    Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Bottom line:
    Good preparation will make the interview easy.

    I prepared for the interview by:

    (1) Reading, on Glassdoor.com, questions that many other people were asked during Crane Inc. interviews. I wrote my own answers and memorized them. During the phone interview (and the later on-site interview), I found that this preparation helped a lot.

    (2) Reading other web sites with interview questions (some with answers too). I found hundreds questions. I didn’t have time to figure out answers to them all, but I wrote my own answers to several of the more commonly asked questions.

    (3) Reading web sites with questions to ask the interviewers (as soon as they ask “Do you have any questions?”).

    After all this preparation, I was able to answer almost all of their questions instantly.

    During both interviews (phone and on-site), there were several technical questions from the prospective manager and a few standard HR type behavioral questions.

    During the on-site interview, I was given a tour of several parts of their facility.

    After the phone interview, but before the on-site interview, I was asked to take a “behavioral traits assessment” on the web site of another company, which turned out to be a “Big Five” personality test. I was told that there are no right or wrong answers. I think that’s true for most of the questions, but there are some exceptions that might make some people hesitate to hire you.

    There are several web sites that let you take Big Five tests anonymously and which tell you how they judge your personality. I suggest using a few them before doing any employer’s version. The latter tells the judgement only to the employer, and I like to have some idea what the employer is being told.

    Interview Questions

    • They mostly asked several, but not all of the same questions that other people provided on Glassdoor.com. And they asked a few of the standard HR type behavioral questions.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics (Lynnwood, WA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Called me to set up a phone interview within the hour. I returned the call and it worked-out but I wasn't prepared to bring my "A" game. Salary Negotiation started on subsequent calls before the face to face interview. Had a panel interview that was rescheduled a couple times that seemed to have good results. Never got a call back after leaving voice mails and several emails, nothing: Not even a Delivery or Read receipt. I would expect an answer within a month; one way or the other. Nothing. I would expect a reply to the emails with some explanation of why it was taking so long, Nothing. I would expect a return call. Nothing. Poor form from the very start.

    Went through two calls and was told that the next would be from Ops manager. Their internal Recruiter said that I met all of the requirements for the Material Manager and was qualified for the position. Next call Never happened, called the recruiter and was told that the Ops manager decided on other candidate. Two weeks later, new job posting changed Job name from Materials Manager to Materials & Procurement Manager.
