    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at JDSU in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Using a recruiter, I got to meet with the Sales Manager for a face to face interview. They have your resume on hand for reference, so it's really your personality that can set you apart from the rest. Be excited (don't fake it), show you really are interested in sales.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at JDSU in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is a minimal three part process. First interview via telephone from an HR person and the second one is from the Manager via the telephone. The third interview is in person with the Manager. The HR person asked a couple of odd questions I thought that had nothing to do with the process, but nothing against the law.

    Interview Questions
    • There really were no difficult questions, just I feel unprepared interviewer almost as if the person had not read my resume or didn't recall it.   Answer Question

    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milpitas, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at JDSU in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process started with an online job application submission for the role. I was then contacted my a recruiter via email and phone to schedule a time to speak. We spoke for over an hour. The recruiter was very concerned that I came off as dry via telephone and didn't appear to be interested in the role. I had actually applied to a manager level role a couple months prior and the recruiter stated that she was concerned that I was just applying to this role out of necessity and would soon quit. Anyway after a lot of pacifying the recruiter I was contacted by a second person from HR who had a better relationship with the hiring manager. This person coached me to be more lively and excited as thats what the hiring manager was seeking. A few day later I spoke to the hiring manager via telephone. It was a standard background review with a few technical questions. She told me that I seemed qualified but wanted to speak to a few more candidates. At this point I was completely done with the company. However a week or so later the second HR recruiter contacted me to come in a meet with the hiring manager in person. The process would be come in for the hiring manager to "see" me. Potentially followed by a meeting with the hiring manager peers for another visit. And then a final visit with the group senior manager/ executive. There was no way that I was willing to go through 3 more days of interviews after I had already had so many phone interviews. I constantly felt like I had to reassure them and pacify them. It was like when you have an insecure mate constantly accusing you of cheating. They keep stating that I wasn't excited enough, interested enough, and so on that I became completely disinterested in withdrew my application from further consideration
