    Assembly Line Worker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Livermore, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Gillig (Livermore, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on line. Contacted by email for scheduled interview. Interviewed in person with one individual. I thought the interview went well. I've had car/truck assembly experience in the past. Not sure what they are looking for. But, I didn't get selected for the job maybe it's my age or my race--as I didn't see many African American. You just never know with these interviews especially when you know you meet the qualifications.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gillig (Livermore, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I received a phone interview. The initial scheduled time and date were pushed out since the recruiting person had to reschedule. She followed up a couple of days later and quickly apologized for being unable to meet at our original time. The recruiting person was very polite and informative. She asked my questions regarding my past experience and gave me information about the company. I look forward to hearing from them to schedule a face to face interview follow up.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Gillig in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was pretty basic and they asked all the standard questions you'd expect to get interviewing for an internship position. I talked to an HR person and they asked me very standard questions (i.e. Tell me about yourself?, What interests do you have?) .

    Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gillig in August 2014.

    Interview

    Very disorganized. First called to setup interview at 6 am with VP of HR and IT Manager. 5 days later postponed for 8 AM with same folks and same order. Called in at 8:30 by IT manager grilled for an hour with all the command line questions about AD and other hardest possible once that you may use once in a blue moon in your carrier and so on to candidate like me with 20 yrs experience as if I was just out of school. Looks like he was just killing his time than interviewing me, because HR put him one hour ahead for interview schedule. At the he said HR busy for all day so bye bye.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Gillig.

    Interview

    3 interviewers, including HR. Questions were reasonable, with both technical and personality type. People were friendly and pleasant, with a sense of "family". However, office space felt very cramped and old.
