    Pros

    There are many chances for you to move around the company if you felt like taking on a new challenge

    Cons

    It is a company that has quite a niche in the market, however the market does fall significantly, jobs can be quite volitile.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that the management in Austal do a sterling job considering the challenges that the face in the global market

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Austal (Mobile, AL (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview about 2 weeks after I submitted my resume. The interview went great. I interviewed with a Contracts Manager. After 3 weeks, I emailed HR and they told me they were still interviewing applicants and would let me know either way. Now it has been 5 weeks and I still havent heard anything.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard interview questions related to Contract Administration and how I handled difficult problems in the past. Very straight forward.   Answer Question
