Buyer I Interview

Buyer I
Austin, TX

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Applied Materials in May 2014.

Interview Details – I applied on my university career portal and started to get e-mails. Then they set up the interview date after graduation. They flew us in and provided hotel accommodations and reimbursed us for food and taxi fares. They were hiring 4/8 candidates and interviewed us twice each, one by one. Still waiting to hear back from them, since it has not yet been two weeks.

Interview Question – One of the interviewers seemed to be asking the same questions over and over, just in different words.   View Answer

Supply Chain Manager Interview

Supply Chain Manager
Austin, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Applied Materials in March 2013.

Interview Details – First Round - Phone Interview. Standard questions regarding resume and experiences. Special interest in ability to work with large data sets as well as visibility to csuite and vendor partners.

Secound Round - In person group interview. The firm DID NOT provide for travel expenses. The interview time was changed on the prior day. The expectation was a series of individual interviews. Instead it was a group interview including adjoining resources Finance etc. At the end of the second round I was asked to prepare a presentation at an appropriate management level for future presentation via Skype.

Following delivery via email of the presentation I have had no response from the firm.
The presentation was never given via Skype etc.

Interview Question – Very difficult to provide answers which addressed all cross functional business groups.
Reconsider the need to provide a future presentation, rather than perhaps using a timed exercise to "complete" the process in an extended session.

Program Manager Interview

Program Manager
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Applied Materials in February 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring manager left a voice message and asked to schedule a 1 hour phone interview. When I called to confirmed, I agreed to make it a face to face on a day when he was in town. One week later, I had the interview. It lasted one hour and we talked in the employee common room. It was large, so there was a sense of privacy. I did not see the work environment or offices. The other employees were dressed business casual. This position was to fill in for an employee who had been promoted or transferred to another department.

Interview Question – Describe your experience with consolidating major systems into one.   Answer Question
