    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Alcon in June 2013.

    Quick phone interview with manager. In-person consisted of HR, then a panel of 3 maintenance employees. We primarily discussed work habits & procedures related to communications/recordkeeping instead of technical "gotcha" questions. Next was the supervisor, who gave an excellent tour of the plant and the duties that would be performed on the job. Waiting for offer now & hoping.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Alcon in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    One on one interview with 5 people ranging from junior to senior level. Interviewing went right through lunch with no lunch break. Make sure to take a snack. Last portion of interview involved tour of manufacturing area. Good time to remember all that you have researched about the company to keep the conversation rolling with the interviewer.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the interviewers gave me an electrical circuit to analyze. As I did not realize I would have to troubleshoot down to the component level I stumbled a few times during this phase of the interview. If I had known ahead of time I would have brushed up on transistor theory. Also, be able to explain near and far field diffraction.   Answer Question
