    Call Center Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Prior Lake, MN

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Standard Microsystems (Prior Lake, MN) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Go to HR, take typing test, talk to someone, then get sent across the street to interview with the department. I was given names of 2 people to ask for at security and when I got there neither of those people were working that day. I was then told to wait that someone would come and get me. I was greeted by a very nice person and taken back even though I was already an employee of the company and wanting to transfer to this department. I could of walked back there myself. Once I got there I was walked into a "focus room" where the Asst. Manger of the dept also was sitting. I was ask a bunch of generic questions that were typed on a sheet of paper that all departments ask. I was not given a chance to ask any questions of them and when I tried I was rudely cut off. Why I ever agreed to take the job when offered I am still questioning myself about. I was not properly trained and treated like I was in grade school. I walked off the job and left a company I gave more than 10+ years of my life to.

    Computer Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Standard Microsystems.

    Interview

    Was contacted by HR after applying and then was asked to come in for onsite interview. I meet with some nice engineers, and the interview was rather technical. However, there was an instance where they tried to play devils advocate and try and get a response and see how I handled it. I have been on a few interviews before and the way they handled it kind of put me off and made them seem a bit unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • Expect the usual HR grill about your weakness and strengths. Don't talk negatively about yourself these are trap questions. Turn every negative into a positive. I also didn't expect them to play devils advocate.   Answer Question

    The interview was very laid back. Not many technical questions were asked. The manager that hired me never interviewed me which I felt was very strange. Most of the questions were about my education back ground and areas of interest.
