    Simulator Technician I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CAE (Whippany, NJ).

    Interview

    The hiring process I must say is very fair. Although nerve wrecking as they all are, if you know your s**t than you shouldn't have a problem. You receive a call from HR for a 1 on 1 interview with whom ever( in my case the lead techs). During the interview they ask you fairly simple things such as: what are certain components, can you use a meter(amm,volt,ohm,..etc), can you read schematics, past experiences, where was your experience acquired, why do you want to work for the company, etc... however your answers wont make a difference if you could care about the interview itself. Which will definitely determine whether you are Bs'ingor not.(Come Prepared). After you get a walk around so you get a feel for the place you know, if you seemed interested enough. Next, you wait another few days for HR to call and schedule a phone interview with the "Head Hancho"' himself. that's where you get into detail on what it is you want out of this place. My opinion is to be honest, these guys hear crap all day from all types of people. What makes you think they wont see yours coming a mile away? Genuine, Firm, Honest, Eager, Hardworking, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CAE (Dallas, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Started with a phone call from personnel, followed by another phone interview with a program manager. General questions and asking my thoughts about teaching. Set up a in person interview with Program Manager and one HR person. Was again asked questions about teaching and how to interact with customers, and did a brief teaching session on a system, I did mine in live, I do believe they allow you to do it on tape. Was easy, not really any pressure at all, I was told to expect an answer withing a couple of weeks, I was offered a position the following day.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CAE.

    Interview

    Basic questions about background and what the job entails. There was a phone call to discuss initial background, than an in-person interview with the Sales Director and an Account Executive. Later on there was a follow-up call from a Regional Manager.

    Reasons for Declining

    This was for a sales position in DFW-

    Was ultimately offered a position, and was initially told there was a much different, more lucrative salary structure but later found out it had changed, and wasn't as lucrative.

    Initial interview for the job began in December 2014, but they didn't offer me the position until the first week in February. Almost 1.5 months of waiting. I think 4-5 weeks from an initial interview, at most, is acceptable.

    I kind of regretted holding out for the position as I lost out on other opportunities and it hurt my finances. Apparently their 2014 salary structure(which was offered in December to me) had changed in FY2015. I was told it had changed, until I was about to start working, so I declined the offer.

    Health Insurance is also sky-high. I wouldn't even consider the insurance costs average for the industry. For basic employee only HMO, the plan is $78 bi-weekly. It's nice to see it offered, but I wouldn't consider it a 'competitive' rate.

    Had the initial salary structure I was initially offered remained the same I would have worked there. I felt mislead about the opportunity. I also gauged the initial start date incorrectly.

    All I can recommend is double-check everything!

    Not sure what the people are like since I didn't get to work with them, the building seemed very nice. It's probably a decent working environment.
