    Internal Applications Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Agilent Technologies (Englewood, CO) in January 2013.

    Interview

    First and second round interviews are likely to over the phone or online meeting client. Questions are very quiz-like and will test your knowledge of basic concepts regarding your type of applications engineering position. The engineers interviewing me over the phone were friendly and accommodating. They asked a mix of quiz-like questions and behavioral ones, and gave me ample opportunity to ask them questions too. One of their higher level managers, at a college recruiting session was much more focused on stumping me than learning about me. That is fine, but his attitude felt much different from the other engineers I had talked to on the phone previously and afterwards.

    Field Repair Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Agilent Technologies (Wilmington, DE) in May 2012.

    Interview

    This was in response to an Agilent website career opening. I had a short 15 minute phone interview with the hiring manager which covered my interests and background. This led to an interview appointment for the same week. Interview at company was split into 45 minute segments: a panel interview with 3 staff members which covered technical knowledge and interests. Although the hiring manager knew before hand that I had no experience maintaining the specific product, she continued this segment. Second half was a personality interview with 3 other staff members. Various situations were presented for me to comment on, along with personality questions. Both segments were done in a conversational format. I left the interview with the feeling that I didn't meet their immediate requirements.

    Reasons for Declining

    salary was much lower than i expected. manager had a tendency of contacting me in the late hours of night and called multiple times which seemed very unprofessional. main reason i declined, however, was it was a work at home position. i was looking for something more engineering oriented and camaraderie of working with others in office/lab setting.
