    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milpitas, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Flextronics in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    2 weeks after applying online I received an email from the technical recruiter whom then sent my info to someone in their shared services center to make an appt for my phone interview.

    The interviewer for the phone interview was late but he apologized. He also cut the interview short because he liked that he can hear my passion for HR even though the phone. I was very excited. He was laid back and all my interactions with him I enjoyed.

    I got to meet with the person who interviewed with me over the phone. He was great to talk to. After I met with the person who if went well I would learn from. She was very professional but all business which of course is understandable.

    Two weeks later on a Monday, I called to do a follow up and she told me she would let me know by the end of the week, Friday. Friday and Monday came, I called and left voicemails and emails, no reply back.

    Today, Tuesday I got an email back from the recruiter that first contacted with me and she told me they extended an Offer on Friday and received an acceptance from someone else on Monday. I found all this out on Tuesday and from someone else.

    Of course I am a bit disappointed, I would have appreciated if the person who interviewed me told me I didn't get the internship and if she had told me why. But I can only learn from this experience.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Flextronics in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had initial interviews through AeroTek staffing and then went to meet 3 managers at FlexTronics. The interviews themselves were pretty easy as I had plenty of experience to articulate. The managers mainly just wanted to see if I could do the job.

    Customer Service Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Owensboro, KY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Owensboro, KY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Flextronics in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was approached via email by one of their recruiters. Had a very pleasant phone screen interview with the recruiter, who scheduled an interview with the local site manager. That's when the process began to go awry. First, the site manager said he didn't know I was coming. He basically painted a picture of burnt out employees not meeting their goals because they were so under-staffed. Then he asked a question concerning my age that was out and out discriminatory. I didn't receive an offer and I'm glad - I left the site planning to decline any offer.

    Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Flextronics in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I got called in twice to their Austin office for face-to-face interviews. The first one was with a senior manager, and the second with the person who I would have reported to had I been offered the job. Both the interviews were behavioral based and I wasn't asked any questions that really threw me off. Two weeks after the second interview, I called my interviewer and was told that although I was more qualified, they went ahead with another candidate because he/she had more suitable past work experiences.

    Senior Director, Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Flextronics in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    The HR department was fast-tracking interviews, so scheduled six interviews over two days upon contact. There was clearly a lack of coordination between those running the interview process and the employees with whom I met. Each of the employees seemed to be sincere, and a couple seemed to be high caliber.

    But there were a few things that were bothersome. First, one of the HR reps was derisive when referencing a former company I'd worked with and some of the policies it had for remote work situations. The response was unprofessional - especially in the Valley, where so many companies offer such arrangements. There were a few other points like this where HR was underwhelming. But one of the bigger issues I had was the lack of responsiveness from the employees when I sent each a personal thank you for their time. Perhaps they just realized I wasn't going to be the guy they hired and they thought they'd save the two minutes; but whatever the case, it was rare for me to not receive at least a brief "ditto - good luck" note back. Anyway - no sour grapes. It wasn't a good cultural fit for me personally (appeared very big, bureaucratic from interviews), and most of those whom I interviewed with seemed capable. Had I received an offer, there's a fair chance I'd have taken it. But I wouldn't have bent over backward to reach terms - it didn't seem like *that* great of a place.
