Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Maxim Integrated in May 2010.

Interview Details – Three phase interview process starting with employee of similar position; then supervising manager and finally human resources personnel. Fail to understand such process as ultimately 99% of weight is on direct manager supervisor decision. That said I made sure to cater subservience, agreement, comradery, understanding of vision with management lead.

Interview Question – Questions related personal values.   View Answer

Senior Electronic Technician Interview

Senior Electronic Technician
Dallas, TX

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Maxim Integrated.

Interview Details – Job fair back when the company went looking for quality people to man their production and facility. That has now been reduced to being hired through a job placement service hired by Maxim.. The big lie is that temporarily employees will be made permanent in 6 months. 2 years and they wait and wait now. Most just give up and walk away. Very sad.

Interview Question – None, I was hired into a position I had mastered. There was no question they could ask that I couldn't answer beyond their understanding. Had more qualifications than the people interviewing me.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – FED EX delivery offer the next day. Pay was where I left off,at my old job (fair treatment) That was then, this is now. Hiring and pay are done through an agent and there is no negotiating. Take it or leave it. There's 100 others where you came from.

Associate Customer Operations Interview

Associate Customer Operations

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Maxim Integrated in July 2012.

Interview Details – Applied through the company website, but only received interview after emailing the director.

I was interviewed by 4 employees. The first two were congenial and answered my questions fully and to the best of their ability. The third interview was harsh. I felt that he had predetermined his opinion of me, and his comments skewed towards being negative and dismissive. He was professional, but openly annoyed. One aspect I found to be troubling was his interest in making sure the previous interviewers explained things appropriately, almost in a gotcha way.

The last interview was by the director. He was kind, and asked thoughtful questions about my college job, and how those skills transfer.

Interview Question – All the questions asked were typical.   Answer Question
