    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Knoxville, TN
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Radio Systems Corporation (Knoxville, TN) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Initial contact was through email, followed by 3 phone interviews and a panel interview. Every one was very polite during the process, even though I was not informed about not getting the job for 2 weeks after a “decison” was supposed to be made.

    IT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Knoxville, TN
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Radio Systems Corporation (Knoxville, TN) in June 2011.

    Interview

    First got pre-screened by HR to understand my background and skills for the position. Then met with the hiring manager in an informal interview. We talked about the role and what the responsibilities were. Met with a couple of people on the team and talked about the company. The process was very underwhelming. I'm not sure they all understand that interviewing is a 2-way street and that I was trying to figure out it was the right place for me.

    Senior Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Radio Systems Corporation.

    Interview

    The company is very disorganized. After being contacted by HR and conducting my first short interview, it was another month before I was called back for a panel interview. After that, it was another month before I was called back for a second panel interview, after which I had to wait another two weeks before I received my rejection notice, by voicemail. The whole process took three months. That seems a little excessive. On the up side, I enjoyed everyone I met at the company. They were very nice and personable. I would still consider applying for another position there someday.

    Interview Questions

    • They repeatedly asked me if I felt comfortable directing activities like photo or commercial shoots, which have little to do with the skills/duties of a graphic designer.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Radio Systems Corporation in July 2016.

    Interview

    It was very low key. More "get to know" me questions. I previously worked in the same industry so I had a reputation that proceeded me. Phone calls and a couple face to face interviews. It was one of the more pleasurable interview process I've been involved in.

    Embedded Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Radio Systems Corporation (Knoxville, TN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    After a nice phone interview, they brought me on site. Got the tour, met all of the main engineering players. Seemed like a good fit. Got an in depth feel for the organization and how projects were run. Got the impression that there was low turnover and that most people liked working there. They are a typical cubicle farm though which is a turn off. Never met with anyone in HR, so no benefits or perks were presented or discussed. After the interview the feedback was very positive and I was told they liked me. Then the recruiter told me there was a newly implemented hiring freeze. Seemed very odd to me.

    Interview Questions

    • Wanted to know if I would relocate. Asked a couple of different times too. They must have had problems with people not relocating to take the job.   Answer Question

    • Why do you want to work at Radio Systems Corporation?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I did not find the work environment suitable, with very-low walled cubicles containing 4 engineers each, in an open floor design. I did not think it would be easy to concentrate while working there. The schedule and deadlines are also quite aggressive, so a lot of work seemed to be done evenings and weekends.
