    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Scot Forge (Spring Grove, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    First interview with manager of the department and HR. Second Interview with Manager, HR and another production control team member. It began with an internal application. Once thirty or so applications were reviewed, the list was cut approximately in half. There was an initial interview and after about a month, it was narrowed down to three candidates. The three candidates were then interviewed again in more detail with not only a set of verbal questions, but also a set of skills tests. Most of these tests involved using Microsoft programs to filter and interpret information from spreadsheets.

    Interview Questions

    • Actually had to show the team in Excel how you would filter information to answer questions about lead times, etc.   1 Answer
