    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Lam Research in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was very straight forward. I had the chance to talk about my experience and to pick the brain of the interviewer. I was very comfortable. More interviews should go this way. It was held at the Hyatt on Merrit BLVD.

    Interview Details

    Interview process consisted of a phone screening with HR, a phone interview with the hiring manager and then an on-site interview with 3 of team members, each an hour long. The interview questions spanned a your average swath of cs trivia: deadlock, threads, message passing, advanced data structures. I was shown a piece of code and told find the errors. There were basic logic puzzles as well.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Lam Research in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    HR contacted me to set up an HR phone interview. My resume was on file and seemed to match the job description very well. Phone interview was about 20 minutes. They said they would speak to the manager of the group and get back to me about setting up an on-site interview. Unfortunately I didn't get the onsite interview.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lam Research in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    During 25 minute phone interview with contract recruiter, he asked simple straight forward questions while typing my responses to forward to hiring manager. Second interview with hiring manager lasted 20 or so minutes. He posed a fictitious product and asked for my design process for product. My response and interview was good enough to be asked back for in-person interview. I met with 5 members of team in low pressure environment. Was asked to describe my biggest, favorite, successful project from a design perspective. Another member posed a sample product spec and asked what type of design details I would implement. Another member asked some fundamental engineering principle questions such as deflection of beam (steel vs. alum) and mass suspended on spring deflection questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Was asked to describe my biggest, favorite, successful project from a design perspective. I was not prepared for this question. I had lots of examples of projects and problems-solved related to Lam's products, but the interviewer could not believe that the projects I was talking about were "my biggest" or "most successful".   Answer Question
