    Applications Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    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

    Interview

    Met the employer at a career fair at my university. Scheduled an interview for a week or two out. Interview was very early, 7a or 7:30a. It only lasted about 15 minutes. The interview was with the assistant general manager. He has a very 'no BS' attitude and cuts straight to the point on everything. At the end of the interview he said 'I felt like this went really well let's go ahead and schedule your next round of interviews for next week.' The 2nd round of interviews was with the tooling manager and a senior project engineer. Each interview was about 20 minutes. They made a formal job offer within about a week of those interviews.
