    There was first a phone interview in which I had to talk to about 6 people on the other line about my prior experience. Afterwards the in person interview involved sitting at a conference table with the same people fielding different questions. The questions ranged from discussing prior work experience to how I would feel about certain hypothetical work problems. Nothing technical in terms of programming ability was discussed.

    Value Stream Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Dealt with a recruiter, so I initially was screened through him. After this, I talked with the hiring manager over the phone. After this, an onsite was scheduled. The recruiter stated to get a book about top-grading since this is what the Crane does. I read the book as it discusses the CIDs interview. Book only costs $15 to 20. Buy it, read it, and you'll do well. Be honest with your answers. It is also funny as they do not top grade as much as they say the do. And they do not hire 'A' players.

    Engineering Technician II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Redmond, WA (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview a few days after applying to the position, fairly straightforward 30 minute call talking about the position and asking me about myself and my experience, was asked at the end of the phone interview to come in for the electronics test. There are varying levels of engineering technician at Crane but for Engineering Technician II, the test was about 15 multiple choice questions dealing with basic analog circuit analysis. After this test was taken on campus, it was graded in front of me and then I discussed the test and had what I'd call a "soft interview" with an engineer. He mainly talked about the test with me and went over the ones I had missed, but also discussed the company and my experience briefly, nothing in the form of interview questions however.

    There is another step to the interview process which is an on-site interview with the lead Engineering Technician.

    Interview Questions
    • On the technical test, there are mainly DC analysis questions which can involve inductors. If you've mainly studied AC analysis lately and deal with only resistors and capacitors in filter configurations like I mainly had, be sure to study up.   Answer Question

    Negotiation Details
    When I was hired 7+ years ago, there was a good hiring rush. We (several prospects that passed preliminary interviews) were entertained at a dinner and had testimonials from many long standing employees. They asked me if I received any bonuses and I did and they added it to my initial first pay check.
