    Sound and Vibration Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aggreko (London, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I had two interviews and the position was in Scotland. The first interview was by phone and it looks the interviewees did not have enough information about the position themselves. It looks consultants were doing all sound and vibration tasks.

    After long time delay, they informed me that they are very much interested to going forward with second interview.
    Their arrangements for the second interview was very poor.

    The second interview questions was actually related to the problems that they had in the company regarding to sound and vibration issues.
    Although, they had a principle engineer but I do not believe he knows that much about the topics based on the questions that he was asking me after answering their questions.

    In general, I found that they do not have very much information in this area and all the work had been done with consultants. I felt they just want to have this position open and get many information from the applicants as all the questions were technical regarding to the problems that they had in their machines or environment

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Aggreko (Pearland, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    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.

    Rental Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Iberia, LA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Through a staffing company in Louisiana.. The interview was fine, they all were nice.
    I got "hired" started "working" 1 week later... "Training" lasted forever. We were left alone in a room by ourselves for 2 days not knowing what to do... People are rude except a few very sweet women. Management is the worst Ive ever seen in my life. How did they get to those positions. No communication rude and egocentric... Bunch of crazy women. Without a valid reason i got let go after 7 days in the actual job after having wasted over 8 weeks in Training.

    If I could give this company a -10 I would glady do it.

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME with these jerks.
