I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Port of Seattle

Interview

This was literally the worst interview I’ve ever had, mainly due to their process. The person that lead the interview (not the hiring manager, but the recruiter), has an extremely heavy accent that is almost hard to understand, and the rest of three folks on the call barely said a word. They said nothing about the position or duties, but instead asked generalized questions. Was so odd, I didn’t even know what to do with myself. Definitely an organization I would not want to be a part of.

Interview Questions
  • They actually asked if I knew what a w2 is. I mean, who creates these questions??

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Port of Seattle

Interview

Was identified by an HR recruiter about a month after applying online. After first contact set up a zoom meeting due to covid took about a week. 4 panel teleconference with foreman, manger, technician, and HR rep. Everyone was real professional, however I do get the good old boys vibe for this department, I'll put it this way OWM. Given the very high wage for the position, I expect that is what the technicians here are protecting. Most questions were computer science based not electronics or electrical, I have over 20 years in the field. Interviewed two different times for this position with no offer.

Interview

Applied for position. Received call to interview via Skype. At interview time, HR used Skype and had me use phone for audio which was really poor and made it difficult to talk. Questions asked were not related to the actual position and the interview was super boring and sterile. Interview raised red flags for sure.

I interviewed at Port of Seattle (SeaTac, WA)

Interview

The whole process is very vague and unprofessional. HR firstly gave a phone call screening and set a date for on-site interview. However, several days later, they just sent the email which said that they do not move forward. The way they treat candidates make people do not want to further apply for any other positions of Port of Seattle.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Port of Seattle (New York, NY) in Jan 2019

Interview

The initial interview was via an unexpected phone call so the communication was all one way, at first. The next interview was to be in-person and I should expect a call on the following Friday that did not come, but it was right before the holiday so it was not that big of an issue. Once the holiday was over, I received a call about coming in for a face-to-face interview. The questions they asked were read off of a laminated sheet and were pretty much the same as you would find on most interview prep sites. Two out of three of the interviewers were pleasant to deal with. I never did get any sort of indication about the hiring status. Based on other people's experience having gotten a notification, I'm not sure what to make of it.

Interview Questions
  • Talk about a time when you've had to convince someone that you're point of view is correct (I'm paraphrasing)
