    Material Test Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Simmons Bedding.

    Interview

    Phone Interview: Discussed job requirements and expectations. Somewhat casual, with little direction. More of a discussion about the work environment. Interviewer had previously held the job, and was very knowledgeable, as well as was in charge of making final decision. Interviewer was more interested in general experience and interest in position rather than specifics or previous education.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Simmons Bedding (Janesville, WI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Long process. I didn't like the initial phone interview, it was completely scripted off the job description. They use non-company recruitment for the first stage. Everyone was pretty nice and communicated. Facility was a bit worn out and empty. I did not get to see the plant.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Simmons Bedding.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume on my college career center website. About a month or two later, I was contacted by HR over the phone, who asked me why I had applied to the position/why it interested me, and then we set up an interview time for me to come to their office. The in-person interview was only about 30 minutes, and it was not too difficult. My interviewee was who would be my potential supervisor, and he asked me basic questions off my resume, about projects, etc.

    Interview

    The job was posted and I applied through the website. I worked with the hiring manager first who arranged a phone interview with the department lead. After the phone interview, I was invited to a series of one-on-one interviews with Directors and above from several cross-functional departments. The facilities are nice and there is coffee available and drink machines.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Simmons Bedding.

    Interview

    After a phone screen, brought in for an on-site interview. I was shown around the facility with a sitting down at the end. They basically asked all those typical interview questions on the phone already, so they did not repeat asking questions too much, and just introduced their technology, their products, and how they do stuff in the on-site interview. The interview was not hard, and the recruiter made you feel comfortable.

    Interview

    Back in 1995 the process was easy. Today I have no idea of what the Simmons interview process consists of. I left the company after nearly 18 years and went on to work for one of their competitors. Since coming over to their competition I have cost them several points of market share in Southern California.

    It was a very relaxed interview. He didn't ask the usual questions. It was just a conversation. He said that could train anyone to do the job. He was looking for someone to get along with the rest of the staff. I was very comfortable with him. It didn't feel like an interview at all.
