    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ICON Aircraft (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Casual setting, discussed work experience & personal background. Interview questions were based off of my resume. Although, they wanted to hear about what I did on paper, they were just as interested about hearing about my personal background. Questions were about day-to-day tasks and challenges/successes I had experienced in other work environments.

    Supply Chain Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ICON Aircraft (Vacaville, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The first step was applying online, after a few weeks, I received a call for an onsite interview. The onsite interview was a waste of time for the following reasons: 1. Hiring manager was on his laptop for most of the the interview and not making any eye contact, he seemed tuned out 2. His co-interviewer, had no notes, and wrote nothing down, she seemed to be out of the loop 3. After the interview was over, I had to contact HR to get an update.

    This company has a good product but lacks hiring structure.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ICON Aircraft in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the Executive Recruiter via email to set up a phone call for a Finance internship. We set up a time and she gave me her number to call her.

    The phone call consisted mostly of her describing the position and talking about the traveling that comes along with it. She didn't really ask me any questions about my education or experience. She told me that she would give me some time to think about it and never contacted me ever again. I emailed her asking her questions about the position but she did not answer.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tehachapi, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ICON Aircraft (Tehachapi, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    ICON first approached me via their recruiter. The recruiter contacted me via phone and I had a chance to speak to one of their hiring managers via the phone for a phone screen. After a few weeks, the hiring manager spoke to me again and subsequently arranged for an on-site interview.

    Several weeks later, I drove up to Tehachapi for an interview. On the day of the interview, I spoke with about 6 people with one to two folks from each respective department. Had a chance to walk around the hangars and chat with the interviewers while being interviewed. Overall, had a great chat with all their personnel.

    After the interview, I heard back from ICON about a week later concerning an offer.
