    Interview

    Submitted cover letter & resume online via Airbus web portal after having researched the company and carefully studied the job description which resulted in seeing good match with my profile and an very interesting role.
    Received call from recruiter which lead to invitation to face to face interview with 4 people.
    Arrived ahead of time to the interview but had to wait until approx. 30 minutes after scheduled time for someone to meet me.
    Did not feel that the face to face interview vent well and was told by HR manager to call her the next day, which I did and left a voice mail. Made follow up calls without any progress until recruiter reached out to me and said that they had selected other candidate.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Airbus (Dulles, VA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Applied after being referred by a colleague. Took some time before being asked to answer 4 essay questions. Questions were somewhat open ended and this took considerable time to complete. Nearly another month passed before a short 30 min phone interview. Finally there was a face to face interview at US headquarters with one technical person and one HR person. One person did not make it. I was asked to brief one of my responses to the essay question.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Airbus (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    The application and interview process went smoothly. I applied and about 2-4 weeks later I received a call. After speaking to the recruiter about the job she revealed the job paid in the high 40's which was shocking because the requirements were 6-8 years of experience and an associates/ BA preferred. Aerospace companies typically pay well but this opportunity is below market so I was not interested. They will try to sell you on their benefits but there are other great companies with great benefits that pay market.

    • All questions were pretty standard, be prepared to walk through your resume and know about the company.   Answer Question

    Two interviews: one HR, one with an engineer. The first, HR, was to get to know more about personality and background, and was half in French, half in English (internship in France). Questions were about why I applied, what were my strengths and weaknesses and what experience I had in teamwork.
    Second interview was more technical, with more details about the expectations of the internship. There were some technical questions about Lean, and others regarding skills in implementing macros with VBA.
