    Training Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Precision Castparts (Clackamas, OR) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Incredibly unstructured. The first question that I was asked was "What do you want to know about the role" which is a bit odd. Everyone was professional and enjoyable to talk to but there was a sense of 'flying by the seat of your pants' feeling which is strange for a company like PCC.

    The worst part of the interview are the hours of assessments they require before interviewing. It can be very time consuming and rigid and should be completed after a job offer is extended. Not to every candidate they phone screen.

    Interview Questions

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Precision Castparts (Medford, OR) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews; one was a screening call with a recruiter, and one with my would-be manager. The recruiter seemed to be more on her game, more professional, and more helpful than the manager. What made the interview difficult was the manager seemed passive in the interview. It made the conversation difficult and uncomfortable.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me about my experience and how it would help me perform well in the role.   Answer Question

    It was mainly behavioral, although they did ask about my prior experience as well. They seemed like they were interested, although it seems now that they were not that interested because of a failure to reply to my follow-ups.
