    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at Doble Engineering Company (Boston, MA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Interview was not professional at all, very easy but no clear direction. For example during the interview, I get asked very basis questions, like where do you see yourself in the next 5 years. Or do you know the company? of course I will not come to an interview without knowing a bit of the company

    Lab Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Doble Engineering Company (Watertown, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online after I saw a posting on Indeed. I started with a standard phone interview with HR and about 2 weeks later they called me back to set up an in person interview. The in person interview took about 3 hours and I met with 2 managers, a VP and HR. Questions were fairly technical, as they should be. The entire process was very transparent and all interviewers were very professional and friendly. All interviewers gave me an opportunity to ask questions about the position and the company. I liked that they all had nothing but good things to say about working for Doble and seemed to take pride in the company. A week after the in person interview they called to offer me the position.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Doble Engineering Company (Watertown, MA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Their interview process, while thorough, was done a lot more efficiently than almost all other companies I interviewed during this job search. They clearly vetted people more effectively before starting the interview process, and the job description matched the job well. The qualifications and required experience they were looking for were reasonable and matched the job description. They also made a decision quickly and communicated well after the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were either about my experience or how I would go about testing some examples of their specific software. A couple of questions to see how I would approach unique problems. An example was them showing me one of their products and asking me specifically what things I would test on it and how.   Answer Question

    Interview

    The interview process took about 2 weeks. They flew me in for the face to face which lasted about 2 hours and gave me a tour of the building. The phone interviews before that were actually pretty easy. After the face to face interview I received the offer whiting days.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard personality questions but the technical part was pretty intensive   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Doble Engineering Company in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of four interviews on the phone at first. These interviews ranged from personality (understanding of the position, interests, previous experience, etc...) and gradually became more technical. It was clear the purpose of the interviews was to help me understand all the responsibilities of being part of the team. Also, the technical questions were to get an understanding on where I was with regards to my P&C experience and overall background. After the phone interviews I was flown to one of their offices and had one more interview sitting with two people (one HR and one my boss to be). After that I spoke to 3 different people who work in the team I was being interviewed to work in, but these conversations were in a get-to-know style.

    Administrative Assist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Doble Engineering Company (Watertown, MA).

    Interview

    The interview process went well. It was when I was offered the job that I had a problem. I had been very upfront about my salary requirements and was told that it fell within their range. Well the job offer came with a much lower salary then what had been discussed previously. When I asked about negotiating a higher salary I was told that I was being offer the highest they had for that position and that since my current company was closing it's doors soon, I should just take this offer because it would be better than nothing. I found that response to be extremely rude. Needles to say, I turned down the offer. A month later I started at a great company with my desired salary and it's less then 10 mins from my home. Now this is definitly better then Doble
