    IT Security Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    Initial contact was from HR to set up a phone interview with IT director. Interviewer was condescending and seemed disingenuous during the interview. The interviewer was more concerned with asking inappropriate questions regarding my current employer instead of questions regarding my skill set. Overall experience left me to question company's ethics.

    Summer Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    I got the interview through the reference from a school program. I was the last one being interviewed and it lasted for half an hour. The interviewer asked about the company I followed and studied currently. It was a nice and friendly conversation.
    I did not hear from them for three weeks, so I think this position might have been filled.

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Cyberonics in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for this position. Few weeks later, I received a call from the HR manager asking for a phone interview. Most of the questions were related to the resume. He asked some specific questions related to my experience with electronics manufacturing. It appeared to me that the Lead Engineer was disinterested in interviewing me (can't seem to figure out why).

    Interview Questions
    • What is manufacturing yield, questions on C++ and PCB design.   Answer Question

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Cyberonics in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Straightforward technical and development process questions; very easy. No whiteboard code testing, but fairly thorough questioning on previous work and abilities. Verification questions required a bit more thought but nothing too difficult. On site interview took about 6 hours; Cyberonics recruiting is very good; hotel, car, etc were all arranged effortlessly.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe the entire verification process for software (interviewer drilled down through requirements, unit test, design test, etc); very involved multi-layer question.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cyberonics in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Long phone interview along with a detailed in person interview. The interviewers did not understand my speciality and only asked questions that had no relevance to my field or did not ask the right questions in order to evaluate me. The company first sent me an offer via email for somebody else. After that was corrected, the offer was too low.
