Intern Interview

Intern
San Jose, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Flextronics in May 2013.

Interview Details – I initially approached Flextronics through one my university's career fairs. Roughly two weeks later, I was contacted through email to set up an initial phone call (regarding personality, characteristics, minor questions about why I was interested). I felt the phone call went well - 1 week later, I was contacted to set up an onsite interview. This meeting consisted of three 30-45 minute interviews with different members of the team. Each of these interviews varied slightly due to the different roles these team members played. There were brief conversations about personality/characteristics, but the majority of each of these conversations were much more technical (i.e. relevant skills, past experience, relevant coursework/projects). At the end of the three interviews, I was escorted to the lobby and went on my way.

Interview Question – Unexpected: How could I utilize work experiences (unrelated to job I was interviewing for) to help me succeed.

Most Difficult: Explain in-depth relevant projects from courses. How would I go about it differently?

Customer Service Coordinator Interview

Customer Service Coordinator
Memphis, TN

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Flextronics in December 2011.

Interview Details – The interview was ok. Although security sent me to the wrong door twice. The questions were on point and the 2 that interviewed me looked like they were normal people. It really was not a stressful setting but extra extra noisy. I grew to appreciate that noise in the future but all and all the interview process is short and the people are awesome.

Interview Question – What do you know about Flextronics?   View Answer

Buyer Interview

Buyer

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Flextronics.

Interview Details – Easy interview process. Initially had a phone interview with the HR coordinator, during which basic behavioral and experience questions were asked ("Can you explain in more detail what you accomplished during your term as a XXX at YYY Company?"). About a week later, I had an interview with the hiring manager and it was pretty much the same, but more focused on what my opinions were on supply chain/inventory management, what I wanted to accomplish, etc.. There were no technical or situational questions asked.

Interview Question – Give an example of a time you made a mistake? What did you learn from this experience?   Answer Question

Senior Director, Marketing Interview

Senior Director, Marketing
San Jose, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Flextronics in September 2012.

Interview Details – The HR department was fast-tracking interviews, so scheduled six interviews over two days upon contact. There was clearly a lack of coordination between those running the interview process and the employees with whom I met. Each of the employees seemed to be sincere, and a couple seemed to be high caliber.

But there were a few things that were bothersome. First, one of the HR reps was derisive when referencing a former company I'd worked with and some of the policies it had for remote work situations. The response was unprofessional - especially in the Valley, where so many companies offer such arrangements. There were a few other points like this where HR was underwhelming. But one of the bigger issues I had was the lack of responsiveness from the employees when I sent each a personal thank you for their time. Perhaps they just realized I wasn't going to be the guy they hired and they thought they'd save the two minutes; but whatever the case, it was rare for me to not receive at least a brief "ditto - good luck" note back. Anyway - no sour grapes. It wasn't a good cultural fit for me personally (appeared very big, bureaucratic from interviews), and most of those whom I interviewed with seemed capable. Had I received an offer, there's a fair chance I'd have taken it. But I wouldn't have bent over backward to reach terms - it didn't seem like *that* great of a place.
