    Senior Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CD-adapco (Bellevue, WA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for the job online. Developed internal networking and got interview. Here were the steps:
    - Initial phone call with the hiring manager.
    - Schedule an one-to-one online interview with an hour presentation about previous project that I have done.
    - Invited for an onsite interview:
    + One hour presentation (almost same content as the previous online one) with two of the selected engineers of the team. Lots of detailed technical questions about your project! I was impressed by that.
    + One-to-one short 15 minutes meetings (about 7-8) with each senior engineer of the group. In these meetings they represent an overview of the type of work they are doing and interact with you to get an idea about you.
    + One-to-one meeting with the hiring manager.

    Interview Questions

    • - Presentation questions were detailed question about the CFD projects that I have done during my Masters and Ph.D.. Majority of the questions were right on point, valid and accurate. Hiring manager tried very hard to put me on spot by harshly criticizing my work.   1 Answer
