    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Aerojet Rocketdyne in May 2017.

    Interview

    Initial interview came about because of an employee referral, however the process was still slow. I get a phone interview within the first 2 weeks and another was scheduled via phone about 3 weeks later. I was out of state at the time. Both interviews were both informational and candidate screenings. Typical interview questions were asked. Each interviewer did want to see an genuine interest in the line of work and position. The three different people I interviewed with were all very kind and personable. Third interview was in person, and because I was out of state at the time their travel desk set up a full travel itinerary for me. I could not be more happy with the accommodations and the trip as a whole. The in person interview was comfortable, and showed genuine interest in me as a candidate. My only complaint is the whole process is going to take 2-3 months until I am on board from the initial interview. This is relatively normal for job searching of course, but it is a big organization that moves slowly start times.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aerojet Rocketdyne (Redmond, WA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Was really quick at first. Phone interview and then scheduled in person interview. Which besides flight issues went well. Everyone seemed really impressed and excited with my presentation and interview. They said to expect to hear something the following week. But it's been 4 weeks almost, and besides 2 polite emails from HR saying they are still in the process of interviewing, I haven't heard anything. Usually I would assume this means you weren't chosen, but I still haven't been told that, just thanks for my patience and we are still deciding.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Aerojet Rocketdyne in February 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the company on my college campus in late February. The interview was behavioral and I was asked many simple questions about past work experiences and the items on my resume. The interviewer was extremely positive, casual, and friendly. After the interview, he told me that my resume and the notes from the interview would be sent to HR. They would review resumes/notes in the upcoming months and help hiring managers find qualified applicants. I was told that this process could take "a very long time", and the interviewer told me not to be discouraged if this were the case.

    About 2 months later, I was called by a member of HR who asked me to clarify my areas of interest and my locations of interest. At the time, I was holding onto a job offer and informed this HR person. That was my last communication with AJR.

    Senior Analyst, Organizational Leadership Development Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Aerojet Rocketdyne (Sacramento, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    HR scheduled interview, with Manager and Director, cancelled it hours later, rescheduled for Thanksgiving week, two weeks later. At time of interview, after changing holiday plans to accommodate the employer, Manager arrived to say HR had failed to tell him about my scheduled interview and that the Director was not on site. While gracious, Manager was clearly clueless as to who I was, was not prepared, and kept looking at his watch the entire time.

    Interview Questions

    • Manager was clearly unprepared, not happy, and under pressure to be somewhere else. Uninterested soft-ball questions. Told later in the rejection by HR how I should be “honored” to be considered. I guess not “honored” enough to confirm the appointment with the Manager or Director or to even have an engaged interview.   Answer Question
