    Design Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PDI (Hartford, CT) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Met with hiring manager and operations manager. Hiring manager provided an hour tour of facilities where we discussed details of the position and how they affected production. Interview was generally 'light weight,' particularly if you are keen on different display manufacturing processes. I brought sample drawings that were ultimately akin to prints they were generating at the position I was applying for; my prints were more complex than theirs. I never discussed salary requirements, did not have industry specific experience when applying, and thought the interview went well, but was not offered a position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PDI (San Antonio, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I had to pass a general phone screen to check qualifications before being advanced to a face to face interview. A DM and ABD interviewed me together in the face to face. They asked typical interview questions and then had me read over a fictitious product and role play a sales pitch. It was a one interview process with a hire coming a few days later. It was a low stress and relaxed atmosphere.
