    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Westport Innovations (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Three interviewers - one supply manager, one senior engineer, and one from HR. There were questions about past experiences and technical skills. Interestingly, there was a test in my knowledge about manufacturing procedure - two similar machined pieces were presented to me and I had to describe the difference between the two pieces, the way they were machined, and the material it was made out of.
