    One on one interview with 5 people ranging from junior to senior level. Interviewing went right through lunch with no lunch break. Make sure to take a snack.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the interviewers gave me an electrical circuit to analyze. As I did not realize I would have to troubleshoot down to the component level I stumbled a few times during this phase of the interview. If I had known ahead of time I would have brushed up on transistor theory. Also, be able to explain near and far field diffraction.   Answer Question

    R&D Engineering Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Alcon in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Received an email from Alcon asking me to schedule an interview time with them through my college's jobsite. It was an on-campus interview. I spoke to 2 people separately. I first spoke with an engineer who asked me mostly about points on my resume. He asked what I was most and least confident and comfortable with. Next I spoke to someone from HR, who asked me personality questions: weaknesses, what I am proud of, why I want to work at Alcon, etc.

    I thought things went well, but there were plenty of candidates and I did not get an internship with them.
