    SupplyEngineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Westport Innovations (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Three interviewers - one supply manager, one senior engineer, and one from HR. There were questions about past experiences and technical skills. Interestingly, there was a test in my knowledge about manufacturing procedure - two similar machined pieces were presented to me and I had to describe the difference between the two pieces, the way they were machined, and the material it was made out of.

    Business and Sustainability Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Westport Innovations (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The first stage included a 45-minute phone interview that was pretty much the standard format of an interview (strength, weaknesses, etc). A week later I was invited to an in-person interview with the intended direct supervisor and the HR person , and it that lasted about 40 minutes and included mainly professional questions. I felt right away that I was not a good cultural fit, but I did my best. My advice - even for non-technical roles, stay away unless you have a degree in engineering. Westport, being a very technical organization, is not a good place for peoole who do not have this kind of background, and that's what I meant by "cultural fit".

    They told me that they haven't decided upon the next stage - it could be another interview and maybe even an exam in MS Excel, stuff like that.
