    Approves of CEO
    Approves of CEO


    Great pay
    Competent colleagues and management
    Strong work ethics
    Flexible hours (for salary)
    Financially sound and stable


    Ruthless in layoffs (3 layoffs in 12 months)
    Corporate office dictates how things are done in individual divisions
    Constantly changing priorities making it difficult for employees to focus on their work (partly due to resource constraints)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to seek new opportunities. Need to separate between Sales & Product Management so that the focus is there between getting new business as well as satisfying current customers. Get rid of the month-end 'meet the sales target' mentality. If we want to improve, we should continue to do that every week, not just during the last week of the fiscal month. All in all - great job!

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Everett, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at TransDigm (Everett, WA) in November 2009.


    Overall was a good experience. Had a call with the HR representative then a call with one of the managers and then an on-site interview. It was almost a day long interview process where you get the chance to meet different people from the different departments you will interact. Most of the questions where behavioral, scenario based and experience related questions. They focused on my experience from college and the fit for the culture of the company.

    Interview Questions


    No major negotiation from my part. Good advice would be to conduct research on similar position with similar experience and background and don't shy away from negotiating other benefits like vacation.
