    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Oberthur Technologies in November 2014.

    Interview

    I had an interview with 4 different people and the entire process took about 3-4 hours. One of them told me that I would get an answer by no later than Wednesday (interview took place on Monday). I didn't know whether he meant Wednesday in the same week I had the interview or Wednesday the week after - well, it didn't really matter after all since I never got an answer from them.

    I think they could have handled it better but it seems that they wouldn't be very promising to their employees either.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Oberthur Technologies.

    Interview

    I applied online for Position A and was told I'd be a better fit for a higher level, better paying position. They were very anxious to bring me and I adjusted my schedule to make the several hour drive down.

    The interview process was very informal and the people were decent. However, the primary supervisor I spent most of the time with spent 90% of the time talking about their operation, about what they wanted to do and gave me little opportunity to talk about myself.

    After the interview, they completely shut down all communication. It took six weeks to get a simple, one line item reimbursement check. I'd hate to be their vendors.

    Interview Questions

    • I would have needed to be asked a question first. I asked a few myself to gauge their knowledge of the systems in place and the answers that came back were not correct.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Oberthur Technologies (Chantilly, VA) in December 2007.

    Interview

    Posted my resume on Monster.com and was called by Oberthur H/R manager. After filling out application and going through H/R and interviewing with other managers, including video conference to our headquarters in LA, I was contacted to come in for a second and third interview and later called that I had gotten the position. It took about 2-weeks for this whole process. Bringing extra copies of my resume was very helpful as I spoke with many managers. Bring your own set of interview questions as you are also interviewing them to see if it would be a good fit for you. Dress professional and be sure your nails and shoes are clean. Please ask questions but don't be too loud and relax - enjoy the challenge. Take note of your surroundings as you are taken to be interviewed by other managers - are the people around you friendly? Is the office modern? Look at work environment and see if there is privacy or open cubicle concepts where the employees spend their working day. Is there a cafeteria, vending machines, convenient restrooms and don't forget to checkout parking and transportation options. I took note of this as I went from manager to manager. Also, google the company and be knowledgeable about it so you can asked informed questions. Good luck!

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate but really sold myself short. Be sure to ask what the range is for the position. I did not and started at the lower end, which I still haven't gotten my salary to where it should be because of that error.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Oberthur Technologies (Jakarta (Indonesia)) in July 2011.

    Interview

    It was nice, the HR was very very friendly and eager to really know about me even though i was a bit nervous. There were question and papers to be filled in, and they provided enough time for that. I was provided with warm tea for drink. I think it is to make me feel relax. The technical questions were not that hard. I think the most important thing is that they wanted to know what kind of person i am and what is my attitude towards work and life.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Oberthur Technologies (Nanterre (France)) in May 2010.

    Interview

    L'ambiance de travail était professionnelle et la séance d'entretien était très brève mais spécifique. Le responsable était plus intéressé à ma personnalité et si j'étais approprié. Le chef d'équipe a aussi conduit l'entretien. Ils m'ont aimé à la fin, alors ils m'ont embauché.

    The working atmosphere was professional, and the interview session was very brief but specific. The manager was more concerned about the personality and if I fit in, the team leader conducted the interview as well. They liked me in the end so they hired me.
