    Market rate and/or 10% above current salary. Two weeks vacation is the standard, but you will likely receive an extra week if you simply make the request. Most will receive the first week of vacation after 90 days; however, if you request it, HR will grant two weeks after 90 days.

    Process Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at North American Lighting in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and two or three weeks later I received a call to set up a phone interview. The call was with the manager of the process engineering department and was extremely straight forward (plenty of tell me about yourself, tell me what you're looking for, tell me about your schooling, tell me about your experiences, etc.). The phone interview was very relaxed and went very well, and I will say that of all the phone interviews I've had, this seemed to be the first where they understood that I was a recent graduate and expected me to impress them with my personality and education, not dazzle them with my accomplishments.

    One or two days later I got a call to schedule an onsite interview and plant tour - they wanted to have me there the next day if possible but were understanding when I had to schedule for a week later. The on site interview felt organized and mostly comfortable. It started with a few forms (which seemed redundant after the online application) and then a computerized personality test, followed by a computerized skill benchmark test (basic knowledge and problem solving, and then a few timed sections to see how fast you could process information). This was a little unusual to me, but wasn't bad at all. After this there were several 20-30 minute interviews (2 or 3) with never more than 3 people in each. There was one with the supervisor, one with the manager and his manager, and I believe there was one more with other department managers. Overall it was extremely relaxed and very friendly. Nothing out of the ordinary. After all of this (2-3 hours) the department manager took me on a 30 minute tour of the plant. Then there was a short meeting with HR to fill out one more form, and that was it.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at North American Lighting (Paris, IL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Hired on through Unique Temporary Agency. I was not interviewed at all by North American Lighting, only by Unique Temporary Agency. I was called in on Thursday to interview. No interview was conducted beyond "Do you own steel toed boots?" and "When are you available to begin?" I was then told they did not know when North American Lighting would be hiring again. I received a call the next day to tell me that a position had opened up and they needed me to start Monday if i still wanted the position.
