    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Kimball Electronics (Tell City, IN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It started in Dec. of 2016 with a phone screen that last 45 mins. A few weeks later in Jan was asked to come in for an interview that included a tour then a 4 person panel Interview. Standard questions tell me about a time when.... etc. was asked about things not in job requirements. Then in march get request for background screen on a Friday then get a drug test screen that following Monday I get pretty excited thinking an offer is coming. Tuesday I get a call informing me that they had sent those request to the wrong candidate. That Friday I get automated email saying another candidate was selected. The overall process was fine but the last half was unprofessional for a multi million dollar company.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oldsmar, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kimball Electronics (Oldsmar, FL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Panel Interview - Q&A process followed by a period of time to ask pertinent questions about the job duties and company. I had a phone interview followed by a Panel Interview 10 days later. The briskness of the Panel Interview and lack of questions indicated to me that they had already made a decision and I was brought in solely to meet interview diversity requirements or just to give me my 30 minutes. I did not have a sense that they were considering me as a serious candidate.

    Manager of Program Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jasper, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kimball Electronics (Jasper, IN) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Kimball uses a panel interview format. The length of time varies based on the job description. The average time is about 5 hours. They use a combination of "Tell me about a time when" type questions around leadership, communications etc and then some very specific technical questions. Kimball Program Managers need to be both business and techinically oriented to be successful in this organization. The culture is prevalent in their interview process as well since. They want to make sure you are a good fit to what exists here. Teamwork was stressed as essential

    Interview Questions

    • There were several here. They pulled from what seemed to be real life situations that they had encountered before. Their explanation when asked about it was that they had seen these problems in their plant or plants and they wanted to see if you could come up with a solution that was better or different than theirs. There really didn't seem to be a right or wrong answer, I thought they just wanted to see if I could think outside of the box.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasn't much negotiation. Compensation was more than fair and relocation was more than acceptable.

    Representative will promise potential for 35% bonus. Be sure to ask whether the site has been "profitable" for the last 5 years. The answer will be no. Kimball re-valued outdated equipment when purchaasing Reptron, adding to depreciation costs which make the site unprofitable.
