    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nordson.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview where i was asked general HR questions. Once that cleared i was asked to schedule another phone interview with the technical supervisor. The technical supervisor had some specific questions without going to much into detail. After that phone interview, i was asked to meet in person for a 3rd interview. The 3rd interview started with a meeting with HR where they asked HR questions about your personality and the type of employee you would be. She also went through the company background and benefits. After i met with the technical staff, i was given a tour of the facility and told they would make a decision in a couple of weeks.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nordson in May 2015.

    Interview

    I received the opportunity for a phone interview after leaving my resume with a recruiter at my university's career fair. The interview was very casual and I mostly was asked just to describe my previous work experience. The interview was given by one of the company's senior engineers. There weren't very many questions asked, so I just explained why I would be a good candidate for the position. I also asked many questions to my interviewer.

    • They brought out their technical drawings to gauge your knowledge of blue print reading and specifically asked about symbols used on the drawing.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was tough to get them to budge, asked for sign on bonus and negotiated on that in order to consider accepting and accepted one after some negotiation on the bonus portion. Recommend refusing to provide current or last salary because they will not move much past what your previous employer was compensating.

    There was only a phone interview, no in-person interview. This is only the second time I was hired based soley on a phone interview. They were only interested in my background, so I shared with them relavent work history. I don't recall any overly esoteric interview type questions, just generic which languages and compilers did I use for previous work, etc.
