Very Easy Interview

Field Applications Engineer Interview

Field Applications Engineer
Boston, MA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Arrow Electronics in January 2012.

Interview Details – Interview and hiring process went very smoothly and it was only a single interview. I'm guessing it was because they thought I was a great match and was just going through the formal process. I also think they were rushed because they had a deadline date to meet and they were aware of the competing offer on the table.

Interview Question – There were really nothing difficult nor unexpected that stands out.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Offer is negotiable if you feel you have a strong hand and they want you.

Difficult Interview

Engineering Interview

Engineering
Denver, CO

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Arrow Electronics.

Interview Details – I applied to Arrow for an internship position and they said they were setting up an internship program for the first time. They came to our campus and gave a generic marketing video to try and get recruits. They took a long time between any correspondence and when I finally took the interview it was a bit nerve wracking. It was a four on one interview where I was given a dry erase marker and whiteboard while I was asked technical questions while four engineers asked questions while I was working through problems. It was chaotic to say the least. I never heard back from them. I trying to leave messages at the numbers on their business cards but none of them had voice-mail set up and they never responded to any emails. I was quite surprised because they were all complements during the interview.

Interview Question – Solve a circuit analysis problem with op-amps and solve for current, voltage and resistance equations at all points on the circuit.   View Answer
