    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Wärtsilä North America in February 2009.

    Interview

    Very long interview process , first interview is with your manager. They are very thorough , due to fact that job is very demanding and require high level of technical expertise. If you pass first interview , second interview is scheduled , and second was conducted as group panel interview. Many questions will be asked and better be prepared to highlight your experience and skills . Second interview lasted about 1 hour . After the interview if you are accepted , manager will follow up with the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain your engineering experience , and provide some example how you handle some particular problem.   1 Answer
    • What can you say regarding some of yours previous employers.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no viable negotiation. Manger has all cards in his hands. Questions can be asked ,however again, according to my experience not many chances to negotiate. Job offer was fair.
