    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Spirit AeroSystems in January 2017.

    Interview

    Very slow and not very well organized in my opinion. First interview was with a hr (I'm assuming) rep. Then was a group interview with a few managers over the phone.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle a problem when you are not given enough time or resources?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    From what I gathered, it didn't seem like a great place to work.
