    I have been working at Urenco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is great, and the benefits package is good. The company is interested in maintaining a healthy work life balance. The site is currently the only facility of its kind in the United States. The international aspect of the company can provide opportunity for travel, and the meeting of multiple cultures.

    Cons

    The location is less than desirable, and the quality of the facility does not represent the amount of money invested in construction.

    Mechanical Systems Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Eunice, NM
    Anonymous Employee in Eunice, NM
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Urenco in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through their website, I received a phone call from the hiring manager a few days later. He gave me an initial quick interview, basically go/no-go screening for an actual interview.
    After that initial phone screening, he scheduled a day for the actual phone interview.
    During the real phone interview he asked me about my background and experience, asked some questions based on my resume and cover letter. He then asked me if I knew about the company and if I had been to West Texas/Eastern New Mexico.
    After the phone interview HR called me a week or so later to schedule a panel interview at their work site. They arranged everything.
    When I first arrived the HR person had not fully set up my visitor badge and this took quite a while to settle. The receptionist was very nice and started a conversation about the job and my background when she saw me looking at my watch. The HR representative was visually frustrated. The escort who also was on the panel for the interview, was very pleasant and joked alot and answered some initial questions, basically giving me a day in the life.
    He escorted me to their work area and introduced me to the other panel members 2 other engineers and the hiring manager. The interview in total lasted around 3 hours and at the end they invited me to lunch.
    Most of the questions were very technical in nature, and pertained to my experience with mechanical design and safety. Only a few at the end were HR type questions like what would you do in a situation that was an ethical dilemma.

    Offer was 28% lower than what I initially asked for, I counter offered at 9% less, and they only came up 6%. At that point what does the HR expect.
