    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at O'Neil & Associates (Dayton, OH) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Application process took a couple weeks in clouding offer. Applied online and heard back from HR the same day. Was asked why I was leaving my other job, then set up a real interview. Walking in the door everyone was pleasant. Interview included HR for personality question, Technical staff and project managers in the room and phone call in from a client. All in all seven people were in the room.

    HR asked many question regarding personality, about how I work with others and under stress. They emphasized a lot about the long hours. Technical staff grilled on ability to comprehend schematic diagrams. First made sure I wa comfortable on on system, told me I might not be with that system, once they got the ok that I was comfortable moving around, told me I could be on the same project for 20 years.

    After the interview, I waited about a week to hear back. I got the offer, but they tried to low-ball me at $18/hr. I told them to try again. After a couple days they came back with $21. The job description said $50,000, so I turned them down.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at O'Neil & Associates (Miamisburg, OH) in February 2015.

    Interview

    O'Neil & Associates pulled my resume from Monster.com and called me directly. The human resources person asked me a few initial qualifying questions and established rapport. She answered my questions accurately and invited me to ask as many more as I liked. The follow up call came the next day and we discussed the interview process, potential compensation, benefits, and past experience relevant to the position. The human resources representative asked me to a five member panel review at the main office with 48 hour notice. The panel took one and half hours. Human resources called me with a job offer within three days.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about what I knew about their company, how much experience I had in skills pertaining to the job description, some personal questions such as, "do you have many friends." The panel wanted to know exactly what level of mechanics I worked while in the military. This question came up many times. The questions focused on my Army and Air Force experience, other experiences were not addressed.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was direct. O'Neil stated the industry low for this position, I stated my opinion on my skills, they adjusted the offer and we came to agree on an amount. There was some flexibility in that O'Neil and Associates did consider my other skills and experience when discussing salary. Their offer did not move too far, but it did move.
