    Human Resources Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Clever Devices (Durham, NC).

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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.   2 Answers

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Clever Devices (Plainview, NY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • How would I locate a stationary object over 300m to within 2m.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Clever Devices (New York, NY) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online and was sent a lengthy questionnaire, which took many hours to complete. The interview was conducted via phone, and the director was rather rude. The first question she asked was if I was comfortable with traveling over 40% of the time. I told her I was not, and asked her where in the job post it mentioned travel. Needless to say, that was the extent of the conversation. Be careful of companies who are not transparent and waste peoples' time.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Clever Devices in March 2012.

    Interview

    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.
