    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Woodward.

    Interview

    Spoke with Woodward at a college career fair. Applied online and got an interview slot.

    Interview was with one of the engineers working there as well as an HR rep. They made me feel really comfortable in the interview. I felt like my skills & experience matched up well with the job description and that I put my best food forward, but didn't get the job. I don't have the best grades so they probably found someone more qualified.

      Shouldn't have been unexpected but I didn't have an answer prepared.
