    Interview Details

    Two rounds of interviews, had coffee and a snack at the end of the second interview with three managers. Had to negotiate up from the minimum salary they thought I would accept. Was allowed to give ample notice to former employer, although they were in a panic to hire someone with my knowledge.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Newport in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I first met the HR representative at my school career fair. I told her my research interests and she said that I would be a good candidate for some of the projects at Newport Corporation, so I handed in my resume to her.

    I tried to follow up by calling and contacting her through email. However, I didn't hear back for about two months.

    She finally called me out of the blue to let me know of my qualifications as a possible intern for the summer. Unexpected, but we arranged to set up an interview with the professionals who would oversee and tend to my interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Newport in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    the interview process was time consuming and required my consistent prodding to find out what the next steps were. Their seemed to be poor organizational management with timing and explaining what the job duties would consist of, what metrics were in place to measure success, and any type of description on relevant work experience as it related to the position.
