    Mechanical Engineer/Contractor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Manitowoc Co. in October 2014.

    Interview

    I got set up for an interview through a recruiting company. They called me asking me if i was interested in this position. The position required a lot of CAD work and to work on the production floor.
    The interview process started with a 15-20 minute call with the recruiter asking me about my experience and why I would qualify for this position. So after the interview, she asked for 3 references.
    I sent her the references. Then, i got a call from her asking me she would like to set me up for an interview with the hiring manager.
    A week later, I arrived for the interview. The recruiter was there. The manager later arrived to get me and we went to an office along with another manager. I sat on the chair and everyone was silent so I started the conversation. After explaining a little about myself they asked me a couple of questions but I was pretty much doing most of the talking. Halfway into the interview, the lady manager started playing on her phone while the guy manager kept yawning every few seconds. I just kept asking myself, am i really that boring?? Anyways, the interview room was reserved for about 2 hours and the interview actually only lasted about 20 minutes. I sort off knew there was going to be no offer because of the interest they showed in me halfway into the interview.

    I contacted the recruiter a few days later and she told me that they didn't want to make an offer at this time because I had mentioned I didn't want to do any hands-on work. This is totally wrong and didn't make any sense because I told them I was very interested in being part of the production process, not just the design.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Manitowoc Co. (Manitowoc, WI) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I went through a phone interview with a recruiter, a local in-person interview, another phone interview with a manager in Florida, another interview with the recruiter and then I was flown to Wisconsin where I had to sit through 6 hours of interviews with 6 different people. And after all of that, I never even got the courtesy of a letter or email telling me I didn't get the job. What a total waste of time.
