    • 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

    • (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

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Stanley Black & Decker (Atlanta, GA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an HR representative by email and a couple of days later had a phone interview. I was contacted a week later for a face-to-face interview with Hiring Manager and 2 other employees. Interview was straightforward and everyone was nice. I was told I would hear back. I sent a thank you email the same day to HR, but didn't hear anything back for a couple of weeks. So then I called the HR representative and left a message for an update on the job status. They never called back. I guess its safe to say that I didn't get the position, but I was at least expecting to hear back with a "yes" or "no" or some sort of rejection email or something! I thought that was very unprofessional for HR to not follow-up considering I took time out of my day to come and interview in person. Not impressed with HR at all.
