    User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Johnston, IA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Pioneer Hybrid International (Johnston, IA (US)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Probably the worst interviews I've ever had. Unrealistic expectations and little understanding of the field. Had multiple interviewers, met the team, and overall felt like the interview went well but the culture seemed stuffy. They do seem to be very forward thinking with technology and hiring a lot. Seemed like a company who has processes to plan for processes that may never happen. With rules that invade personal life. Was told you could get fired for calling into a meeting from your car. Not a big fan of the IT office setup. Seemed cluttered. Spoke with a couple team members who seemed very concerned about mergers and layoffs with a lot of staff becoming contractors. Not sure I would recommend this company. The larger panel and questions unrelated to my role was very off putting. The job description didn't match the title I interviewed for. At least some of the team seemed to have a really great sense of humor. Every interview was long and ran over time. Very poor follow up and feedback. Took a very long time to complete the process.

    Temporary Research Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pioneer Hybrid International (Johnston, IA (US)) in December 2009.

    Interview

    Interview was casual, with the interviewer asking many thought provoking questions to make sure you can solve problems and work with other people. Some hypothetical questions were also asked, some of which didn't really make sense, but it seemed like they were basically trying to see your thought process.
