    Welder Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kent, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Exotic Metals Forming Company (Kent, WA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Application first, then a brief phone interview. After an actual in person interview. Weld test given at interview, along with a tour of the facilities. Interview also included a math test asking employees to show an understanding of measurement down to .001" and the conversions of fractions, percent's, and decimals. Lot of talking about the culture of the company. Almost more chatting than interview questions, which was a relief for me at least. Know that knowing the culture of the company is very important. Look for it on the company website prior to interview. After the weld test and interview, I had to wait a few days to hear back. A Couple follow up calls were required on my part, but my job offer after all that made it worth it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Exotic Metals Forming Company (Kent, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    First is a phone interview, and if they like you for the job the company will call you in to meet with the hiring manager for the department. If they choose to hire you, they will ask for a drug test and after you pass they will offer you a letter of employment and you can negotiate/choose to work. They offer a much lower salary for the same work as another company but if you are there after a year AND before the profit sharing check, you can receive the profit share of nearly 1/3 of your salary. This company does require mandatory overtime however, including 6 day work weeks (on the plus side you will never be crying for extra hours).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Exotic Metals Forming Company (Kent, WA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    A phone interview with a person from HR, followed up by an in person interview with your future supervisor, followed up by an interview with the department CTF (lead).

    Shift Supervisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Exotic Metals Forming Company (Kent, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process is a 5 step process. First you will do a phone interview with the hiring manager. If everything goes well then you will do another phone interview with about 4 production managers. Next step is a walk-through and face to face with the production managers. After that you will have a couple interviews with HR and another manager. The interview was very professional, but as with all phone interviews, it is hard to gauge the feel of the room and there is very little feedback.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Exotic Metals Forming Company (Kent, WA).

    Interview

    There was an initial 1 hour phone interview where the recruiter asked questions and also described the position and the company. The on-site interview that followed began with the recruiter who gave out a 20 minute math test. The test was easy, very basic as it is given to all of their employees. Then I met with the department head and a few other employees. Good Experience.

    You'll get a phone interview, and if they like you they'll bring you in for an in-person with 2-3 senior engineers sitting in. They'll ask you few questions about your resume, background, and then they'll give you a few test questions to see how you think. Pretty chill overall.
