    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Westinghouse in May 2019.

    Interview

    The first communication was about a week upon applying, from a recruiter. A phone interview was scheduled, with the hiring manager and another employee, and it lasted around 30 minutes. It was mostly an opportunity to learn about the company, site, culture, and capabilities. About a week after the phone interview, the recruiter called and scheduled an in-person interview. The in-person interview consisted of the hiring manager and three employees. The setting was in a conference room. A lab practical was also part of the interview process, which allowed the interviewers to see how you worked through problems. Finally, a tour of the facility closed the interview. All of the interview questions were behavioral and required responses following the format of: example, your contribution, and the outcome.

    Interview Questions

    • Give an example of how you optimized/improved a technique. How did you do it? What was your involvement? What was the outcome?   Answer Question
