    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at ATS Automation Tooling in February 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process was fun and somewhat informal. I interviewed multiple people at the same time who put me at ease by adding some humor to the conversation. The company has a laid back culture and employees are very much into sports and outdoor activities. They gave me a tour of the factory that was really cool.

    Junior Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ATS Automation Tooling (Cambridge, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    I applied to the position in Cambridge, ON, Canada. The whole process (from applying to getting offer)took about a month.

    First round was a quick phone call, they just want to touch base and know my basic information. In my case I was relocating, they also asked me why I wanted to move.

    Second round was a skype call. I am not sure if this is common because I live far and they did video call instead of in-person. The interview was with the department manager and another higher level manager. Very standard questions. What do you know about the company & about this role. None of the personality questions such as "how do you deal with stress". After that some technical questions about physics, spacial visualization and thermodynamics.

    My suggestion: Do your homework, make sure you know what you want to do and what you are about to step into. Don't come into the interview and not even knowing what the company does.

    Intermediate Mechanical Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at ATS Automation Tooling (Cambridge, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    1) Called for a phone interview with HR department and Engineering Manager. Fairly easy. Little technical but not in depth.

    2) In person interview with Engineering Manager. Brace yourself! It was highly technical. Arrived at the interview room, couple of typical ice breakers such as "how was the drive", " weather is great today" blah blah. A thick question sheet was slapped on the table and I was asked to solve. Spent rest of an hour and a half to solve the questions. Afterwards I was given a chance to ask some questions and it was time to depart. Felt like an exam I swear.

    3) Third interview was with another Engineering Manager and Director of Engineering. It was highly technical again. I was given a design problem to solve and we spent over 1 hour thinking loud and solving the problem. After the design fiasco I was taken on a field trip to the shop floor (Machine assembly floor). Thats' where the machines are assembled. I was taken to a machine and was asked various questions about why certain machine components were in place and what I think the purpose for each is. And can I suggest to do things in a different way, and why?

    After that it was time to say good bye. With tears in my eyes and heart full of sorrows I walked out with the hope to see again.

    It ddn't end so doomy and gloomy, I was actually hired and still working. Just felt like I should mention this to lighten the mood a little ;)

    Interview Questions

    • In the first interview I was given a whole exam sheet full of questions about statics, dynamics, strength of materials, machine design principles and etc.   1 Answer
    • Second interview was about problem solving in the white board for over an hour   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ATS Automation Tooling (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Applied via school portal. Interview was straight forward, and was with one of the senior engineers. As such, not too much on the HR side of things. Interview began with him asking if I had any questions, and then questions about my background (he just went through my resume).
    Afterwards, there were just a bunch of technical problems, involving basic physics, spatial reasoning, and some real life cases to analyse.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really. Everything was pretty standard. Goofed up on one of the case studies, though.   Answer Question
