    Senior Analyst, Organizational Leadership Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aerojet Rocketdyne (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First was the phone interview with HR, typical HR questions (desired salary, why you should be hired etc.)
    Second interview was in person, the reimbursed cost of travel (I drove but they would have covered a flight as well) and put you in the hotel for the night (I am assuming they would cover two nights if your travel worked out like that but I don't know)
    I had to give a presentation of some past work/experiences that made me qualified for the position in front of some mid-range managers, and higher level engineers. Afterwards I had some interviews with more mid to upper range managers covering the groups I was in and some that weren't covering my group but previously had.
    I got a call 1-2 weeks later offering me the job

    Interview Questions

    • -Past applicable work experience
      -specific questions pertaining to my presentation
      -which group sounded most interesting to me to work in
