    Interview

    Telephone call to discuss job requirements, candidates experience and skills. The job specs required experience in 5 different SAP modules (MM, PP, SD, CO, CO) and ABAP programming which no one has. I have hands-on experience in SD, CO & PC ..yet the interviewer said i did not have a technical background.

    IT Lead Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Sikorsky (Stratford, CT) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The process took 6 weeks from initial contact. I applied online, a couple of weeks later I got contacted by a recruiter for screening and initial interviews. The hiring manager then followed up with me and was very professional, he knows his stuff and definitely a guy I really looked forward to meeting.

    Then got called onsite for super day. Went through security, had the plant and site tour, then met with the HR person in addition to both hiring managers, in addition to lunch. Both were professional and well informed, in addition to the meetings going well.

    Then....the hiring lady goes "You'll hear from me in a week". I follow up after the meeting with a thank you note. A week goes by, nothing, two weeks go by, nothing. So I reach out only to be told they haven't made a decision yet. This is after a lack of follow through, especially since in our field follow ups are extremely critical to getting anything done....and we discussed this during the interviews as well. I thought the staff was very professional, but the lack of follow through was a bit off putting especially since people take the time and there are expectations set.

    One thing to note though....I found the on site interviews a bit over-staged. Plant tours, videos about the company, lunch provided, cafeteria, library tour etc was a bit too much. Those things are usually done after an offer has been made and accepted. Not when you're just interviewing candidates. So that was a bit off putting.

    So it's been 6 weeks total.

    IT Supervisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sikorsky (Stratford, CT) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Whole process took two weeks, though nothing was ever on time. From the first phone call to the actual interviews.
    Spoke with the HR lackey, then the hiring manager, things appeared to have gone well. Then went in for the in-person interviews. That was a whole production that wasn't necessary since it involved at least 25 other candidates. They did this whole presentation, videos, plant tours, even provided lunch. That was a bit too much.....thought that was something you did after making the offer.
    Actual interview was ok, seemed very scripted and they were just going through the motions. Only real meaningful part was when the actual IT guy had some discussions around the position, expectations etc. It all seemed to go well.

    Then zero follow up. Thats the one part that should have been the red flag even from the initial interviews. No follow up email, no updates, not even the automated email. I don't think some HR people realize they are also being observed / interviewed, they seem to turn themselves into a brick wall between the organization and the public. Needless to say I was turned off and tried to follow up. The response was flat...."no updates at this time". The lady just seemed very standoffish but then again perhaps that's the culture there.
    Thumbs down!

    Test Engineer I Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sikorsky (Stratford, CT) in March 2015.

    Interview

    They first brought us into a big conference and the HR people gave us a presentation (3 of us). Then they called us in one at a time for interviews. I interviewed with two different managers and had lunch with other interviewees. After lunch some real estate people gave us a presentation. Then they took us on a tour of the plant. I never heard back from Sikorsky either way after spending 6 hours and writing email inquiring about status. They are laying people off in CT so maybe that's why...

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sikorsky (Stratford, CT) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was inviting to Sikorsky's Super Day and was pretty shocked that the interview was with a group (O&R) who explicitly told me over the phone that other parts of the company would be more in line with my skill-set. The majority of the day was just being shown around and told the benefits of the company with one 45-minute period of questions that were not technical in nature. It was not unexpected when I was not offered a job as I was once again told the same thing by the same person who interviewed me by phone. The whole experience was seemingly a pointless exercise for both parties involved and I was expecting to be interviewed by someone else.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sikorsky in July 2014.

    Interview

    Surprisingly little formality to the process. For an all-day visit, I was not given any agenda before or upon arriving. Interview was largely haphazard meetings with team members. I'm reviewing primarily to note their delay in reimbursing travel expenses. It's been a month already and I'm told it will be at least 2 more weeks. While inquiring about this I learned that my only contact was out-of-office for 2 weeks without providing a delegation contact, and my inquiries elsewhere in the company led nowhere, as they said they had no access to my expense info because I wasn't an employee. This and their use of outdated paper forms did not inspire confidence in their internal processes.
