    Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hobbico (Chicago, IL) in July 2015.


    The in-person interview process was rather informal and relaxed, and did not follow the typical behavioral question format that most other companies religiously adhere to. This was a welcome relief, as it is usually difficult to get a good read of the position in those situations. Instead, I was able to discuss the position at length with a manager and an employee, and both offered detailed and helpful answers to each of my questions. By the end, I was able to get a solid understanding of how the team operated and what responsibilities the position entailed.

    This was one of the better in-person interview experiences that I've had, but unfortunately I never heard back from anyone after the interview. Numerous emails went unanswered and I eventually moved on to other opportunities.

    I would've rated this as a positive experience, but I felt it was a bit unprofessional that they ignored all attempts to contact them after the interview. I understand if I was not the right candidate for the position, but a simple form email or short response indicating that I was no longer being considered would have been greatly appreciated instead of silence.
