    Automation Engineer, Electrician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huger, SC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Nucor (Huger, SC).

    Interview

    I showed up. Met with the head of engineering David. He was nice but you could see he really enjoyed showing how smart he was and I wasn’t impressed. I wish him the best and I’m sure he’ll find someone who knows their better than me.

    Interview Questions

    • How to calculate force on a cylinder. Differential equations, calculus, ohms law, hydraulics, graphing math, how a plc works.   Answer Question
    • How to calculate advanced math. Basically the stuff you learn out of engineering school and forget since we never use it. Study up or they’re gonna make you look stupid.   Answer Question
    • I was half was done with my bachelors in electrical engineering at Clemson University just getting into core engineering classes David blank well leave his name out knew this. All while I was in school I was working as a controls engineering in the field (programming PLC,. They knew what classes I had taken and which I had not. they chose to pick questions from the classes I had not took yet. I have interviewed 21 times in the last 3 years only to be turned down 3 times for the position no hard feeling I wish them the best I just felt like I was being interrogated and out on the spot. Oh and they hair follicle test on site in case you like to burn one on the weekend I don’t . But I don’t care what you do in your spare time. No matter how much they offered I would never go to work for them.   Answer Question
