    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at KLA-Tencor in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    submitted resume on line.
    phone interviewed with a recruiter for 45 minutes, and got invited for onsite interview.
    onsite interview began very early, with a presentation. the interview coordinator forgot to inform me about the presentation. I found some inconsistency in the interview schedule, and asked for clarification. Then she told me I need to give presentation, just 2 day before the interview, so I spent quite a bit time on it, that was probably not a good use of my time right before the interview.
    1:1 interview with 6 people, each lasted for 40 minutes.

    Interview Questions
