    Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Groton, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat (Groton, CT) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Pre-Interview:
    The process took 2-3 months. I applied online and waited to here back from them. I received a call asking to come in for an on site interview. They offered to pay for travel and paid for a hotel in Mystic which was nice.

    Interview Day:
    You park near the human resources department in the EB parking lot and go in to get your pass. The day was scheduled out for a tour of the shipyard which was awesome and they have strict no phone policy for security purposes. After the tour you come back and wait a little bit and do some paperwork with your HR rep. You then take a shuttle to the New London location and you will be picked up by your recruiter at the main desk. After the interview you talk with one of the engineers in the department and go have lunch in the company food court (paid for by EB). Once you are done with lunch they send you on your way back to the HR department to do a little more paperwork and on your way you go.

    Interview: The interview took about an hour and was laid back and was used to get a feel for how you are as a person. Went over my resume and asked questions about projects and over what EB does to an extent (they can't say a lot due to security reasons).

    Pipefitter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in North Kingstown, RI
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat (North Kingstown, RI) in November 2013.

    Interview

    They asked a series of questions to which I answered truthfully. Upon which they made a hourly rate offer of $14.14 I took it without bartering thinking it was a good way to get in the door. Had I known a mere idiot can lie to them and get hired for $25 or so an hour without even knowledge of how to use a level or even what a mere basic household tool was I would have bartered for higher pay.

    Administrative Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Groton, CT
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat (Groton, CT) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 7 people! 5 of them were there in the conference room and 2 of them were over the phone. It was a good interview but very overwhelming because I didn't realize I was interviewing for 3 different positions at once.
    Just a note to anyone who applies there:
    When you upload your resume it will change format. So make sure you let them know you have the resume in the proper format at the interview, have enough copies for about 8 people.

    Materials Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat.

    Interview

    Submitted an application at a college career fair and was called for an interview about a month later. No phone interview or screening. I drove 7 hours for the interview which lasted about an hour with 4 individuals. Nice people, no real difficult questions, fairly formal.

    Was told that I would have an answer in about 2 weeks. After 3 weeks, no reply. When I called they said it would be about another week. Called again in about two weeks, they said they were still making their decision. My opinion is that they made their decisions and were keeping others on the line in case they refused. Salary they offered to MBA's was not impressive. About $30 - $40,000. Never had any communication from them again, regardless of the fact that they said they would get back to me.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat.

    Interview

    Very easy, I was recruited in and met with two managers. They were annoying and try tricking you in many ways so be ready. Instead of guiding with clarity they try and walk you to the wrong type of an answer. It was very strange.
