I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Corning in April 2014.
Phone interview scheduled within one week of resume submission. Got invited for on-site interview. Offer not generated yet. Some questions on failure analysis, mechanical testing and simulation using FEA software e.g. ANSYS and ABAQUS for brittle materials. Initially, it will be a contract position for few months before getting converted to full time. That is the company norm.

I applied through other source. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Corning (New York, NY) in April 2014.
Overall it was a great experience and it wasn't a hard process at all. Just be prepared for any behavioral question and be ready to explain each bullet point on your resume in depth. Everyone was real friendly. Just remember you must have what the company needs if you made it to the interview process. I hope this helps!

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Corning (Corning, NY) in March 2014.
I was called by the HR staff to set a phone interview with hiring manager. Hiring manager described general responsibilities of the position, asked me about my experiences and some questions to make sure I really know what I talk about. Two week later, I got an email from HR that said hiring manager would like to have me in Corning for an onsite interview. The onsite interview took a whole day total. First, I presented my work for an hour to a group of 10-15 managers and employees. Later, I met with them individually and each asked some questions about my work. I also got a chance to ask them some questions about Corning and if they like it there. I think the interview went really well on my side. Hiring manager was supposed to let me know in two weeks about the outcome of my interview and their decision, but unfortunately he never contacted me or responded to my emails. After interview, I sent him a thank you message and inquire about their decision a couple week after, but no response. I was not even contacted by a HR person about the outcome of the interview.
