    For Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Loram in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview, your basic questions nothing really pressing. It was a very average interview. My only gripe was that it felt partially rushed like the interviewer was just going down the checklist of questions instead of asking follow ups he would just move on. They seemed a bit disorganized as they said I would definitely get a response with in 2 weeks confirming whether I was considered or not but they never did and contacting them was difficult.

    Electrical Controls Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Loram (Minneapolis, MN) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to jobs.loram.com I received a confirmation email (generic) letting me know that my resume had been received. I was contacted by a recruiter from their HR department within 48 hours to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was conducted and I was offered a chance to meet in person with the hiring manager at their offices. I received a confirmation email regarding my scheduled interview. The interview was held on time and was very professionally conducted - I was provided a tour of the facility, including the manufacturing area - this was very helpful, as it provided good background for my conversation with the hiring manager.

    I received feedback from the recruiter after a few days and was invited back for a second round of interviews - they call it Behavior Based interviews. I was not familiar with this process, however the recruiter took time to discuss the process with me, so that I did not walk in cold, or have to figure out the process, while I was also trying to answer questions. This was extremely helpful and appreciated!

    After the second round of interviews, I was told that it would be approx a week before a decision would be made, as they had two other candidates in consideration for the position. After a little over a week, I was contacted by the recruiter to discuss a potential offer. We discussed factors related to getting me on board and any obstacles/issues to me coming on board at Loram.

    The next day, I received a call from the recruiter and hiring manager, offering me the position with Loram and they explained the process and timeline for my joining them.

    All in all, it was a smooth experience and I feel like I was treated as a professional, and had ample opportunity to interact with everyone necessary to get a good feel for the company and the position. After being at Loram for a little less than a year, I can say that there have bee no suprises - what I saw on the front side, is the same as my experience today. This is a good company with a "homey" feeling to it. They work very hard, and play hard, too!!!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Loram (Hamel, MN) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Was told about Loram from a friend and went to the career center and filled out an application. I then had to wait a week or two for the recruiter to show up from Hamel, MN to interview us. There was about 15 people applying for the positions available and there was a large group interview explaining what Loram does and what the work was like in videos and slides, you where told if you are not the kind of person who wants to travel 100% of the time then this is not for you.

    Then the interview went to 1 on 1 and they asked about our skills and why we wanted to work there, then we were told that he would be allying all week and if we did not get a call by Wednesday then he was not calling you. I did not get a call so a week or so later I called him back and asked if I should reapply or not and he said he called me but I did answer. He then offered me a spot and I said yes, I was on a plane to Hamel MN within 3 days. All travel is by plane and word schedule is 4-6 weeks away and then 2 weeks unpaid at home.
