    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Spirit AeroSystems in January 2017.

    Interview

    Very slow and not very well organized in my opinion. First interview was with a hr (I'm assuming) rep. Then was a group interview with a few managers over the phone.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Spirit AeroSystems (Wichita, KS) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Everything began with a meet and greet. Small room. Body language was hard to hide. The interview started with some personality questions the proceeded to my self-descriptive summary of my career. Then I was required to demonstrate the safe way of handling and using specialized test equipment and tools of the trade. The process was finalized with a technical exam that I had to perform while the others in the room made conversation about everything and nothing at the same time. I realized that was a tactic to see how candidates perform with distractions. I jokingly drew it to their attention that they were not going to distract me from the task at hand. They laughed and then it got quieter. I passed.
