    Contract Attorney Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at JDSU (Milpitas, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I had two back-to-back interviews with senior management. Both were conducted over the phone. They didn't really ask me many questions so much as described the role. They were in need of someone quickly, and wanted to ensure my personalty was a good fit. The two interviews were 30 minutes each, and a decision was made a few hours later.

    Interview Questions

    • As stated, they didn't really ask questions. They explained the role and wanted me to ask my questions. I asked about company culture, who I'd be working with, potential for the position to expand beyond expected, type of work I'd be doing, etc. They did ask about my expectation of the role, but did not inquire as to my skill-set; I suppose my resume experience proved sufficient.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JDSU (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interview started be email asking about availability for phone interview. Phone interview was scheduled and occurred the following week. Interview was successful, however, when recruiter asked what the salary was at previous employer, it was too high. She was going to check with VP HR and also speak to the hiring manager to possibly schedule another interview. Just received email from recruiter if I'm still available and I replied, but have not received response from recruiter. Process by email is slow.

    • Last email from recruiter was a question whether I have found a job or still available.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Interview process was fair and asked questions that pertained to the job. You go in to the interview and you have a board of other Engineers that sit across the table from you and each has a list of question that they ask you. They also ask some personal question to get to know about you outside of work

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

    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.
