    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at International Rectifier.

    Interview Details

    My interview process took full day. I was quite surprised to have a daylong interview. Each of the colleagues and senior bosses had a face-face discussion for about one hour. they were asking about the technical details related to the position. Be sure you become familiar with the position before you go to interview. At last I met with HR. I was told that I will be informed of the decision in a week. Good news, I was selected.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at International Rectifier in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied for opportunity online. Contacted a month or so later by recruiter. Phone interview with recruiter followed by phone interview by hiring manager. Then no additional contact. Beware, the firm seems to be very CPA and Big 4 oriented even for internal and management accounting or finance positions.... CPA should only be of value for external reporting and analysis roles....

    Exchange 2010 Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at International Rectifier in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of a one hour block with two persons asking technical questions. The questions lacked depth and proper techniques to access my skill level. The interviewer's did not have good knowledge of their standing AD and email environment. The technology they plan on deploying I've been working with for several years. One short technical interview should not have been a determining factor to my employment.

    Interview Questions
    • These questions were pretty easy and predictable. At no point was I surprised at the questions being asked of me.   Answer Question

    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at International Rectifier in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    The initial phone interview went well and I was asked in for an in person interview. The in person interview was a panel interview with the manager I spoke to on the phone, another manager and the director. The manager asked the other why he was doing the in person interview because he already did the phone interview, and he said that he wanted to make sure the director thought his decision to bring me in was okay. Then when the director came in he didn't smile and wasn't all too pleasant and the two managers kept looking at him for approval and cues on how they should act. It didn't look like a healthy relationship and I think the director didn't trust the managers and probably micromanaged them and the managers looked almost scared of the director. The managers didn't ask questions but the director did all the talking. In the end I was not offered the position because they said my answers were evasive. The director asked me how I calculated NPV at my last job, so I told him the process of how I gathered the revenue stream estimates, expenditures, WACC, and all the rest of the information and the different departments and levels of management I interacted with. He apparently had wanted me to recite the NPV equation for him and because I didn't he decided I was evasive.

    Power Electronics Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Providence, RI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Providence, RI
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at International Rectifier in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter was very helpful in the hiring process. My only telephone interview was with the HR, I wish I had a phone interview with the technical engineering team before meeting them. The in-person interviews were very good but made me realize that it would not be a good match for me or the team. The technical questions were very good. The manager as well as the rest of the team made me feel home. I was not very keen on Providence, Rhode Island but the visit to the office and conversations with the team went a long way.

    Reasons for Declining

    It was not a good fit for my specific career interests. I was interested in high power applications, and the group was low power products.
