Design Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Greenpoint Technologies in April 2012.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter from Greenpoint Technologies via monster.com. I was sent a generic "Found your resume and wanted to know if you would be interested in interviewing for a design engineer position".
I replied to their email stating interest and gave my phone number. They called me back the same day asking if I had time to talk for a few minutes. They asked me a few questions about current employment and job responsibilities as well as salary requirements.
I threw out a number almost without thinking it through on what it would take for me to be interested. They quickly said the salary requirement was within range and set up a time for a face-to-face interview.
The following week was my interview which I thought went very well. I had a tentative offer letter in my inbox within the hour.

Negotiation Details – There was little to no negotiation phase. I tried to get sign on bonus and additional vacation, both were declined. The original number I threw out to "get me interested" was accepted too easily and left me feeling like I should have asked for more money
