    Pros

    Cobham taught you a lot about different methods in supply chain. The company also gave you the ability to work in all facets of supply chain.

    Cons

    The company does seem to have quite a few turnovers, but it was mainly because the amount of workload that was expected of you.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Colorado Springs, CO
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cobham (Colorado Springs, CO).

    Interview

    I originally applied for an executive assistant position, but they called me to suggest the inside sales representative position. It seem like a good fit, so I went ahead and did 6 interviews (5 in person and 1 phone interview) with them, but never heard back from the company afterwards. The only feedback I received was that wasn't chosen for the original excecutive assistant position. I tried to call and email the original contact person, but his phone was disconnected. I tried to contact one of the people I interviewed with and his email didn't work, nor did he call back.
