    Flight Simulator Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CAE.

    Interview

    Interviewed with HR and said they'd pass me on to the hiring manager to do the next interview. I called next week to follow up and she said he still wanted to look at more resumes. I checked two weeks later and the position was closed. I thought with my military avionics electrical experience and BS degree at an accredited state university that I'd be qualified for a second interview.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CAE (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Was greeted by the HR Generalist and brought to the Interview Room, there I meet with 2 of the team. Asked questions on my roles within the last few companies I worked with and why i wanted to join CAE. Not asked any competency based questions on my experience and the process was very disjointed.

    Waited over 4 weeks for an update on the interview outcome and am still waiting for an update at time of writing this...no email or phone call to advise of an update. Very poor process and not impressed.
