    Journeyman/Skilled Trades Worker Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Allison Transmission (Indianapolis, IN) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Invited to Orientation/Interview- along with 200 others. Took SIMPLE, EASY 8th--grade High School-Level test. Told TWICE, that I would be called for a second interview(since I knew I scored near 100%). Myself, and 8 others, were NEVER called, but were instead sent a general e-mail saying "we didn't possess the required skills for the job"--a Journeyman's Certificate isn't enough for a Journeyman's job? An ENTRY-LEVEL JOB?? They lie to you, and don't even have the common courtesy to return your phone calls!! Also, they have ELIMINATED PENSIONS for everyone! I would NEVER recommend anyone work for such childish liars!

    Interview Questions

    • #1: HOW OLD ARE YOU?? REALLY?? THEY ACTUALLY ASKED ME HOW OLD I WAS!! THEN TOLD US NOT TO PUT OUR BIRTH DATE DOWN ON THE APPLICATION, AFTER WE ALREADY HAD!! (HALF OF US WERE AT LEAST 50 YRS. OLD). I GUARANTEE: THEY ONLY INTERVIEWED US IN ORDER TO SEE IN PERSON, HOW OLD WE WERE, SINCE IT IS ILLEGAL TO ASK THIS QUESTION.   Answer Question

    The supplied questions each branched into more questions after I had begun speaking about them.

    Data Systems Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Allison Transmission (Indianapolis, IN) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Sat down with three of the employees from the department. Roughly an hour long interview detailing past experience. No funny questions or brain-teasers. Frankly, most of the people in the room didn't seem like they were experienced interviewers, but the department I was applying into is a small, closely-knit department.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe your experience working with software that handles the operations of physical components.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The recruiting company handled the negotiations, and they got me more than I was asking for. So, you could say I was happy about it.
