    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at SPX.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and talked to them at a booth at my career fair. Had an on-campus interview the next week and that went really well and connected with the recruiter and was then invited for the final on-site interview which was pretty tough. I flew to their facility and I arrived the night before and had dinner with managers and people whom I would be interviewing with the next morning. The next morning we had HR presentation and then I had 2 and a half hours of panel interviews with maybe 10 people total. I just sat in a room and people rotated in and out every half hour. It was tough because one would write and another person would maybe look at me and it was hard to sort of give both people attention at the same time whenever one person asked a question. All STAR questions of course and every single one I was asked that day was unique, so we're talking about 40 questions, so get those situational answers ready because they all compare notes after you leave and want to have different answers even though some questions could overlap. We then went out to lunch with some newly hired engineers and then had a tour of their plant and I flew back to school.
