I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at OSI Systems in February 2013.
Interview Details – Got into a phone conversation with the engineering director, and he was very impressed with my credentials and liked my personality. I flew in to Hawthorne a week later to do an on-site interview, but it was basically just the director showing me around the site, and walk me through a detailed descriptions of the product they were making. It was definitely very eye-opening to see the technologies being employed. I was told by him at the end of the day that I would be given the job, but he has to report to his superior about this.
Two weeks later I was notified that I was not offered the job because the director's superior wanted to hire someone who had more experiences than i did. It was a shame, since I would have gotten the position, if he was given the green light. Still it was a very pleasant experiences to talk to the people there, and the director was very personable and friendly to talk to. All traveling expenses were paid for by them.
The only downside to the whole experiences was the engineering site looked like a dilapidated machine shop with equipments lying all around, and the people working there were pretty much all hourly rate assembly workers. The work environment was definitely sub-par and not sanitized; It was more so like a factory than an office, which I was not expecting.
Interview Question – It was basically just me listening to his breakdown of the product for 5 hours (got into the really technical side of the electronics) Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at OSI Systems in September 2010.
Interview Details – I ran across a posting for this job by one of the "meta" job search engines. I read and and dismissed it, it seemed like a role that would be junior compared to my current job. Late August I received a call from their recruiter. He explained that he ran across my resume on the internet and had previewed it with the hiring manager for the "Director IT Solutions" position and he was "very impressed" with my background and wanted to schedule an interview. I told that recruiter that I would prefer a phone interview first. He said he would arrange it and get back to me.
Well a month passes. So I pick up the phone and call the recruiter. He apologizes that no one has gotten back to me and explains that he will talk to the hiring manager to get an update. The recruiter phones me five minutes later with a proposed time to interview in-person, either forgetting or dismissing that I preferred a phone interview as a first step. So I agree to the interview.
A couple of days later I go to their offices to meet with the hiring manager. One hour was scheduled. The actually interview spanned one hour and forty five minutes. I thought it went well.
I followed up that evening by spending the hiring manager a "thank you" email.
Another month passes with out any follow up from this company or its recruiter. I never heard a word from them. Very discourteous to say the least considering I didn't apply for this job they came to me and asked me to interview.
Highly disorganized to say the least and discourteous at best.
