    Pros

    Many areas have great team environment, some areas you can define your job role depends on the leadership.

    Cons

    Communication, and false representation of production schedules

    Advice to Management

    Don't micro manage your people, let them take ownership of their work area. Use your chain of command to communicate across business units. Help, direct, mentor when needed, otherwise do your own job.

    Sourcing Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Beechcraft.

    Interview

    I had 4 different interviews for my position at Beechcraft. Overall, it was an okay experience. I was dissatisfied with the fact that the job positing was for a senior buyer and I was hired as a level two sourcing buyer. I could not get a clear confirmation on my title until a month after I was hired.

    Interview Questions

    • This question was not only difficult to answer, but very strange. I was asked by a manager who is no longer with the company, "If I could have anything written on my epitaph, what would it be?"   Answer Question
