Don't be afraid to ask for what you are worth. If you have experience it can play in your hands. As far as salary goes.
Read the book Scrum or learn the term Khan-bon. Ask if the X-ray & Dry Penetrant area
uses a colored wheel (kinda like the wheel of fortune) they figure out which part has priority
for the day. Ask if overtime is available(Saturdays).
Ask about the 5S and EH&S. Ask if you can bring up questions @ the ALL Hands meetings.
Ask if it is acceptable to eat on the shop floor (welding booths behind closed curtains) and or
inspector lady(who has a snack from her filing cabinet then turns in a veteran next door).
Ask during the new year if furlough days are available (no pay). Some where in a city that has
two rivers in the mid-west.
I have an Indian food and I am doing a Subhaka breakfast. So issues will get such work in the country.

They are easy to interview with. They don't know much about other areas than their own...Be ready with some Lean Mfg and ACE buzzwords. If can't answer technical questions, just answer with "I'm sure your team has already developed a system to ...... I'm sure we can either design it or improve ...blah blah...." and you'll be alright. There is also a "ValPar" test you must pass before you get hired.
This is a manual dexterity test, putting little wires through some holes, etc...
Also memory tests online, common sense scenarios to solve, different little things that anyone can pass easily.....
Just make sure that you inquire about the team dynamics, training, staff onboard, and their expectations. Eventhough they still maynot tell you the truth.
Show that you can play well with others and show that you are knowledgeable about position you are pursuing,

Be sure you understand what type of job you are applying for. As long as you know the details and can answer the technical questions close enough, they are easy enough to interview with. They are as nervous interviewing as you are, so relax.
