    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Stanley Black & Decker (Baltimore, MD) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I contacted the recruiter through LinkedIn. He shared my resume with 2 teams. Both were interested. I had 2 phone interviews one with each. Was flown to Townson, MD for in person. The interview consisted of 6 one-on-ones. The recruiter was saying I was a top candidate all the time. After the interview I got back home and sent a thank you email. A week passed by and I sent her a e-mail asking about status of my application since she told me I would know right away if I was accepted. A couple of weeks passed and I called. She said they liked my interview and that they were finalizing the interview process with other candidates. Another week passed I sent an email, tried a couple of call and never heard from them again. RUDE!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Stanley Black & Decker (Towson, MD) in November 2018.

    Interview

    1. Phone interview: It lasted about 30 minutes. It was pretty casual and easy. The questions were a mix of behavioral and technical.
    2. Then got an email for an on-site interview. The interview was bit less traditional. There were 4 engineers and an HR rep present in the interview, and was told to bring 2-3 projects to present. After the presentations, there were some technical questions (i.e. I was shown a part and was asked to identify it, the material it was made of and how I would go on about 3D modeling it in a CAD software).
    3. Didn't hear back for 2 months, but then was offered another interview. Final round consisted of a relaxed behavioral interview with my direct manager (which I didn't know at the time).
