    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Remington Arms (Lonoke, AR) in June 2011.

    Interview

    They haven't followed thru with some of the things they promised in the interview. I wish I had negotiated vacation time. You only get two weeks to start off with and it doesn't increase until you're there for five years.

    Interview

    Lengthy and hectic. Different opinions on what was expected in position. Sounded like more changes coming. Territory could change. Kept changing date and time for interviews and who would interview. Lots of same questions from different people - could have done a panel interview and saved everyone time.

    Staff Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Elizabethtown, KY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Remington Arms (Elizabethtown, KY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    There were 2 phone interviews, and then they flew me down to Kentucky for the onsite interview. I had a brief chat with the HR manager before I was taken to a large conference room and met with a lot of managers, directors, and engineers. All of them had been there for many years. We discussed the position at length, and the reality is they were interested in how to make their products more cheaply not really adding value. The position duty was how to take their existing product lines and manufacture them for less money. Not a lot of innovation for their R&D center. I could really see why Remington had lost market share and why for a lot of their civilian products they were resting on their laurels. The interview seemed to be going well. I went on a tour of the facility saw the offices and met with the people. Overall they seemed to have lost the passion for what they were doing. Maybe freedom group had sucked the fun out of designing guns or the extensive testing they did had taken its tolls but not a whole lot of enthusiasm over all except for the HR manager.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were really that difficult. Just be prepared to show cost savings or demonstrate design improvement that lead to cost savings.   1 Answer
