    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Meggitt.

    Interview

    Applied online, contacted fairly quickly. Interview process was tedious (2 Recruiter screens, a hiring manager call and hiring manager in person interview) and it took my following up with the recruiter to get a generic rejection with no feedback.

    Interview

    A joke. I had too many interviews, and they never had the courtesy to tell me I didn't get the position. The same thing happened with my friend for a different position.

    Interview

    People were not there on time, disorganized, too many people interrupting during the interview. The human resources aspect was very unresponsive. Seemed unorganized and not very "people" oriented. I have Interviewed at many organizations which have done a lot better..

    Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Meggitt (Irvine, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Spoke with HR recruiter and the interview went very well. Was told that I had advanced to the next stage. The hiring manager was a no-show to the interview with no advanced notice. Later I was told that I did not have the required skill set for the position. Very shady and unprofessional process as I was over qualified for the position and received glowing reviews after the first set of interviews. I am glad I was given a trailer prior to accepting any offer.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Meggitt.

    Interview

    For this program, they conduct interviews in both the US and UK. I was part of the US interviews since I am a US citizen. There were two interviews total. The first was a phone interview. The second was an onsite interview where I was flown out to CA. Phone interview was more focused on the resume. The onsite interview was a panel with 3 interviewers. Most of the questions were behavioral. The phone interview was conducted in late November a few days before Thanksgiving. The onsite interview was the first week of January. The UK interviews were conducted a couple weeks after the US interviews (late January to early February) thus, I did not hear back about my offer until the first week of March. However, the HR lady consistently emailed every couple weeks to let me know if I was still under consideration which was helpful.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I was initially called by the HR Recruiter to set up a phone interview with the Operations Manager. Then after speaking with her I met in person with the Director. I then had a phone interview with the VP/GM and was invited down for a site visit. Everyone was warm and the questions were very good. Know yourself and the job.

    Originally understood it was going to be an interview with one person, then another afterwords. instead it started being a 5 person panel interview, and it was my first time ever having a panel interview with more than 3 people at once. it was scary. A tour of the facility was conducted afterwpords, by the original person appointed for the interview. I acted like i had the job in my thinking. I felt comfortable of the work environment. I was confident I may have landed an offer.
