VERY basic. More conversational than structured questioning. I was asked by multiple people, "What is your biggest accomplishment?" Another popular question, "Why do you think you're a good fit?"

I interviewed for a Control System Engineering position a few years ago. I am an expert in pointing and tracking control systems in Aerospace. The interview was a complete waste of time. I spent about a week to prepare a graphical presentation on my skills in designing advanced military pointing and tracking systems. The Kymeta staff had no insightful questions and really did not care about what I could do for them to build a superior product. It was as though the need had gone a way. The questions that were answered in the structured interview by one individual was meaningless. By the end of the interview the principal engineer in charge of my interview waltzed in and said let's wrap it up. I was disappointed that I was not allowed to show my skills and background in a way that would really benefit the. In the end, I told them they were going to be a failure due to the vibration environment and they were ignorant regarding solving end to end systems design. It was the worst interview I ever had and was upset I had wasted my time. Initially, I drove around the parking lot to see how many costly vehicles there were. There were none. I knew going in that they must pay poorly as nobody is showing that they are doing well by having fancy cars. I would never work for them. If you look on LinkedIn, you will find they have had many employees in the past that were let go. If you are young and straight out of school, it might be a good place to do advanced work. For a senior engineer, I did not trust their systems approach and did not want to get blamed for the team doing a poor job. Old guys want to avoid this and manage the risk in doing any job as a contractor, consultant or an employee. It is too bad I could not help them. Maybe if I had talked to the CEO o Kymeta directly, I could have had the influence that I wanted to have. In any event, be very careful signing up to work for Kymeta. Less

Do you think you would be satisfied doing this type of work?

4 Answers

There's no good answer to this. I said that it would be a different challenge than what I've been doing for the past many years and therefore would be very satisfying as it would keep me challenged. Less

Depending on your comfort level.....A good answer is "I am looking for a challenge, that is why I am here today. I feel (insert name of company) will provide me with that opportunity which will benefit both (insert name) and my individual career goals." Less

"HR Guy said: “Depending on your comfort level.....A good answer is "I am looking for a challenge, that is why I am here today. I feel (insert name of company) will provide me with that opportunity which will benefit both (insert name) and my individual career goals."”" --- That would be a good answer for someone who isn't familiar with the company and doesn't already work there, but it isn't a good answer for someone who already works there and was looking to move up in their field. Unfortunately the person doing the interviewing and the person who would have been the manager determined I was overqualified for the job and that I would be bored because they had already been burned by hiring someone who did get bored and left after only a few months. They didn't want to get burned again so they refused to continue communicating with me (this was confirmed with people at the company). The funny thing is, I'm not over qualified for a job I haven't done before. While I am very qualified for what I do and over qualified for lesser positions in the same field, I'm not overqualified to be a car mechanic, because it isn't something I do on a regular basis. It's very unfortunate that HR and TA people assume people are over qualified if their resume is stellar, not realizing that different jobs require different skills and that people do sometimes apply for jobs that are outside their comfort zone for the challenge. Regardless of how 'over qualified' they seem to be for said position. Less
