    Management Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntington, WV
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Precision Castparts (Huntington, WV) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter at a campus career fair, they scheduled me for a phone interview which went well. I also had to take some online personality assessments. After this I was invited to an in person interview at a plant in Huntington, WV. They provided lunch and a tour of the plant which was great. The first real interview was with four employees and it was not a pleasant experience. They asked some situational questions as well as questioning me about my entire resume. Next they brought me into a conference room where four more employees asked me some similar questions, then they gave me 30 minutes to produce a technical presentation on something I have worked on in the past. They did not notify me of this at all before stepping into the room. I had to scramble to find something on my google drive. The presentation was a wreck and I think it was what lost me the job.
