    Senior Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Proterra (New York, NY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Phone interview was about 30 minutes long with Mechanical Engieering manager who worked on the East Coast. I applied for a job on the West Coast. I was told job function would be about 10% product-line support and 90% design. Interviewer was very straightforward. Proterra has a problem where they have too many orders for buses but not enough resources. Job would have been very fast-paced and the company does not have many (or any) standardized processes. Company is growing quickly. Primarily uses Solidworks for CAD. 2 weeks after interview and no offer extended.
