    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Cree.

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted by a staff member in HR. Was told I had 3 days to complete a 25 question pre-screening questionnaire. Returned it on the 3rd day and within the hour of sending it I was contacted by a research manager. We set up a phone interview where he asked questions about my background and what other companies I had heard from. Told me that I should hear within a week if I had made it to the second round. Still waiting.

    Phone interview was very hard but not because of the questions but because he had me on speaker and there was a lot of noise and static. I told him but he just said :ah!. I had to ask him to repeat the question many times; I fee it was rude.

    LED Chip Product Integration Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Cree in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Overall process was a little disorganized. They would commit to deadlines, then drop contact for 6 or 8 weeks before randomly resuming. I applied through their website, and they contacted me by email about a month later to set up a phone interview. At the end of the phone interview, the interviewer said he would be in touch in a week. After ~6 weeks (and numerous follow-up emails), they requested another phone interview. They then brought me for an onsite interview 3 weeks later. The onsite consisted of a 45 minute candidate presentation followed by 9 one-on-one interviews. The product engineering team took me out to lunch, but that quickly turned into another grilling. Finally, they took me out to dinner (a good sign according to my hotel concierge). They committed to get back to me within a week. I didn't hear anything (despite emails) for ~3 weeks. Finally, they decided not to extend an offer, no reasons where given despite follow-up requests.
