    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Keyence in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter who encouraged me to apply online. Then received an email asking me to complete a basic physics aptitude test. After passing that I was given a phone interview. A week later I was asked to do a personality interview and then a video interview. I never heard back after that.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Keyence in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    After taking a test which was mostly general physics comprehension type questions, I was called for an initial phone interview, to be conducted via web cam. The technical quality on Keyence's end was laughable and I realized it was likely not going to end well. The interviewer apologized for the poor quality but it was very disappointing. The interviewer appeared to be about 25 years old and his assistant, who sat quietly, looked even younger. The interviewer struggled a bit with English and appeared a bit uncomfortable/ill-prepared. Overall it was a disappointing experience for a company with a good reputation.

    Interview Questions
    • Greatest difficulty was overcoming poor technical connection on Keyence's side. No question was difficult, although I struggled later to understand how any of the question pertained to my ability to analyze and overcome technical challenges in a work environment, unless their crappy web cam was the real test!   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Keyence in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted to take an online technical skills test. Mainly physics type questions. Then was told I passed and got a phone interview. From the phone interview I was offered a Skype interview. Thought that all interview processes went well. Didn't hear from the company for almost 3 weeks when I received an email saying that I had not been chosen. Drawn out process and they leave you waiting for a long time in between steps.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Keyence in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied to the job through the school I was attending. Told through email that I passed a phone interview (which I never had) and provided with a link to take some assessment tests, which a 10-year-old could have passed. About 2 weeks after the assessment tests were finished, I was contacted once again for a 1:1. I live quite a distance from the interview location, so we scheduled an interview through Adobe Connect.

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Keyence in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was a one-on-one interview, which was fairly easy. It consisted of having a conversation about my interests as well as demonstrating the ability to problem solve and ask numerous questions. The next step was a Keyence Career Day with several candidates and sales managers present. There were various activities throughout the day, such as a group strategy discussion, practice sales pitch to a group of 3 sales managers, and a panel interview to finish the day.
