    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Cessna (Wichita, KS) in February 2015.

    Non-Formal, basically it will go well if you were pre-chosen. By that I mean almost every job posting already has someone in mind to fill it. So unless the pre-chosen declines you are just going through the motions.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cessna (Wichita, KS).

    Interview

    My interview process went quicker than most. I met with Cessna reps at my college career fair and did a 30 minute interview that day with one of the recruiters. From there, I was extended an offer to fly to Wichita for an interview-weekend with other marketing candidates.

    Once there, we spent the day working on an event-execution plan while each person presented an individual marketing plan to 6-10 people in the marketing/management departments. Questions were asked about our plan and marketing in general afterwards. After the interview day, we went to dinner with many of the people who had been at our interview earlier in the day. The following day we toured the Cessna factory and Wichita before flying out.

    Got a call for an interview. Agreed on the date and time. They set up your hotel and flight and reimburse you for meals.

    Interview started early in the morning. First thing they did was gave us a tour of the plant. Then HR talked about benefits and why you should work for Cessna. Then 1 on 1 interview with candidates, usually with an engineering manager or specialist. Then the HR person took us all to a nice lunch.

    Job offer took around 2 weeks.
