    Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Underwriters Laboratories.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was with the hiring manager via phone. She asked a few behavioral questions: teamwork and leadership. The next interview was with 2 project managers. There were around 8 behavioral questions ranging from leadership, teamwork, problem solving, and pressure questions. Each question had several parts, so I had to keep asking them to repeat the questions.
