Difficult Interview

Associate Test Engineer Interview

Associate Test Engineer

I applied in-person and interviewed at Itron.

Interview Details – I first spoke with an HR representative, who gave me a phone interview. A week later I was invited for an on site interview. I was informed that I was competing with three other individuals for the position. A week after the initial on site interview I was invited for a second interview. The phone interview consisted of some basic questions about work ethic, personality, and my resume. Both on site interviews were very in debt, to a point where I was glad I studied. Many questions about regarding six sigma processes, RF signals, and general failure analysis.

Interview Question – Explain the difficulties and advantages of pursuing six sigma levels of production. Why is six sigma so important? Why not settle for 4 or 3 sigma   View Answer

Software Engineer II Interview

Software Engineer II
Liberty Lake, WA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Itron in March 2013.

Interview Details – Phone and in person interview went well. The phone interview was one hour long and consisted of basic CS101 questions and a review of my resume. The in person interview consisted of more resume review and a technical problem to solve on a whiteboard. Technical team was helpful during the process. I floundered a bit on the question, until i figured out it was a trick question. I was told verbally that I was going to get an offer, a week went by and I recieved no offer. I called and was told that they selected another candidate, lame. Could have at least called me or notified me in person. Poor HR practices.

Interview Question – trick question during interview process.   Answer Question

Finance Manager Interview

Finance Manager
Spokane, WA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Itron in March 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online for the role. was contacted to schedule a phone screening with HR. this was one of the best phone screenings with HR if not the best phone screening with HR that ive ever had. very upbeat, informative, encouraging, up front and he stuck to the deadlines and response times set throughout the process. well too bad the HR rep wasnt the hiring manager. i then had a phone screening with the hiring manager. he was so combative. i felt so uncomfortable speaking to him but looking to remain professional i hung in their instead of hanging up midway throughout the call. he insisted that he wanted to speak to many more candidate and i was probably not the ideal candidate. thanks i thought. i wrote it off within the first few minutes of the phone call. a few weeks later i had accepted another role and low and behold i get a call that the hiring manager wanted to meet in person...

Interview Question – why is your motivation for the role?
why did you leave your last role?
tell me about a time when....
