Account Manager/Inside Sales Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at MA Laboratories (San Jose, CA) in August 2013.
First I had a short phone interview, the recruiter asked about my previous work experience. Then I went in for an onsite interview, I spoke with HR and one of the account managers where I elaborated on my work experience. Pretty easy interview.
I did not get a very good vibe when I first entered the building I should of trusted my gut and never should have come back for a second interview. The recruiter was very nice, but she seemed very unorganized. Everyone who interviewed me asked me the same standard questions. Also, the security guard who greeted me at the font desk was extremely rude.

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at MA Laboratories (San Jose, CA) in December 2012.
The HR called me and said she came across my resume. I had the first phone screen interview with the HR in December, 2012. Then the on-sight first interview with the HR and the HR Manager a couples of days later. The questions are very general interview questions, starting off with "tell me about yourself" and discuss the work I'm doing.
I was excited to know I get the interview opportunity and send the thank you note after the interview. A week or so later, I email my follow up letter with the HR, however, I didn't get anything back form her. I thought the interview went quite well and I actually had similar and relevant work experience. Don't know why they had this 180 attitude change.

I applied through college or university. The process took a day – interviewed at MA Laboratories (San Jose, CA) in January 2012.
Came in for an interview. Interviewer was late. It was a conversation, nothing too hard. The thing that struck me the most was odd was that he asked me what language I spoke in my household and what my parents did for a living. Pretty sure that is illegal. They called me back for a 2nd interview to speak to the VP. I declined as I had accepted another offer and this place seemed sketchy. Most employees seem to be middle-age females, Chinese speaking majority. I actually heard of a few recent grads who quit after a month or two after actually taking the job and am glad I did not.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at MA Laboratories (Atlanta, GA) in April 2011.
The process began with an interview with the branch manager. this was at just an hour and at times she was very hard to understand. Overall she outline the job and the company and gave broad strokes about what to expect. Was very evasive about benefit costs and specifics.
Second interview was with the Sales Manager and was very short and brief. Sort of a wasted trip.
Last one was done over video conference. The HR people in San Jose were 1/2 hour late and even harder to understand.

They really were not cooperative.
If they had been honest about benefit costs...
