    Engineering Coop Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Beverly, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CPI International (Beverly, MA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    HR emailed me and asked to set up a short phone interview. Very professional, no in depth questioning. We set up a face to face interview the following week. I came in and interview with HR, again just a friendly chat. Then took a tour of the facility with two different engineering managers who oversee two different departments. They were very friendly and didn't ask technical questions at all. I also interviewed with two other design and manufacturing engineers, again just a tour and simple questions. The interview is the same whether it's electrical of mechanical. I think the most difficult question was to describe a voltage divider.

    Interview process with them is not that difficult. Once they call for an interview, you are most likely hired. Before hand they filter your resume very well. They will take you to visit in two different major areas. They might ask you a few questions about different kind of test instrument. And it is a good place learn.
