    NH-4 Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Air Force.

    Interview

    Three-part hiring process. Employment questionnaire and supporting documents are submitted and qualified by computer/screener. Resume and supporting documents are reviewed for relevancy to position. Top candidates are selected for interviews and all answer the same questions. Each step in the process is independent of the others, so don't assume the interviewer is familiar with the contents of your resume, for example.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the application questions is a multiple choice for level of qualifying engineering experience, ranging from education (engineering degree) to many years of experience combined with a Professional Engineeering license.   1 Answer
