Structural Analysis Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in East Hartford, CT
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at QuEST Global (East Hartford, CT) in September 2015.

Interview

I received a phone call to discuss my resume which I had posted on monster.com. Very standard questions from "HR" personnel. Next I was invited on an onsite interview without pay for traveling expenses. I waited 20 min at the "reception area" until I was told that I have to call a number to announce my arrival. 10 min later I was brought to a conference room where a manager read a printed out presentation to me which had absolutely no useful information to me. Then I was asked to give a 15 min technical presentation. One person was looking out the window (it turns out that that person is the program manager for the department where I worked and has no interest whatsoever in what you have to say), another person was from the design team and your hiring "manager"/team lead. After the presentation I was asked some general questions about design and how a jet engine works by the designer, and then extremely basic questions about strength of materials and FEA by the hiring manager. After working in the company for a while, I saw that there is almost no preparation for the interviews on QuEST's part and people are just scrambled together to give the applicant a professional appearance. You will be made an offer regardless of whether you are qualified or not. QuEST wants exponential growth and will hire anyone anytime.

Negotiation

I did not negotiate the compensation and benefits package because I knew that they won't offer anything reasonable and I knew that I would be leaving.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at QuEST Global (East Hartford, CT) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Visited the East Hartford location for an in person location. Interview felt very unorganized. The man handling the interview had to call people while i was there to come up and help with the interview. I had to give a 20 min technical presentation. After that, they asked a series of questions pertaining to the job.

    Structural Analysis Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Windsor, CT

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at QuEST Global (Windsor, CT) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Emailed a recruiter due to technical difficulties with their website. They called me after I emailed them my resume for a phone interview a few hours later, then set another on-site interview for the Tuesday after. Called me on Monday saying they need to review my resume for other positions and have to reschedule. The week after I get an email asking for a reschedule, and I set a date for that week. Took ~4 weeks in total. I went there and the recruiter talked about core values and asked me some general questions on what I want from work etc. An engineer on the project came in and asked me a few technical questions related to analysis, a couple of them from sophomore statics that I don't remember, including stress concentrations on a plate with a hole. I was then shown a drawing of a model and was asked how to simplify it for FEA solve times. Overthought it and didn't realize that symmetry counted as a simplification.We took a look at the ANSYS simulation the engineer was running and ended the interview, approximately 1 hour long.
