    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Weir Group (South Salt Lake, UT).

    Interview

    The interview was a Tour of the plant with the basic question.... Do you think you can do this? The supervisor told me his expectations with very big emphasis on being on time. He did brush over my passed work history. Over all it was a quick and painless interview.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Weir Group (Fresno, CA).

    Interview

    The interview is about 4 hours, where you will be individually examined by 4 different managers of the company. The interview is very technical, but you also get the typical questions as well. For example in the screening phone interview, "where did you go to school?", " what was your GPA?", and more. For the second interview, know all you can about centrifugal pumps. More importantly, tell them why you are interested in working there, what other jobs you have applied to and ( If like me you have had previous jobs) tell them directly why you left your last company? Also, what do you like about engineering and what don't you like?

    Interview Questions

    • What do you like about engineering and what do you not like?
      Where else have you applied to?
      Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Weir Group in October 2014.

    Interview

    Started with great momentum, then slowed to a painful crawl. The HR Rep who initially contacted me seemed to think I was a great fit for the initial position listed, then when not chosen, thought I'd be great for a position vacated by an internal employee. HR didn't seem to be fully aware of the decisions that were apparently taking place behind the scenes.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't recall any question being particularly difficult, but the entire process was tedious. I was first contacted by a Weir Group HR Representative. I had a phone interview with the HR Rep which was over an hour long and very intensive. I was then called back a couple days later to schedule a face to face interview with two department executives. I thought the interview went well. I wasn't contacted again for two or three weeks, and was told that an internal candidate was selected for the position, but that the executives were impressed with me and recommended me to fill the internal employee's vacated position, which would not be externally advertised, and though internal candidates would be considered, it would likely only be two, and they didn't have the experience I possessed. About a month went by, with sporadic updates from HR, each time giving me reason to believe that I would be a shoe-in for the vacated EA position; that personal interviews with each departmental executive (3) would take place, more as a formality, once the third executive was in place and when one of the other executives (HR VP) returned to the office from traveling. Finally after about another 2 weeks, I was called with the news that another internal candidate was selected without an interview process and despite the original executives' recommendation of me. The HR Rep I had been talking to about these positions seemed as though he was caught off guard and completely surprised by the turn of events.   1 Answer
