    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    No Offer
    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Barry-Wehmiller.

    Interview

    I met with a recruiter and two project managers for the position. The recruiter explained the job as well as the culture of the company. He was upfront with the cons of the company, which I am glad he was not beating around the bush and was honest. The project manager we also honest and asked about my background as well as describing an average day as a project engineer. Overall, it was a good interview.

    Control Systems/Automation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Modesto, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Barry-Wehmiller (Modesto, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    There were several phone interviews with people who were actually only 8-9 miles away. Scheduling was massed up because they sent information for the interview via email but my email service did not handle or display the information properly. Once we got that worked out, I met one of the interviewers - the one I might potentially be working for - for lunch. The FIRST time I was at the proper restaurant for the appointment and the interviewer didn't show - no phone call saying he was hung up - nothing. Next time we schedule the guys shows on time, we talk, he seems impressed and says he would really like to work with me and will get back to me - then crickets for a month! I try email again - no response. I am not impressed - the entire process was pretty unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were related to whether I was willing to work with younger engineers to educate them and be a resource for them (very much yes on both counts).   Answer Question

    • They ask you what you want to make instead of telling you what the job pays. They're hoping your number is lower than what they're willing to offer, thus saving them money.   1 Answer
