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

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wabtec (Germantown, MD) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, was called for on-site interview directly, I guess this was because I was a local candidate. Time between application and interview set up was more than three months.

    Interview Questions

    • Had a panel interview with four engineers - went through my resume and current responsibilities. Then with the hiring manager - more of behavioral and how I fit in the company culture. He stressed more on following rules and procedure, at times giving me an impression that it is OK to not get work done as long as everything is in process.
      HR did not reply any of the emails after interview. Did not get any response whatsoever.   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wabtec (Wilmerding, PA).

    Interview

    I first received a phone call notifying me that I would be considered for an internship.

    The building was hard to find (use google maps, NOT apple's GPS software). The majority of the questions for behavioral. They asked if I had any experience with financial modeling. Ultimately, the interviewers were very friendly and easy to have a conversation with. The interviewers were all very enthusiastic about working for Wabtec and optimistic of the company's future.
