    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Precision Castparts (Irvine, CA) in March 2016.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Precision Castparts (Huntington, WV) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Really have no idea what you're going to be doing. The company seems to be stable and doing well. Also appears to be innovative. That is not the case. Questions aren't really answered during the interview. More like vague descriptions. Try to research the position as much as possible with this company and find out a general idea for pay. If you dont then you could be getting half as much as the person beside you thats doing the same job. Break apart the job description and look for things that seem half complete or like they only get something half done. You need to ask about during the interview. If you cant get an answer that will probably mean that youre going to be picking up all of the odd jobs that no one else has been doing for some long period of time

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Precision Castparts (Groton, CT) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I went to a Job fair at my University and spoke with the company representatives. I applied to positions online and was contacted for a phone interview. First I spoke with a HR representative followed by a second phone interview with an engineering manager. I was then asked to come in for an in person interview as I was a finalist in the selection process. I met with the engineers and managers in person totaling approximately 4 hours. It included a group interview as well as a few 1:1 interviews. It also included an interesting tour of their facility.

    Overall they were very nice and professional it was a good experience and I was glad to have had the opportunity though I did not receive an offer. They are looking for candidates who express a high level of self motivation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Precision Castparts in October 2015.

    Interview

    Had an on campus interview. The interview was very conversational and felt very relaxed, like they just wanted to get to know you. Most of the questions were theoretical behavioral questions. After each question, they would sort of explain why that question mattered to their company.
