    Interview

    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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at International Rectifier (El Segundo, CA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    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....

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at International Rectifier (Tempe, AZ) in May 2012.

    Interview

    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
