    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Hatch.

    Interview

    Applied through summer program. Quick phone interview before they brought me in (I live pretty close to their office). Generally the interviewers (3 engineers) were pretty friendly and as a student the questions they asked were not very difficult on the technical side. Office tour and all that jazz as well when I dropped by.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Received interview through summer program. Casual atmosphere and mostly fit questions. Not many technical or engineering questions considering that I was in high school at that point and would not be able to answer them anyway - the jobs that I was eventually put on were basic research. Would recommend to younger students.

    Interview Questions

    • Why are you going for this internship over another one?   Answer Question

    Senior Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Buffalo, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hatch (Buffalo, NY).

    Interview

    Traditional, candidates are more prepared than interviewers. Circulated between members of senior staff. Filled out application form that requested salary history. The hiring decision maker was slow to decide, needed followup prompting.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't recall being challenged by any questions because I was working with a good job-seeking adviser at the time.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Offer was good - negotiation was not necessary.

    Junior Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hatch (Tampa, FL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Initially contacted via email about setting up interview time. The interview was scheduled, and at this time, I was informed there would also be a candidate assessment test, and I should expect to be there for 2 hours. When I arrived, I was told the candidate assessment test would take place first, with the interview to follow.

    The candidate assessment test consisted of a ~6-7 page booklet of questions. The first couple of pages consisted of behavioral question, such as "Give an example of a time when a coworker disagreed with you. How can you learn from this situation? Would you have done anything differently?, etcc" Each question for this first part of the test contained multiple questions and you were expected to answer in detail. The second part of the test consisted of position specific questions. In my case, there were questions relating to engineering, common acronyms, codes, etc. I was also asked to solve "simple" engineering problems in this test as well. You are given 1 hour to complete all questions. You write all answers, including short answers, essays, etc., for this test on the booklet, you don't use a computer. In that hour time-frame, you are also asked to fill out a paper application.

    After the assessment test, you are interviewed. I was interviewed by the manager, division leader, and HR, for a total of 3 people. They asked general questions that can be expected in an interview. They didn't really have a set list of questions to were working off from. The interviewers gave opportunities to "sell yourself" in place of asking question after question.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hatch (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview with human resources to verify that I met the initial requirements and to verify that I was able to work in Mississauga for 16 months. My second interview was also by phone since I am a student in Kingston. The second interview was with two engineers. They mostly asked me questions about myself and from my resume. The interview was easy going and felt more like a conversation than an interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hatch (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    First round was a phone interview with hiring manager (20 min, very casual). Second round was an in-person interview at the Mississauga office consisting of six consecutive 30 minute interviews with different members of the team. Very friendly and casual, every employee was very professional and showed genuine interest in getting to know me as a prospective team member. The focus was more on finding a good fit for the team than on particular technical skills. Was quite tiring to do so many consecutive interviews (don't be afraid to ask for a break!). HR was also very helpful and professional throughout the entire hiring process. Nice office.
