    Engineering Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Play-Well TEKnologies (Raleigh, NC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was a Video Interview on Google Hangouts. The interview lasted about 45 minutes long. There were first some straight forward questions about why I want the job, then there was a section of creative questions (listed below). This interview required me to think on my feet, while still expressing my creative side.
