    Senior Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Springfield, IL (US)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at StandardAero (Springfield, IL (US)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Process took 3 weeks. I interviewed with HR, then a hiring manager, then called on-site for an interview with the team.
    It seems like a small manufacturing/repair shop. I didn't see much growth in the opportunity. Additionally, they could not meet me salary requirements and I was in the same state and city. So that was a turn off.

    Interview

    I was initially interviewed on the phone by several managers. About a week later I was asked to come in and interview in person by several of the same managers.

    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at StandardAero (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed for an HR position and went through an extensive hiring process where every thing was going well to be all but be guaranteed an offer. The final interview with the upper level manager did not want another Ph.D. in the department as it would be seen as direct competition. After that interview, the job had changed and there was certain experience missing to where an offer would not be extended and other HR candidates needed to be interviewed. As this process would extend past the month already going, the hiring manager stated updates would be provided. Two months later, an update was provided that other candidates had been interviewed without much success. However, business needs had changed and with that the skillset required had also changed. At this time, other candidates will be pursued and I am no longer a viable candidate.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Springfield, IL (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at StandardAero (Springfield, IL (US)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Initial contact with HR recruiter to set up phone interview. Phone interview with 3-5 people on the line. Emailed a request for an in person interview. Arrived at the company and was there most of the morning/day. Initially interviewed with 4-5 member panel including a section supervisor, VP, and HR rep. Took a tour of the facility, followed by an interview with another section director and VP. I was told over and over again how I fit their profile for the job, how "perfect" I was for the role on paper, etc. The process was absurdly long and strenuous...particularly in hind sight when I received the "offer". The people were great, but the offer was NOT a serious offer and a major waste of time as far as I was concerned. For reference, I received an offer from a competitor 1 month later that blew their offer out of the water (in every conceivable way) and I turned it down...THAT'S how ridiculous this company's offer was. Don't waste your time, get the salary info squared away up front and be prepared for a shock.

    Reasons for Declining

    It was an insulting "offer". I don't believe they are serious about stated objectives based on the offer.

    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at StandardAero.

    Interview

    This was for a position at the Associated Air Center branch in Dallas. The HR emailed me expressing interest in a phone interview about a week later I interviewed with 2 engineers. They mainly asked behavioral question with a few questions about projects I worked on. I was invited to an on-campus interview where I interviewed in person with the same two engineers and got a tour of the facilites. I was offered the job about a week later. Overall a pretty standard interview.
