    Manufacturing Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Watson Pharmaceuticals (Salt Lake City, UT) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Two interviews, one with the Engineering manager and the other with the head of operations. The engineering manager will go over a set of pre-selected questions. Mostly wanting to know if you are enthusiastic about being an engineer and if you are wiling to put in long hours. The head of operations asks questions about how you will fit with the company and if there is room for you to grow with that site. They do not read off a list of pre-selected questions. The head of operations has been there for a while and is a good resource if you have any questions about working in this position.
