    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Westport Innovations in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was quick and to the point. First actual interview was in a run down building that they were going to renovate. People were good - but not sure how to take them. Very non-committall. Not very detailed. Received a call in one day to go to second interview. this was with two directors - I walked in - and they told me I had the job so we basically chit-chatted for an hour............

    Interview Questions
    • When they told me I had the job - they wanted questions from me - for the hour and was only prepared for one or two.   View Answer
