    Model Shop Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Graco (Saint Paul, MN).

    Interview

    I was contacted for a phone interview within two weeks of applying. Basic questions about current job and prior experience. This lead to an on site interview within a week after phone interview with department Director.
    Director seemed very unprepared for interview. She actually took a personal phone call on her cell during the interview. Current supervisor was moving to a different department but was not present for the interview to answer basic questions about the job. Made contact with supervisor later during the interview after I asked for a tour of the shop.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Graco (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2016.

    Interview

    This is for an Internship position. Phone interview with recruiter a month after applying. A week later I met with two managers individually to see if one of them is interested which took about two hours, one hour per person. Got called in for another interview a few days later to meet with one of the manager's team members. Interview took about two hours again, one hour per person. I was asked some questions that weren't really job related in the second interview. One of the team member sounded like they weren't as interested in hiring interns that were about to graduate. This made it awkward because I was about to graduate and i was compared to previous interns that didn't meet their expectations based on my class standing.

    I'm not sure what was going on but it's best to say that i didn't get the offer. I did accept an offer elsewhere. I'm just disappointed that i wasted 4 hours of my time for these interview rounds when I was not going to get the offer. The recruiter didn't even get back to me on the time the recruiter said he/she would. The job description also did not match what the managers were looking for specifically. I would avoid applying here.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Elk River, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Graco (Elk River, MN) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Did a panel interview for a short term contract, 12 people. It was really stupid for a less than six month contract. I spent 4 hours at a time previous with the contract house interviewer. The whole process was stupid and a waste of time since I didn't get the contract job.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me about a FMEA analysis, I had worked on. I stumbled on what the answer, on the drive home I remembered what I wanted to describe. Didn't get the job. They are looking for the perfect engineer fit, they are too stupid to realize that person doesn't exist.   Answer Question
