I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Clever Devices in March 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process was very quick. The first step is to talk to HR and they helped find a good fit position. Then you are contacted by the manager who has the open req. It was about a 1 hour telephone interview. If the in person interview goes well then an in person half day interview is planned with about 4 different people.

Interview Question – Describe a time you had a problem with a customer and how did yo resolve the problem.   Answer Question

Human Resources Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Durham, NC

I applied online and interviewed at Clever Devices.

Interview Details – Was told I was ideal candidate all along and interview went great. Nice people but was turned down due to rethinking the position on their end. I feel this shows poor organizational and strategy skills as a job should be assessed and planned before an ad is posted listing requirements.

Interview Question – Is this commuting distance form where you live. A prospective employer should know a person would not apply unless they could get there. I have been turned down for commute time before. This should not be a factor. Also was asked what salary I wanted. This may cause you to undersell your talents or price yourself out of the running.   View Answer

Interview Question – What technical background do you have?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was not able to negotiate the salary since I was made bonus eligible, but was able to get three weeks vacation instead of just two.

Senior Researcher Interview

Anonymous Employee
Plainview, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Clever Devices in June 2012.

Interview Details – I was originally contacted by CD's HR representative, who arranged an interview with the VP of Engineering, the VP of Software Quality Control and the Sr. Hardware Designer. Over the course of two days, they asked me to solve in a very general way a few of their difficult engineering problems. They were impressed with my Physics background and analytic skills enough that they created a specific position for me, Sr. Researcher. During a followup interview, I brought a sample of an embedded system I had designed.

I made a point of asking at least twice what other projects I would be working on after coming up with their requested out-of-the-box solutions. Their response was that there would always be projects. This turned out not to be true.

Interview Question – How would I locate a stationary object over 300m to within 2m.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I got the salary I requested. I would tell others that they should consider only listed positions and refuse any specifically created ones.
