    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Woodward (Loves Park, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview, followed by one interview at Woodward with 3 HR Representatives present. It lasted approximately an hour .I received a "survey" via that was communicated was not a fail/pass that I completed. 5 days after my interview I followed up with an email inquiring the status of the position. I received no reply at all. I thought after going that far into the interview process that I would have recieved at the minimum an email/reply or call notifying me I was not selected. I felt it was very unprofessional and understand now why many people warned me that the new location is disorganized and unprofessional .

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Woodward (Niles, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Next day received a call from HR guy from Niles for a pre-screen. Few days later was interviewed by the Director. A week later I was invited for the interviews on-site. 4-5 interviews that lasted an hour each. They have good folks - engineering and project managers. The role was in Program Management. At parting, they said they will be communicating within 2 weeks with the decision. After almost 6 weeks and no communication whatsoever, I insisted on at least closing the loop with their decision. The HR guy was un-responsive to my emails. I finally emailed the Director and next day I get a call from the HR guy that I was not selected. It's ironic how in interviews they talk about processes and communication and try to see if you are the right fit..BS. while having no communication or processes while interviewing and closing the loop. Sorry, walk the talk please , be humble and respect the time of the individuals who are just trying to do their best showing up when you want. Reciprocate by being transparent on the hiring process. You were one of them a few years ago..pay it back.

    Woodward uses a temp agency to hire for factory work. You will go through testing of your reading and math abilities before you're officially hired. The factory jobs are fairly simple so there isn't much experience needed but mechanical experience is very helpful.
