    Applications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at TRUMPF (Hartford, CT).

    Interview

    I applied for this position online. I was then contacted by recruiter to do a 1 hour phone screen. The hiring manager actually postponed my phone call for two hours (each time saying it would only be another hour), which I found to be a minor inconvenience.

    Following the phone screen, I was flown to their site in CT for an onsite interview. Interview consisted of the recruiter, manager, and another colleague. I never heard back following that interview. I thought that it was a very unprofessional conclusion.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at TRUMPF (Plymouth, MI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    This was a very quick, efficient, and concise interview. The interview was with a group of individuals and was very focused on a particular department that was in need of leadership. Another department manager was involved in the interview and was very concerned in regards to the interactions between the two departments. Both interviewers were very upbeat and open to a detailed dialogue in regards to the position, its responsibilities and their expectations for the candidate. Total process took approximately an hour. The only negative to the interview process was the delay in response and feed back after the interview.
