    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Eden Prairie, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MTS Systems (Eden Prairie, MN) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Interviews are free-form depending on the hiring manager. Do your homework ahead of time (know a little about the company, major markets, different company businesses, what countries have offices, etc.) and it's easy to shine. Company has strong engineering history, so if you can articulate well on technical issues and show a little business savvy it will go a long way.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at MTS Systems.

    Interview

    Met company reps at a university career fair and discussed design work, work experience, etc with two people. The first rep was a weeder and the second was a bit more thorough, the second rep invited me in for a one on one interview. The interview was consisted of mainly designing a simple test rig. Had to define the forces/moments that were to be considered and design a way to recreate the environment in the lab for testing. The interview ended with the interviewer writing down his personal phone/email and explaining that there were no positions open for two weeks (due to an HR error) and I would have to complete their online application at that time. Due to this error I did not pursue this company.
