Interviewed at Oakley
Interview Details – This process was especially intense and grueling. Also it was extremely long! I went through a telephone interview, in person interview, and then came back to do three 1/2 hour interviews with people in the department followed by a 20 minute presentation on a topic in the field. It was not enjoyable and I think it was a lot of resources wasted for the company.
Interview Question – Nothing-- just a tough presentation as they seemed pretty insistent that it matched their culture as well as being informative and showing you know your stuff Answer Question

Interview Question – tell me why you want to work for oakley? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oakley in December 2013.
Interview Details – Answered a opening in Monster.com. HR called within a week to set up a phone interview. HR asked basic questions about my resume. Went in for an interview a week later. Met with HR for an hour and then the hiring manager. HR interview was more in depth on work history and experience. Hiring Manager interview went off the rails quickly when I was asked if I was a Christian. I guess I answered wrong, the next question was, "do I have any questions about the position", which I did, but got vague answers. Then I got the, "well thanks for coming in" line, and was shown the door. HR interview 1 hour, hiring manager interview 6 minutes. That should be a record.
It looks and sounded like an awesome place to work. Everyone seems smart, and they work hard and play hard. HR felt I may be a little over qualified, but who isn't these days. Very casual dress, interview in t-shirt and jeans.
Interview Question – This one is a no brainer, "are you a Christian?" View Answer
