    Application

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

    Interview

    They do most of their hiring during their job fairs but, I applied online at their website through the recommendation of a recruiter at another job fair. Few weeks later, I was told to come back to do a typing test [as long as you can type 20wpm your fine] and one on one interview. It was very laid back, the person interviewing me would ask me a question and then as I was answering, preceded to talk to the person next to her...Few days later I came back to choose a schedule, take my pictures, and get my badge. Fairly easy, just not the most professional...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at General Dynamics (Huntsville, AL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 5 individuals in one room. Lasted about 45 minutes. A little bit intimidating having to answer questions from 5 individuals, but I was honest and answered all of the questions to the best of my ability. Didn't oversell myself.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at General Dynamics in December 2015.

    Interview

    After a short phone interview that did not explain much about the company, an in-person interview was scheduled. Upon arriving to the facility, I was prompted to take a typing test (their minimum is 20 wpm) and watch a video about the position. The video kept on stressing how important showing up and being on time was which led to me believe they struggled retaining CSR who are responsible. After that I met with the CSR supervisor who asked pretty generic interview type questions. Then I met with the HR manager, who basically was hiring people on the spot. They seemed pretty desperate and seemed they would hire anyone who would walk in from the street.

    Reasons for Declining

    The pay was no more that what I could make at the local grocery and the company culture seemed dismal. It's sad because if they paid more they may attract employees that are more responsible and bring more to the table.

    They are always hiring. My school had an job fair. If you went to their booth, they would write you down for an interview for the next week. You can just go to Winn Job Center and ask for an application. If you do go, you will need your license and social security card.
