Nova Measuring Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Logistics Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Nova Measuring in March 2011.
Interview Details – Contacted their recruiter with my resume and a description of my experiences and followed up with a phone call. He provided much helpful information in this first call, then set up the interview for me. Then the time came, I arrived at their small office in the back of a high-tech office complex near the Great America theme park; the interview involved meeting three of the key staff, answering questions from them about my background in logistics, and myself asking questions about what was expected, what they look for in a candidate, some details about how they operate, etc. I got excellent feedback from everyone before and after the interview; I was there 2 1/2 hours! The final round was a video interview with their HQ in Rehovot; their questions were tough as nails, but all spot-on. The recruiter called me to let me know I'd be receiving an offer the same day as the video conference.
It's worth noting that the benefits package is absolutely outstanding. They certainly seem to expect a lot of their employees, but they compensate them for their sacrifices, too. That's why I chose this offer as my favorite out of the three that I received.

Algorithms Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Nova Measuring.
Interview Details – A friend passed my CV along and I was contacted by the HR person to schedule the interview. There were three technical 1:1 interviews and an HR interview. The technical interviews were more about mathematical and technical knowledge (linear algebra, machine learning). The HR interview was mostly about personal qualities. Overall, the process was very fast, although it is a big company and the people I met were all nice.
