Group interview followed with one on one interviews. Gave a presentation and answered questions. It was about my current research. Everyone is very friendly and smart. Questions to the point. They also briefly introduced their group and research, and ask me if I have any question.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview

I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Applied Materials in April 2013.Interview Details
My PhD advisor knows an upper exec at AMAT, so I emailed them directly. He forwarded me to one of his Senior Directors. I mentioned that I was graduating soon and would be visiting the Bay Area, so he asked me to come in and speak with some people. It wasn't officially an interview, but it felt similar. I spoke with 4 senior directors for 30 min each, mostly about technical issues.Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsEvery benefit that I was interested in was already part of the package, so I asked for an additional 5% salary and my counteroffer was accepted an hour later.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Applied Materials in January 2012.Interview Details
I applied long time ago for some positions that I don't remember already. One day, an assistant of the hiring manager contacted me for an on-site interview (without any phone screen). I asked her what position I would be interviewed for and who the hiring manager is since I can't recall any positions that I ever applied for.
On the scheduling part, they kept changing at last minutes, which is not very professional.
As for the on-site interview, all interviewers (directors and managers) were nice and friendly except for the hiring manager. He was rude and picky about my technical background. He kept asking technical questions (sometimes non-relevant ones) to a point that other director stopped him. He never had eye contact with me and never mentioned himself as hiring manager, and left the room in the middle of the interview without notifying me first. Just left and was gone forever - no respect for people.
I have a good impression for the company and its people except for this particular hiring manager.Interview Questions
