    Applied on line in late December, one week later had a phone screen with the recruiter. A few days later had a telephone interview with the hiring manager and senior BDM. Two days later did a telephone sales assessment, and within a few days was scheduled to fly to Pearland for a number of interviews. Had 4 separate interviews with hiring manager, senior BDM, and 2 senior engineers. Dinner with the sales manager and another senior engineer, then the next morning a final interview with the VP. These guys move impressively fast and was informed of the decision within the timeframe they said. Unfortunately was not offered a position, I think this would be a great company to work for.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Aggreko (Houston, TX) in May 2013.

    Interview

    In my case I had one phone interview with a HR person, and then two face to face interviews. The phone interview was a filter. The HR person was not very helpful when I asked question regarding the job. I was not asked any behavioral question in my face to face interviews. Make sure to have some question prepared....I believe they expect you to do your homework researching the company and the industry.
