Product Engineer Interview

Product Engineer
Boise, ID

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Micron Technology in October 2013.

Interview Details – I was first contacted after an on-campus career fair by a recruiter and I had an interview on campus the next day. The interview there was one on one and I was asked a lot of technical questions and also a few questions about what I thought about micron. I was told to apply online for the job and did so. I received an email about setting up an on-site interview that they would want to do within 10-15 days over a period of 2-3 days. I was unable to do within that time but was able to schedule something about 3 weeks out. They also asked for references at this time as well as whether I would like to do a tour of Boise with a realtor that works closely with Micron. Once the date was set up an itinerary came by email a few days later as well as an email from the realtor setting up the tour. The plane ticket, rental car, and hotel expenses were paid for up-front and I received all of the information about these in the itinerary. They had me come to the headquarters in the morning and I was taken from manager to manager and I was asked mostly technical questions. The interview with each manager was about thirty minutes long and I interviewed with 6 different managers all in the product engineering department. The HR person who took me to and from the department had a folder with my resume in it and this was passed from manager to manager until the HR person came to get me. In this folder each manager added a few papers with the questions they asked and the answers I had given written down. At the end I was taken back to the front desk and then left.

Interview Question – The most unexpected question was to write a program that would take a 3x3 matrix and move around the values. [[1 2 3][4 5 6][7 8 9]] -> [[9 8 7][6 5 4][3 2 1]] like this.   View Answers (5)

Shift Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Employee
Boise, ID

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Micron Technology in August 2009.

Interview Details – The external interview process is simple. A one interview process for entry level positions. The internal process is a bit more complex. Panel interviews to start with, which can tend to be "rapid fire" interviews to see how well you deal with pressure and situations. Following this would be a final one on one interview.

Interview Question – How would you handle "xyz"...before you get to finish your answer, another manager jumps in with another situation that needs attention, followed by another manager with a pressing issue.   Answer Question

Summer Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Micron Technology.

Interview Details – I met one of the recruiters at a dinner my university hosts the day before the career fair. The next day I was able to give the recruiter my resume and was called that night to schedule an interview that week. I was told to expect to hear back from them 2-3 weeks later about whether I have been selected for a job offer. It's been almost two weeks now, so I hope to hear from them soon. I don't think I would have been able to interview with them if I had not met them at the dinner the night before which helped them get to know me. I only say this because when I saw them at the career fair they just took my resume and that was that. They didn't have any questions for me at the fair itself, so I assumed that I wasn't going to get an interview, but I was wrong.

Interview Question – Most of the questions were behavioral based, like to explain the last technical presentation you had and the difficulties you faced with it, or have you ever worked in a group with a difficult individual and how did you deal with them. The most difficult question for me was where I see myself in 5 years, only because I completely forgot to prepare for that question prior to the interview.   Answer Question

Systems Engineer Interview

Systems Engineer
Boise, ID

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Micron Technology in May 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online and got a call for a phone intervew a week later. The phone interview was with two different managers at the same time. A lot of techinical questions were asked because they were just reading a sheet of questions and didn't really care how I answered them. As soon as I answered one they just asked the next one with no regard as to how I answered the previous one. I week later I got a call and was asked to come for an onsite interview. They flew my wife and I out and paid for everything, which was a nice vacation for us. The onsite interview was unprofessional in my opinion. I showed up ontime and was kept waiting in the lobby for 45 min. Then we walked a few miles to the other side of the plant wasting time. The onsite interview lasted about 6 to 7 hours. I interviewed with a different person about every 45 min. They did pay for lunch which was nice. Most of the people I interviewed with were not management at all. They were just people who happen to be on the project that were given a sheet of questions to ask me. The thing that I really found annoying was that 85% of every interview I did that day was exactly the same...I answered the same questions over and over again. Seems like a waste of time to me. The day ended with me talking to one of the bigger bosses. I was told to expect an offer and was praised for how well I did. It turns out they were just blowing smoke. After I finished and flew home I never recieved a call from my recruiter. Not even a courtesy call to let me know I wasn't a right fit for the position. I called him after a few weeks and asked for some feedback so I could improve my interview skills and he said he would call me back. To this day I have never heard back from him. I issue a warning to all who consisder employment from this company...be careful what they tell you because chances are they are just blowing smoke. Out of all the people I saw while I was there doing the onsite interviews the only older looking person was the bigger boss I spoke to at the end of the day. Its not a good sign when you have a large company like Micron who has been around for awhile but doesn't have anybody working there who has been there for more than 10 years. Be careful!

Interview Question – The hardest part was dealing with all the inexperience and answering the same behavioral questions over and over agian all day long.   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Micron Technology.

Interview Details – Be as prepared as possible.

Interview Question – Be prepared to be at the dry erase board drawing graphs, explaining theory, or problem solving.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not have much of a leg to negotiate on, but I did definitely hear of people getting more vacation time, better bonuses structures, and higher wages. It all depends on the amount of experience that you bring to the table.
