    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Alstom Power (Hornell, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    First I had a phone interview for 20 minutes, this lead to a face to face interview roughly 2 weeks later. Did not get a chance to walk the facility, this could have been due to the amount of PPE (hard hat, safety shoes, etc.) Also, at the time they need to quickly staff up for the project. One other important point, have to listen very good due to company having lots of manager's that are not from US. Can be difficult understanding various dialects.

    Buyer/Procurement Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Alstom Power (Windsor, CT) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was set up through the hiring agency but conducted on-site with Alstom employees and managers.

    It was one session with 4 or 5 people in the room. A couple managers I would be working for, a couple HR people and an SME.

    The interview was pretty casual, more like a conversation about my experiences and how I felt like they could be used to help Alstom. It allowed for a lot of questions and answers back and forth which was nice.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Alstom Power.

    Interview

    This is a very lengthy and confusing process for this company. I applied for the position in early November. I was contacted by HR regarding my application on the Friday after Thanksgiving. I was invited to the office for an interview 2 weeks later (mid-December). I didn't hear anything from anyone after the interview, until the end of January. I received an offer a month later, and started working until the end of March. So the whole process took 4+ months. Good thing I was already employed elsewhere!

    Negotiation

    There is little to no negotiation. I managed to negotiate an additional week of vacation.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Alstom Power (Richmond, VA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed by other knowledgeable engineers and not just an uninformed HR guru. My boss first interviewed me, then followed by one of the engineers. It made the experience feel real, like they wanted to find the right person to do the work.
