    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Daktronics (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    The interview process for Daktronics was extremely long and the communication from them was severely lacking. My initial phone screen took place the first week of December and the final communication came in mid-february. There were many weeks in-between calls/meetings where the was no communication from Daktronics on what was next. Yes, I always end an interview or call with, What are the next steps?, but the responses sounded reasonable but they never really stuck to what they told me.
    How my interview process went:
    1) Phone screen with HR
    2) Email from regional manager to meet for an in person interview
    3) Phone call from National Sales Manager (not official interview)
    4) Call from HR to indicate the position was changing
    5) Panel interview with 5 managers( 3 regional managers, head of national sales, HR manager)
    6) Face to Face interview with a local HR personnel not in the sales field

    I had the feeling that everything was going well and things were moving forward. 2.5 months + 5 phases of interviews, however after the last face to face interview there was 0 communication until I reached out the following week to find out they were not moving forward with me.

    The entire interview process is full of, Tell me about a time where/when you ______________ questions with some follow up to it. I would say to anyone going through this process is to sugarcoat your answers. I always take the honest, straightforward approach for answers, but the feedback I received from Daktronics was that they wanted to see successes shine through in every scenario. Even when they ask about a failure and how you dealt with it, make you you pound your successes.

    I would say the interview process was easy as it's all about your experiences, just make sure to sugar coat it. The manager might love you and see you as a great but it's a group decision, or they might just tell you that. Honesty is one of their core values and I'm not sure they were that honest to me during the process or appreciated the honesty of my answers.

    Interview

    It's normally a phone interview first then when you do good, you get a face to face interview. They are kinda fast in the their interview process. If there is a phone interview it would probably be a panel depending on the position you applied for.

    Sales and Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brookings, SD

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Daktronics (Brookings, SD) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Prior to coming to corporate you will generally have 2 phone interviews with an HR recruiter after which they will move forward to a phone panel interview with 3 supervisors. If you are chosen to come onto campus for an in person interview. These interviews are fairly relaxed. They mainly just wanted to ensure you could have a conversation. They ask you some questions but from what it sounded they didn't want to know to much more from what was previously said during the phone interview.

    After which you are provided with a tour of the factory and head quarters... be careful because most of the interns report back to their supervisor with how you acted... it's kind of a sneaky second interview when you feel more relaxed speaking with a current intern.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember the questions personally. But I know some were behavioral based and then they just wanted to know what your personal preferences were towards working in Transportation, High School Parks and Rec, or in Live Events.   1 Answer
