Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Stanley Black & Decker (Towson, MD) in August 2017.

Interview

3.5 hour round-robin interviews with 5 people (45 minutes each). I was the only candidate present. Interviews were in the following order:
• HR—generic character questions (tell me about a time when...)
• Electrical Engineer—resume project descriptions, a basic EE question (voltage dividers, H-bridge functionality)
• Mechanical Engineer—resume project descriptions, "Why SB&D"-type questions
• Director of Construction Innovation—role-playing troubleshooting a problem (actually fun)
• Senior Safety Engineer—resume project descriptions

Interview Questions

  • (HR) Tell me about a time when you were angry at a decision your team had made:   1 Answer
  • (EE) "What types of batteries did you use to power this project on your resume? Did you actively check to see voltage levels of the batteries? If you were to, what type of circuit would you have used and what's the equation for it?"   1 Answer
  • (ME) What was the most complicated thing you've ever disassembled/ reassembled?   1 Answer
  • (Dir. of Construction Innovation) Brought in 2 different, partially-disassembled drills. Explained that one was an older version of the other. Proceeded to explain the differences between them in their designs, and finished by stating that the newer drill model has a specific flaw (i.e. it breaks prematurely in normal use cases).
    "You can run any tests you like and I'll be your technician. I'll tell you what the ordered test output: if you ask to see a slow-motion video of a certain action, I'll explain/ draw what I saw. If you ask for some analysis, we can return a graphical representation of results. Your job is to find out why the newer model is breaking prematurely as described."   1 Answer
