    Field Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Mass Electric (Waltham, MA).

    Interview

    Applied online, a week or two later I got an email showing interest and needing to take an online personality/IQ test. After this they needed a Hirevue interview which is like Skype but by yourself. If they liked this review the HR manager had a phone interview trying to find if the job is the right fit. The final step was a face to face panel interview by senior managers. Followed by lunch with lower level managers. FYI lunch is a secondary interview. Overall, a long process, lasting a little over a month, but it seems most companies are going this way anymore. Definitely a positive process. The face to face interview in Boston was not difficult, they're just trying to get to know the candidate.

    Negotiation

    Since, I was an experienced hire I countered the initial offer once. They met me in the middle. I don't believe entry level hires have the option. Overall, a fair negotiation.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mass Electric (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process was standard. Met the HR person, did a 1st interview, than flew out to the main office for the 2nd interview. The HR person was quite nice and took care of the expenses for the trip. I only flew out for a day though which was unpleasant, but overall standard interview process. I got an offer from MEC but the initial offer was extremely low. After performing my due diligence it wasn't the right fit.

    There was an small online test, and there was also a short video interview in which they asked very standard questions. There was also a behavioral test which was somewhat lengthy, but just be yourself and use your best judgement. Then they fly you out for a final in person interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mass Electric in December 2015.

    Interview

    It is somewhat of an involved, multi step process.
    After they review your resume you must complete a personality and cognitive survey. If you pass that section you move onto the online HireVue interview. HireVue is a program that generates interview questions and records your response. It's a little awkward to be honest, essentially you are given 30 or so seconds to read the question and about 2-3 minutes to respond. If you get pass the HireVue section, a person from HR will schedule a phone interview. Some of the questions are repeats from the online interview but mainly they just want you to get a feel of what they are looking for and see if you are still interested. I had a very positive experience and interaction with the HR generalist. No surprises.

    Interview

    About as complicated as with other local companies: talk about your experience, get lunch, go to one of the local projects. Should not be the end of the world for somebody who has been through at least couple oc the interviews

    Interview

    I applied online. Then you have to do an online questionnaire regarding your personality. There was then a recorded webcam interview where you had to record yourself answering questions. Then a phone interview which was more like an interrogation if you ask me. Then if you pass the phone interview, they would invite you over to their Waltham office for an interview with a panel.

    Interview

    I was asked to fill out Peopleanswers survey and was given an opportunity to present myself through a digital interview. The questions were only of HR level and behavioral type. It was fairly easy and the interview did not take more than 15 minutes. Just make sure you know enough about the company and do show enthusiasm for the job opening during your interview.
