Interview Question – They will ask about your willingness to work. what this means is are you willing to work unpaid overtime, nights, weekends, and any time something goes wrong without compensation.   View Answer

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Princeton, NJ

I applied through other source and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at NIKSUN in June 2013.

Interview Details – There were several callback interviews which went well and I received an offer. When I tried to negotiate a slightly better salary, the offer was immediately rescinded. I didn't demand a better salary. I simply asked if the company would be willing to consider it, so be forewarned that any attempt at salary negotiation will result in an offer being rescinded.

Interview Question – There was a timed computer based test.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I didn't decline. The offer was rescinded when I tried to negotiate a slightly better salary. Though I may have declined it anyway as I had another offer.
