    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CAE (Bengaluru (India)) in October 2011.

    Interview

    There will be 2 people interviewing. Hiring Manager and HR. Good Process and In depth Interview.
    Technical Interview decides weather you are hired or not.
    You can negotiate salary but they will not agree. Hiring Manager has a say in the salary offered.
    Overall the interview is driven by the previous answers. They do not have any specific requirement on experience on Simulator . But they clearly pose a lot of questions on how can you learn and how quickly you can learn

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CAE.

    Interview

    Interview was fair. Mostly about previous job and how you can be an asset to the team. Be positive and energetic during the phone interview. The interview will go well if you are prepared, you simply cannot just "wing it" as they will ask tougher questions at the end.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CAE (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I had a very nice interview with two engineers.First, they asked me about my past working experiences and my education. Then they described the working environment at CAE. After this, they asked me several typical job interview questions and gave me three small exercises to solve. The exercises were not very hard and my interviewers were helpful. I guess they just wanted to see how I react when facing a problem.
