    Research and Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stuttgart (Germany)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Festo (Stuttgart (Germany)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    As an answer to my application, i got directly invited to the headquarters without a first phone interview. This has not been bad per se, as the position was admittedly incredibly fitting to my CV. Still, i got invited with no clear information on how the interview process would have been, with no instructions on how to reach the place and with no agenda for the interview, just a time of beginning. Other than this, the interview has been pleasant, quite informative and very interesting (the panel was composed of managers working in a company which have a very strong engineering culture). Still, the feedback process is almost zero. i did not get any reply when sending e-mail regarding the status of the application and the process for reimbursement of travel costs. Big problem with HR: inefficient, slow and not trasparent.

    It was a 25-30 minute interview with 2 project heads and the HR representative. They were very nice people and I felt extremely comfortable. They asked the questions in a very non-threatening way and felt more like a conversation and not a barge of questions. Overall seemed like a great interview, unfortunately they did not pick me, but an amazing experience.
