    Internship Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dyson (Chicago, IL (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    This was a four step process: 1. Online application 2. HireVue video interview 3. 2 assessment tests 4. An in-person group "get to know you" at the Dyson HQ in Chicago. Part 4. consisted of different group activities (with other candidates) and 5 individual interviews with various members of the team.

    The entire process proved to me that Dyson is willing to put in the time and effort when it comes to picking the best candidates and making sure the culture is the right fit on both ends. The entire experience was amazing and made me love this amazing company!

    Regional Role Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Dyson (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    I had a standard phone interview followed by an in-person interview in the Chicago corporate office. After the interview, the recruiter informed me that the feedback had been extremely positive and that I would hear back in approximately two weeks time.

    Two weeks went by and I did not hear anything. I reached out and asked for an update to which the recruiter informed me he would have a better idea in a few days time. Two more weeks went by with no feedback so I asked for another status update. I still have not heard anything back.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Dyson.

    Interview

    The interview process was very long and drawn out. They missed many deadlines on their end and got back to you several days late. Nowhere through the process could you talk to someone or ask questions in real time (Unless you specifically set up a call. Even then, conversations were hurried and it was clear they had better things to do with their time than talk to you). The first step was a simple questionnaire that mainly asked for basic information plus one short answer. Next was a HireVue interview (you record responses to prerecorded questions on your computer), which was very awkward if you have never used the platform before. This included a behavioral set of questions and a case study. You had about a minute or so to prepare for the question and then had to record your answer to that question in a certain amount of time. Again, because of the format of this part, you couldn't ask any questions about the position or the company. Next, there were 3 assessments: verbal, quantitative, and situational judgement. If you passed that round, you would go to an on-site interview in Chicago.
    Overall, they are looking for very driven people, but it's clear from the structure of each round of interviews, there are many people interviewing for this position and they don't have time to get to know each candidate on a personal level past whatever their resume says.
    Originally, when I called the recruiter to clarify some things, he said that 10 people would be invited to the final round and 5 people would be offered positions. However, in the last email they sent out, they ended up only offering 3 spots, so it's a very selective program and they are still working out the details. The entire interview process lasted from late February-Mid April.
    Dyson reached out several weeks later, inviting all candidates to sign up for a 15 minute call to give feedback on their performance in the interview process. By the time I was able to sign up for a slot, all spaces were full for the next 1.5 months. The day for my feedback call arrived (Mid June), and no call came. I received simply an email with 3 computer generated reports about my performance on the 3 assessments with no further explanation. When I emailed the recruiter, he apologized for missing our call and set up a call for the next day. Again, he missed that call with no email explanation.
    If you're looking to work at a very technology-focused and innovative company, then Dyson is a great fit. If you want to work somewhere where you're recognized as a human, living person who has value, do not work here.

    I had a total of 4 interviews, one with a recruiter, the other 3 with Dyson employees. All went well with each interview as I was moved all g to the next phase of the hiring process.

    Way to go Dyson, to you last out on a great employee

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dyson (Chicago, IL (US)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Multi-step process. First was a HireVue process, which was a virtual recorded interview to pre recorded questions. Second was an assessment testing. Finally, they completed onsite interviews. Well put together onsite interview day with many other candidates and team members. After completing the thorough recruitment process, I had to withdraw myself after failure on Dyson's end to meet promised job offer deadline due to personal offer deadlines. Overall disappointing experience; Dyson missed promised feedback and next step deadline goals along the whole process. Expect a long, time intensive, arduous process.

    Interview

    There were a lot of steps in the interview process and the hiring manager was very quick in response to any emails that I sent. I had to take two tests: Situational Judgement Test and a kind of personality test after the first interview process which was interesting and something I haven't had to do before.
