    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooklyn Park, MN
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Greatbatch (Brooklyn Park, MN) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Out state technical recruiter called for initial 30 min phone interview. Very specific questions about previous employment and situational responses - standard stuff. Went in for face to face interview the next week. Met with HR first and not expecting anything beyond salary and benefits questions but did dive into experience and situational questions. Great prep actually before the Engineers arrived to begin grilling again. Second interview was rather quick so staff did take me on tour of facility which I appreciated. Only drawback was +3 weeks and no response on status of opening. If position is filled most companies would let you know but Greatbatch did not.
