    Design Engineer Specialist (Contract) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ontario, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Celestica (Ontario, CA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Brought into small room and moved in 2 more chairs for a 3 on 1 interview, 2 senior engineers and 1 HR rep. Interview was mostly behavior with almost none on technical. It's the easiest interview I ever had for a technical position. Lasted about 30 minutes the most. Got a call from headhunter the next day and offered the position. Salary was 5K lower than I requested and it's salaried, so no OT pay.

    Interview Questions

    • When asking interviewer about Corp. Culture, 1 Engr and 1 HR Rep. gave a confused look and the other Sr. Engr questioned back "What culture?"...clearly he didn't want to get into it as I later discover the majority of employee are Hispanics and top managements arrived from Mexico not long ago...   Answer Question

    Supply Chain Mgt Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Celestica (Austin, TX) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Interview process (panel of 4) was very informal with less than optimal questions related to the position and my qualifications. The panel members were courteous but seemed rushed and under stress. Panel did a good job of explaining priority issues but not a lot of time dedicated to hearing focused responses.

    Interview Questions

    • Our Canadian business operation is in a leased facility just acquired by the Canadian government upon previous landlord's default - and they are not allowing tenants to renew their leases; therefore, our business operations there are in jeopardy and timeline is short. What would you do to handle this situation?   Answer Question
    • The company needs to award certain project contracts to external parties but the union maintains these services can be performed by union members and therefore not allowed to be externally contracted. The union agreement is gray in this area but the current members do not have the skills to perform the needed services. The union says it will file grievances and take the case to an arbitor for resolution. Time is of the essence. What would you recommend we do?   Answer Question

    IT Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Merrimack, NH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Celestica (Merrimack, NH) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Referred to Celestica via a private recruiter whom found my resume' on carreerbuilder,com. The recruiter contacted me via email first, then phone screening, then she set up a phone interview with Celestica.
    I interviewed via phone for 45 minutes with the hiring manager, then a second phone interview with a member of the IT PMO management. Mostly standard questions, nothing really surprising.
    After each interview the recruiter gave me feedback on our next step.
    We entered salary negotiations and they delivered me an offer letter via email (followed up by a signed hard-copy via FedEx, the next day).

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I entered negotiations prepared with a list of items to negotiate. I had a phone conversation with the hiring manager and I walked through my points. He countered a few, declined a few and accepted some outright... Some required followup with HR and they were very helpful.
