    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at RBC Bearings (Fountain Valley, CA) in April 2016.

    The interview was very informal. I interviewed with two people separately. The first person I spoke with asked more questions to evaluate my soft skills, whereas the second person I spoke with asked more questions to evaluate more technical skills. The interviewers were very professional and were very welcoming and attentive. Both allowed me time afterwards to ask them questions about the company and position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at RBC Bearings (Seneca, SC) in May 2014.

    Interview

    One on campus interview and one site interview in Seneca, SC.
    1. The on campus interview was one on one with the potential manager. It was a pleasant discussion of past intern and co-op responsibilities as well as my leadership experience.
    2. The site interview included a tour of the factory floor. I spoke separately with two applications engineers who had worked there for a year or more to understand what my role would be. I spoke with two other engineers who attended undergrad with me which was nice to get the take of a recent graduate. I also spoke with a manufacture director and the same potential manager.

    Overall, the interview process was pleasant and professional. However, I declined my offer due to the salary ($58,000 - they were not willing to negotiate) and the location being too close to my previous university when I wanted to move on to a new bigger location.

    Interview Questions

    • Generic questions about past intern and co-op responsibilities. They asked I enjoyed reading because the job was heavy on technical documents.   Answer Question
