    One-on-one Interview with the Director of Engineering, who would be the supervisor for the position. The interview included in-depth discussion of my qualifications, technical skill-set and experience, and details on several projects. Moving to company product literature, was able to discuss some technical design details and provide some indication of good alignment with the job requirements. After the interview proper, was introduced to several members and have some one-on-one interaction with them. Overall comfortable, small-company setting.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Linear Corporation (Casnovia, MI).

    Interview

    The tech support manager was previously a sales person in another industry. The interview was simple. He based his assessment on my resume and qualifications. The position was not to be filled for another six to eight weeks. During my follow up i was extended the offer. IT wasn't negotiable and I was lead to believe with a good performance monetary increases would follow. Linear maintains a cap on salaries in this position now matter how hard you work or how high you perform.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I accepted less than what I asked for but was lucky to have found a position in the economy of 2009 in Michigan.
