    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Applied Materials.

    Interview

    Rushed me to on-site interview, gave only a few days notice.
    Lots of logic questions.
    Had to do a presentation.
    Very nice people.
    Contacted by HR a week or so later to move to the next step of the hiring process, asked for consent to background checks, etc.
    Waited a very very long time (more than a month) for the offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Applied Materials (San Jose, CA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Phone intervew + Face-to-face interview, 1-2 weeks for decision. The process is not universal, depends on the department doing the hiring. In general interview is with as many members (your likely future colleagues) that the hiring manager can round up. In general no less than two person interviewing you. HR may not necessarily be involved in interviewing - again it depends on the department performing the hiring. The hiring manager or one or few of your future colleagues may take you for lunch. Interviewing style changes with the person who is interviewing you.

    Negotiation

    There is no one standard answer, each department is different.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Applied Materials in May 2014.

    Interview

    day 1 - before you will get the interview, you will need to pass a half day of group dynamic. It is just some group missions and they want to see how you work in a group and what you have to say.
    day 2 - Then you will move on to an interview with the hiring manager. few talks about your self and they will explain you about the company and the job. After that you will be asked for some logical question... nothing to difficult.
