    Interview

    4 people, 4 hours on site after 30 min. college interview. Questions were behavioral based. I believe a few analytical/engineering-related questions would have been better. One person didn't even use his form.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Hemlock Semiconductor (Hemlock, MI).

    Interview

    I worked thru a recruiter and since I lived in town, they skipped the phone int, and went to the iin-person (4 hrs/ 4 people) They used exclusively behavioral interview questions. No serious technical challenge questions. Pretty standard fare of questions that most big corporations would ask. "Can you work under pressure", "Why do you want to work here", "What are your biggest accomplishments", ... etc etc

    Interview Questions

    • "Can you give an example of something you did that you would like to go back and un-do"... if you haven't prepared for that, it can catch you off guard   Answer Question

    They wouldn't budge on salary, but will move on vacation time

    Interview

    Series of 3 interviews with manager and lead engineer of the group. Standard STAR questions focusing on experience, and touching on technical areas without violating any non-disclosures.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really surprised me, but I went through a lot of interviews. If you've had a few engineering interviews then there shouldn't be any shockers. Perhaps, "The most difficult person you had to work with" was one that was tricky for me   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations were made

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Hemlock Semiconductor (Hemlock, MI) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter who gave me about a 30 minute phone interview. After this, I was scheduled for an on-site interview which lasted approx. four hours and consisted of one on one interviews with three different people and then another hour where I was interviewed three on one. The interview was a standard, straight out of the book STAR behavior interview where interviewers asked questions from a standard list they each had. Many of the questions were redundant and varied greatly in terms of what they asked from chemical safety to work organization to technical skills. If you practiced for this type of interview, it should not be a problem. The interviewers were very professional and committed to their jobs. I was very prepared for my interview and it went well and was told the same. In the end, the job went to someone with an internal referral and I learned later that I was probably cannon fodder to satisfy requirements that so many people were interviewed for the position. I was very disappointed because I don't really think I was ever really considered for the job.
