    I interviewed online - interviewed at Nanometrics.

    Interview Details

    -The employee never gave me a choice on the day or time of the interview so to manage it I cancelled some of my plans.

    -The employee scheduled phone interview twice and although I planned accordingly he never called. It would have been nice to receive a heads up so that I don't sit and wait for a call. Eventually I emailed that person and I asked him if he wants to interview me. So on the third attempt he finally called with 40 minutes delay!

    -It would have been nice to receive an apology from him but unfortunately he was quite rude.

    -The questions were basically what I call as private life issues as they were related to non-technical choices I have taken in life.These questions made me quite uncomfortable and no matter how hard I tried to make the interview more technical I was unsuccessful.

    Applications Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Nanometrics in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was typical for an engineer position in which the interviewers asked background information, technical questions, and some personality-involved questions. It lasted half a day (~4 hours) as you meet with 5-6 people. The interview also ran into lunchtime.

    Granted the director of the Applications group was also part of the interview process, it is not suggested as his perspective on the hiring is different from the hiring manager. He added more pressure to the interview and included some belittlement to the interviewer.
