Characterization Engineer Interview

Characterization Engineer
Somerset, NJ

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Veeco Instruments in July 2011.

Interview Details – I was first interviewed over the phone by hiring manager. It took about 45 mins and he all he asked were technical questions. Then about two week later I had the onsite interview. It was a panel interview and lasted for about 1.5 hour. Most of the questions were technical questions and were not difficult.

Interview Question – No difficult question   Answer Question

Supply Chain Interview

Supply Chain

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Veeco Instruments.

Interview Details – Phone interview then one on one interviews face to face. I did receive a phone call after the interview process after 7:00 pm which wasn't acceptable. The first phone interview took a little over an hour. The panel interview was one person at a time which made it a little less stressful.

Interview Question – I was also asked if I had a significant other because they wanted to make sure I just didn't want the job because I needed it. Very odd and unethical.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was happy with what was offered

Electrical Engineer Intern Interview

Electrical Engineer Intern
Plainview, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Veeco Instruments in January 2011.

Interview Details – If you are called in for an interview you have to go to their site in Plainview for approximately four hours. There you will meet with Human Resources and several people from the departments that you are related to (i.e. if you are an electrical engineer you will meet an EE and if you have mechanical background too you will also meet an ME). They will go through your resume and then just talk to you, barely asking any technical questions. You will also get to go to the clean room and look around at the tools that they manufacture.

Interview Question – But, will you like what you do?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Do not place a number down in the form that asks how much you would like to get pay. It doesn't hurt to ask for more money. They are very stubborn in this aspect though
