    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ASML (San Jose, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I ask my friend to refer my resume to the manager. One week later, I got an phone interview. Two weeks later, I got the onsite interview. The interview questions are most about behavior questions. There are some questions about technical stuff. They are not very difficult. I wait for long time for their response for almost two months. I still don't get their reply. They need me to work overthere as soon as possible. But I am not able to do so.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ASML (Wilton, CT) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Met a manager at a college career fair. Applied for the position online, and later got a call from a Monster recruiter. A few weeks later I was invited down to Wilton, where I spoke to a number of controls and mechatronics engineers. Most of the interviews were casual and involved technical discussions of my research and about ASML's machines.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at ASML (Wilton, CT) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Got the interview through Monster recruiting (got a phone screen rather than me applying for it through website). Filled out online application then HR contact scheduled interviews. Met with a variety of people from Finance to General Manager/VP. Was a little confusing in that it seemed like they were trying to push me to one position over another depending who I talked to in my interview. Interviewers were personable though I could tell that the main person (VP/GM) wanted someone with industry experience. Also, add an extra half hour to your commute over there as the routes sometimes get unexpectedly congested even in the middle of the day; such is the traffic into that area (Wilton, CT).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at ASML in June 2013.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a third party recruiter about a month after applying to the position. A month later I was called in for an all day interview where I met with 8 different people. Most of the questions were either technical or about my past experience. A lot of the interviewers had me draw concepts/solve problems on paper.
