    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at KLA-Tencor (Chennai (India)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was not as simple as expected. There was an image processing round in which a team of employees came and explained a topic in image processing which they have been using in their company. This was followed by a set of questions based on that topic. In this way they made sure that they select who think on their feet.
