    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Wabtec (Greensburg, PA) in October 2016.

    The interview was the standard questions related to accounting, nothing out of the ordinary. Follow up after the interview was very disappointing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wabtec in January 2016.

    The HR department called me and told me that one of the CPA's wanted to interview me for an internship. The was no screening process and the interview was schedule for the next day. I interviewed with one of their CPA's and it was pretty straight forward. The only real question was "run me through your resume." Seemed like the interviewer had been interviewing people all day and was very quick and to the point. I did a phone interview as this location was about 2 hours away.

    Field Service Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wilmerding, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Wabtec (Wilmerding, PA).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiting firm for a job at Wabtec. Afterwards, there was a brief phone interview (about 30 min) and then constant communication with my future boss via phone about next steps. Next was an on site interview with the team I'd be working with, followed by another on site interview with the head of HR. The HR interview was delayed two hours because the head of HR forgot that I was coming. Afterwards, I waited 2 months for approval from higher ups in the company, and then for the official confirmation packet to arrive. This packet came late due to, as the head of HR said, "mistakes my secretary made," although as my boss would inform he, he has none.

    Interview Questions
