    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GKN (San Diego, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I received a call from a recruiter, interview on site with Production and HR, and finally a 2nd Interview with the Master Scheduler and site tour. During interview there was several questions regarding skills and manufacturing environment. Very professional hiring process. They try to sell you GKN culture as a company so you can decide if your fit or not.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GKN (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Terrible interview process. Phone screen 3 days before I went in for an actual interview. Showed up and was interviewed by one of the project managers in his office alone. He straight up said "I don't care about your resume or what your past experience is" . He never bothered to even glance at my resume in front of him and only answered basic questions of mine and just told me to "sell myself". Very unprofessional interview overall since he didn't even bother asking about me or ask any questions in general.
