Sales Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Nichia in April 2013.
Interview Details – I submitted my resume and was contacted by HR within 2 days. The initial interview (via phone) was with an HR representative and lasted 1.5 hours. She was a very professional and cordial person. The second interview was also a phone interview but this time it was with the hiring manager. The interview lasted about a half hour. It was more of a getting to know you interview. The last interview was on site and lasted about 2 hours. I had to give a 10 minute technical presentation and 1/2 hour math test. The math test was made up of some basic math questions and word problems. The rest of the time was devoted to the panel interview.
I would have given the whole interview process with Nichia a thumbs up if it wasn't for one of the interviewers who I found to be condescending, rude and very unprofessional.

LED Sales Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Nichia in March 2010.
Interview Details – Very frustrated after the initial interview, felt like I wasted alot of time. I have an engineering background, but it appeared they were looking for more of an Electrical Engineer which I wasn't. Products can be taught, and they dont seem to understand that.
