Operations Industrial Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oklahoma City, OK
Declined Offer
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Oklahoma City, OK).

Interview

The first round is a phone interview that lasts around 20-30 minutes. They asked all situation based questions. This is an entry level position and being a recent graduate a lot of the questions I had to answer based on college classes. After maybe the 5th question the asked me just to talk about a specific project.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Columbia, SC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    There was a quick phone interview, followed by a more detailed in-person interview. It was more of a high-level problem solving interview, as opposed to a detailed interview asking you to "prove" your skills.
