    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Agilent Technologies.

    Interview Details

    Process starte with a paper questionnaire, followed by screening from HR, then hiring manager, then face to face interview. To be honest, their interviewing skills were pretty insufficient and they don't vet candidates very well. Focus is on speed of hiring rather than quality of hire. All this said, it was a breeze for someone with understanding of how to sell yourself in the situation.

    Interview Questions
    • To be honest, they didn't ask me anything. They did all the talking about the role, and their jobs. I don't think they knew they were supposed to ask me questions to verify what I claimed on my resume.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Agilent didn't negotiate at all. it was a take it or leave it offer. The person calling to give the offer was not empowered, prepared or even aware negotiations should happen at that point.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Agilent Technologies in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by a Authorized Talent Acquisition Specialist for Agilent Technologies and talked to the specialist for 15 minutes. The specialist sent me a questionnaire which was sent to the hiring manager. I was contacted by Agilent to arrange a date and time to talk to the hiring manager for one hour. After a positive conversation with hiring manager, I was scheduled for four one-hour telephone interviews with others on the team. I was told by all the interviewers, I would be contacted to either schedule face-to-face interviews or would not have additional interviews. Two months later, I have not been contacted by Agilent Technologies. After several email and telephone follow ups, I still have not heard regarding the results of the interviews.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Agilent Technologies.

    Interview Details

    I applied online at Agilent.com. I received an email from the recruiter and he passed my resume on to the hiring manager. The hiring manager aranged a phone interview with me that was very pleasant. My next interview was with one of the senior engineers of the group. It was challenging, but also very pleasant. My final interview was with 5 people, 4 engineers and another manager. Some of the questions and tasks were challenging, but most of it I did good on. I think I could have done better, but my enthusiasm for the position helped. Prepare for your interview by reviewing your coarse work and relax. Be enthusiastic and confident about your skills. Finally, be honest on your resume and don't say you know something if you don't. They will test you on your resume and if you can't do what you say, you won't be hired. All of the people that interviewed me were very friendly and fair.

    Interview Questions
    • I can't give away company questions, but some logic questions were asked and I was asked to design a couple of simple algorithyms.   Answer Question
