Reliability Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Aerotek in September 2013.
Interview Details Contacted by Aerotek for a company who outsources their hiring. I sent in my application online to Aerotek directly.
Interview was scheduled for the week after, a bit of back-and-forth to settle on the time and date but they wanted to suit my needs, location and time.
Came in for the interview. Was interviewed by the initial contacter and manager (and was informed of this beforehand). Had to wait a couple minutes after the time of the scheduled interview and then was told it would be a bit longer of a wait (manager was tied up in another meeting).
Told me upfront I'd be a good candidate for the position and would be checking references. Heard back from Aerotek within 5 days (this includes a weekend) of the interview informing me I would be going for an interview at the engineering company.
Interview Question – What do I like the most/least about engineering? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Accepted the offer to go for an interview at the actual Engineering company
Software Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aerotek.
Interview Details Got contacted by an HR from aerotek for a software dev position for a local company.
First interview was short, generic HR stuff on site. 2nd screening interview was from a higher position HR checking to see if I really was a fit for the position. 3rd was with 3 technical managers asking about my resume, problems I encountered, etc. A few technical questions like evaluating a string math equation. After the interview the manager gave me a written test to do. It was mostly commands in linux/Win stuff. A couple algo questions in the back.
Interview Question – Evaluate math expression from a given string. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Lab Technician Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
Interviewed at Aerotek
Interview Details There is a general review on the an interview that Aerotek set up for me. It was not good.
The job description was talked up and talked up to the point where the employer themselves laughed at the proposed job description; i.e. nothing like the job itself. A manager from Aerotek walked me into the interview and propsed that I already give my current employer a 2 weeks notice. WHAT?!
Staffing/temp agencies are a cut-throat business. The recruiter who was my POC at the Schaumberg office seemed like they was new to this. If you can whip out a few scientific acronyms during your interview with them, you're assumed profficient. They want to staff you so they can take their 20%-whatever- cut of your salary. Stay away.
Interview Question – Nothing-everything was very easy. Answer Question
Recruiter Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
