    I worked at Trek Bicycle

    Pros

    While electronics are not the mainstream part of this company, everyone always treated me like I belonged. It was such a positive environment that it was almost surreal. The management was structured and even when the team was under pressure to finish a product, the atmosphere remained positive.

    Cons

    The pay was low even for an internship. Being a small company there was small talk drama between conflicting personalities, but again it felt more like the type of sass that two siblings would share because the working environment was so relaxed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving forward, management has made a huge steps in the right direction I think they just need to keep their wave of motivation in motion.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Trek Bicycle.

    Interview Details

    First started off with a phone interview with the person from HR who was in charge of hiring this position. She asked a lot lot lot of questions about my current positions. One tip is to only put things in your current job descriptions on your resume that pertains to the position you are applying for. To be honest, after getting off the phone I thought for sure I was not going to get another interview. Questions were a bit odd and a lot of concern about my current position and what it had in common with what I would be doing at Trek.

    I received a call 3 days later for a second (in person) interview. I did a lot of research on the company prior to attending the second interview. The day of the interview I showed up 20 minutes early... and was brought back right on time. I received a tour of the amazing facility by the same HR representative I spoke to during the first interview. I then met with 7 different individuals that I would be working with. They all focused on asking me about concerns that they had with how my current position would relate to the position at Trek. Do not be afraid to address concerns they have. I think it was great that they were able to address these concerns right away, so I wasn't shocked later on. After several hours of interviewing they offered me to stay for lunch, which I decided to pass on- looking back I should have taken them up on the offer. After leaving I felt confident that I blew the interview out of the water!

    I followed up with thank you letters to each individual that were hand written and personalized. I had not heard anything by the date they promised (2 weeks later)... and thought that maybe I did not get the position. I emailed to HR representative to follow up and was informed they were still making a decision. 4 days later I received an email from the director who asked me to address some concerns she had with my previous positions. We set up a third interview on the phone so I could chat through some of her concerns and I asked her several follow up questions about what she wanted from me and how her concerns may hinder my role.

    The next day I was offered the position. Trek goes through this intense interview process for a good reason. They want to make sure they have the right people for the right positions. I came in the the position knowing how to avoid some of the concerns they had, which was great and I learned what was expected of me within the roll.

    BE YOURSELF- ADDRESS CONCERNS- BE GRATEFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO INTERVIEW
