    Professional setting. Very informative meeting. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Interview session was engaged in more self disclose type of conversation rather than the standard "tell me about a time when" type of Q/A.

    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Barry-Wehmiller in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the corporate recruiter which went well and he set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. At the end of the interview the hiring manager pretty much said it was a no go because my recent experience was in designing electrical panels while they were looking for someone with construction and consulting experience. It was a fair point except that it was obvious in my resume so why even bother to have the interview? Not to mention, I was interviewed by a mechanical engineer who was not familiar with my field at all.
    Recruiter contacted me after a few days and was very helpful in looking at other opportunities within the company.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Barry-Wehmiller (Portland, OR) in January 2018.

    Interview

    After almost three months of back and forth, they called me in for an interview. The HR rep had no clue of how to use the Outlook calendar; he missed multiple phone appointments he had with me. Emails and communications with him involved bad grammar, bad spelling which gave me a bad impression of the company. The interview date finally arrived. It was Long, boring and overkill. The interview involved multiple engineers coming in and out of the conference room asking me pretty much the same thing over and over. I was there from 8 am to 12 pm. They said that their impression was positive and that they wanted to hire me, They were going to run a background check and degree verification., but it didnt get to that. I called to follow up on how the process was going , just to learn that the position was "closed". Who knows what happened and honestly, dont care. Good thing I didnt leave my perfectly good job for this big unknown of a company.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barry-Wehmiller (Columbus, OH) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Two phone screens, one face-to-face and a lot of waiting. I sent a resume in November, did the first phone screen in December and a face-to-face in January.

    I got the impression they wanted to hire people who could bring in business right away. You know somebody who worked with P&G last year and can make a call to do work for them. The office was nearly empty. Every engineer I met said they were working for companies they'd work for in the past. There were maybe 5 engineers in a billet for 20.

    Once I had a face-to-face nothing happened until March when, after several calls, they said they were not interested: "We're pursuing other candidates at this time."

    Bottom line: unless you can land a contract that they can take over you won't get an offer.
