    nPower Girls seeks to narrow STEM gender gap | Vancouver Business Journal

    While studies show girls' and boys' academic abilities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) are at parity in high school, only about 25 percent of STEM jobs are held by women. The paucity of women pursuing STEM careers inspired Vickei Hrdina to found the nPower Girls program in 2014.

  • 13 games, 7 weeks, 5 teams, 1 company. It was another superb kickball season for the folks at headquarters. Congratulations to the Green Team for taking the 2017 trophy!

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nautilus (Vancouver, WA) in August 2015.


    The interview process involved a phone interview, hour long job shadow and panel interview. The phone interview was pretty simple, just a one on one with very basic questions. The job shadow was interesting: more a way to see if it is a position that you want. There was a short meeting with one manager following to answer any questions. The third step was the panel interview: with nine managers/higher ups in the company asking varying questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Their questions focused mainly on mindset and experience. Current position, reason for leaving. Ability to handle conflict in the workplace, financial goals, main motivators, ways in which one strives to better their life.   1 Answer
