    Manufacturing Technician Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation (Portland, OR) in July 2015.

    Interview

    First interview was with a panel of 3, and took place at Portland State University. Apparently they interviewed 30 people that day and called back 25. I was asked 5 behavioral questions and 5 technical questions from some sort of interview manual. I had to ask for some time to answer some of the behavioral questions and royally screwed up a couple of the technical questions (even though they were easy), but I still got a call back the next day for a second interview. For the second interview, I met with 3 different managers and interviewed with each of them individually at Ronler Acres. Second interview consisted of some more behavioral questions, as well as questions like "Tell me about yourself", and "Why did you choose to become a math major?". Definitely felt like more of a conversation than the first interview. After 3 weeks, they extended me an offer.

    Interview

    Intel was visiting my school. Handed over my resume at their interview session and got an interview call next day. Was an hour long chat with the recruiter. He asked mostly behavioral questions and about what I do in my research. He spoke a lot about the position and the environment in the company and how I need to adapt myself to the environment if I get selected. He said he would send me an email and let me know the outcome of the interview in four days.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume at a job fair and was contacted when a position opened several months later for a phone interview. Phone interview lasted ~45 minutes and was mostly behavioral questions and an introduction to the job tasks. I was invited for a site visit a few weeks later and did a full day interview with multiple current employees as well as a research presentation. Half of the interviews were pleasant and mostly focused on behavioral questions. The other half were very difficult, consisting of lots of high-stress questions about problem solving and technical questions about coursework from graduate school. I imagine their purpose was to push me to my intellectual limit and to see how I handled stress. Several people talked about the constant stress of the job and how tricky it was to maintain work/life balance. They did not make it seem like a desirable job, especially given how demanding it was.

    Interview Questions

    • Given a basic description of a machine/tool and a scenario (i.e. this readout isn't working), how would you go about fixing it?   Answer Question
