview. The interview was pretty short and standard. Mostly went through my resume and one or two standard questions (describe yourself, etc). I was also asked a specific technical question on the refrigeration cycle ,which was listed on my resume (so be ready to talk about specific things on your resume), though I do not think I was going to be working with that at all. The job itself was not explained at all. The engineers I interviewed with over the phone seemed to be in a hurry as the interview only lasted 15 minutes. I did not think I would get an offer due to the short interview and the lack of explanation of what I would be doing there but within 2 days I got an offer and was giving two more days to accept/decline.

    Reasons for Declining

    I got a better offer from a different company. Also, the interviewers were not very welcoming and did not take the time to explain the job.
