    Mechanical Engineer II Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat (North Kingstown, RI) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The whole process took approximately 3 months. I submitted my resume to the GDEB website and after approximately 3 weeks I was called and told I had been selected for an in person interview. During the initial interview I spoke to my direct supervisor for approximately 1 hour about my various experiences and why I feel I would be right for this job. Approximately 2 weeks after my initial interview I was contacted by my staffing specialist and was asked if I could come in for a second interview. The second interview lasted approximately 1 hour and I interviewed again with my direct supervisor as well as the department manager. Questions were straight forward and the interview process seemed "normal" for a large company.

    Interview Questions

    • Please explain project management experience.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate my salary as the offer I accepted was higher than my current salary. I was prepared to take a reduction in salary in order to work for General Dynamics, but it was not necessary.

    Senior Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat (Groton, CT).

    Interview

    You are left to wait in HR for over an hour getting only a brief benefits overview. Then you get a shipyard tour for about an hour. Next you wait for another hour or so before you have a series of interview with multiple people from either one of multiple departments. Each interview is about 20 minutes and easy. The interviewers are trying to sell you on the company more than you are trying to sell yourself. Finally, you have a lunch with an employee to ask questions about salary, workplace culture, etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat (Groton, CT).

    Interview

    Was flown out to Groton CT for an interview. After checking in I waited 2+ hours in the waiting room for my interview to start. Other candidates who showed up after me were taken in before me. HR didn't acknowledge me. Finally was taken in and given a tour and provided lunch. This group interview went great. I was told initially HR would meet with me after but they weren't around after to meet with. My application status is still "pending" after 5 months. I've reached out to HR a few times via email just for closure, and have not received responses. If I didn't get the position I am okay with it at this point, but it's very unprofessional and disrespectful to ignore a candidate especially after flying them out for an interview.

    Engineer I/II (0-4 Years) - Structural Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat (Groton, CT) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Company provided a hotel for me to stay at the night before, when I arrived there, they had a prepared folder for me explaining everything I would need to know about the interview. There were other people there interviewing for other positions as well. I overheard that most of the other interviewees were receiving lunch vouchers, which I did not get. All the interviewees then were given a tour of the shipyard, and shortly after, I had to drive to another building to interview for the position that I applied for. The person who I was supposed to interview with was only in the room for about 5 minutes before he left to do something, so I was interviewed by two other people who didn't have a say in whether or not I would be hired. The interview only lasted about a hour. Once that was done, I returned to the HR office where they let me leave for the day. The entire process lasted about 3 hours.
