I applied online. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at InPhenix (Livermore, CA) in October 2011.
Submitted job application to HR. Within one week, a hiring manager sent me an email, including five design/manufacturing issues and asked me for solutions. After I gave her my best solutions, she bounced back more questions (8 in total) and asked me more technical details and explanation. After I gave her what she was looking for, I was invited for on-site interview. On-site interview started with a written test, then was focused on technical/manufacturing solutions, a lot of questions about design/processing/testing.
After nearly 3 hours interview, I finally realized the hiring manager was not interested in me as a job applicant. What she really wanted was solutions for her products, processing, and design. 2 days after that interview, she sent me 7 more technical questions and asked my answers (which was annoying and ridiculous). I never answered her email again. Ironically, two weeks later, HR called me and would like to offer me the position.
- I was shocked, during the whole application & interview process, they constantly asked for product IP, design/process details, some times trade secrets of other companies. I guess it is how this company steal other companies, often time, competitors' information. 2 Answers
Reasons for Declining
They treated me like an information source rather than a human being. I kept wondering, once they got all the information from me, what will happen to me next?
