    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Underwriters Laboratories.

    Interview

    I applied online. 3 days later I got an email from HR wanting to schedule a phone interview. We scheduled it for a few days later. The interview was about 20 minutes. She asked me what I knew about the company, why I wanted to work at UL and what was important for me in my future job. It was a very straight forward interview. A week later I got an email saying that I would interview onsite. The interview lasted approximately 1.5 hours. I interviewed with the hiring manager and senior engineer (my future boss). The interview with the hiring manager was not technical he simply asked me what i liked to do outside of engineering, what I knew about the company and why I wanted to work there. He then let me ask him questions. I asked a bunch of questions ranging from the role to how to successful. He gave me tips too it was very relaxing interview. After the senior engineer came in. This would be my boss and we would work together. He wen't over my resume and asked me about my projects. I explained to him my projects he then had me explain how a simple radar system worked. I drew a layout and explained each component. I didn't answer all of the questions correctly, but he just wanted to see my thought process.He then wanted to know me and see if I would be a good fit for the team and asked me behavioral questions. After the interview he gave me a tour of the lab. A week after the interview I get a call from HR with a job offer. Overall very straightforward interview process.
