    Mechanical Engineering Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Twinsburg, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Safran (Twinsburg, OH) in November 2017.

    Interview

    First round was a 30 minute phone interview with the Engineering Manager and a member of Human Resources. They asked basic questions about my resume and who I was; nothing too tricky. They seemed to just want to get an idea of who I was . At the end of the phone interview they asked for an on site interview. On site interview was pretty informal. I talked with one of the Project managers, and met everyone on the team including current Co-ops. It felt like they already decided to hire me before the second interview started. They were very accommodating to the timeline I was on.

    HR Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grand Prairie, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Safran (Grand Prairie, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Not a great candidate experience at all. Once I completed the phone screen, the next business day I received an email from HR for an office interview. Before the interview even started, the hiring manager did not seem in a great mood. Instead of an interview, it felt more like an interrogation. The manager even brought her two cell-phones in the interview room, and when one rang, she stopped the interview to see who called. I followed up with HR to verify status of interview and I never received a response.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Safran.

    Interview

    Applied online and ended up getting a phone interview screen. They followed a week or so later with a Skype interview. The questions were mostly behavioral, a couple of technical questions but they were very easy. Got a phone call another week later that I would need to do a background check, and got the offer by phone after that was completed. My start date was only a few weeks after the interview process.

    Test Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Safran (San Diego, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter from a staffing agency that Safran hired to fill the role. The recruiter was very professional, met with me in person to discuss the position and go over, basically, what the company was going to ask me.

    The in person interview took about an hour. I was told it would be a panel of 5. After waiting in the lobby (they have no front desk, just a phone with a book of extensions to call the person you need to see) for 20 minutes, someone finally noticed me and asked who I needed to see. It took another 10 for someone to actually come let me in the building, and about 15 more for them to actually find the people who needed to be in the interview.

    Only 3 people showed up in total, one of whom was even later than the rest. They interviewed pretty much off the cuff, asking general questions that took far too much explaining and complication to ask.

    In the end, I wasn't offered the job - my recruiter told me they felt I didn't know enough about their specific instrumentation, despite the fact that they assured me that it was an entry level position and I didn't need to have used all of it before.

    All in all, it was incredibly unprofessional, and incredibly rude. I would not want to work for such a disorganized company.
