    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Austal (Mobile, AL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted 6 weeks after applying by a recruiter by email. All contact was by email and very mechanical. When I was finally called by a live person for a phone interview very basic questions were asked. I was told I was a good choice for this role, asked when i could interview and told a tentative interview date, pending the interviewer's schedule, and promised a call back in a day or two to confirm. After a week i called and emailed the recruiter repeatedly and got no response. Still waiting for any contact 3 months after the initial application.

    Systems Functional Specialist Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Austal (Mobile, AL) in June 2014.

    Interview

    First you are interviewed by an Human Resources representative. Then you are intereviewed by a panel of Austal employees within the department. They ask some pertinant questions and then off the wall questions such as "why are sewer grates round" Some of them have the superman complex. Not very impressed with interview process, seemed they already had their candidate picked out and were very disinterested.
