    Interview

    Was contacted by a member of the department to ask if I was interested in a phone interview. Phone interview happened within a week and was then invited to travel to the company for an in person interview with flight, hotel, and rental car paid for.

    IT Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stratford, CT
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    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.

    Finance Professional Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sikorsky in September 2009.

    Interview

    The first portion was a phone interview. Next there was a 1:1 interview, which went well. Approximately 1 week later, I had a round of interviews within the finance arena, right up to the CFO. I found it refreshing that every Finance person who is hired must meet the CFO. I cannot think of any other company I have ever interviewed for where I met with the CFO.

    Interview Questions

    • Primarily interested in ethics. If you are not interesting in maintaining your professional integrity and having the hightest ethical standards, this is not the company for you.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    If you are interested in furthering your education, take this into consideration. Most master's degrees can cost up to $100K. They pay for everything, including books, and they do it up front. I have never seen this type of commitment to employee development.
