    Technologist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Deland, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sparton (Deland, FL) in October 2010.

    Interview

    First pass:initial phone interview. Second phase face to face interview. Call back interview.
    Drug screening. This was on top of the screening process of Kelly Engineering Services with who I was signed up with as a contractor. They had previously checked my references and back ground data prior to initial contact.

    Interview Questions

    • My most difficult question centered around doing conversions (power, gain etc ) in the dB realm. My background at that time was mostly digital with heavy analog experience in High Voltage.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I came in as a contractor for 8 months than came in as a direct hire. I never ask about money and frankly I didn't care. I knew that I wanted the opportunity to work for Sparton not $xx.xx amount an hour.
