    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in South El Monte, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at VACCO (South El Monte, CA) in January 2014.


    Pretty straight forward, usually a one on one interview with all the managers, then directors and maybe lead engineers. No trick questions, just questions based on experiences and situations faced in those experiences.

    Interview Questions


    Pretty aggressive, offer came in on the low end.
