    Sales Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro) in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got called from my current supervisor 2 days after I submitted the resume. Went in for interview at the very next time. Questions were very general since the position is entry level. I did not really have any hard time answering most of them which I was very surprised since I am terrible when it comes to interview. Everything was pretty smooth, except it was somehow intimidating when I talked to one of the big bosses at the end.

    Sales Administrator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro).

    Interview Details

    Applied online, and was contacted by the HR dept for an interview the following week. Arrived at the interview approximately 15 minutes prior and the interviewer was still 20 minutes late. The entire interview was about my experience, but none of the questions were about me. Maybe one, and the rest were basic interview questions. The interviewer was a complete jerk. He made me felt my presence was a waste of his time. He had the audacity to say to me, "It took you that long to finish school?" Really? I asked him a few questions. And one of the question was, " What other avenues of contact do the customers have beside email and customer service? This jerk said, " What does this question pertain to the position you are applying for?" Huh? I could not believe what i had just heard. I believe it was a legitimate question due to the fact that as a potential employee, we need to know alternative contacts for customers just in case. I guess the interview hadn't heard of customer service, or what customer service is about. Complete jerk, and waste of my time as the entire interview lasted no more than 15 minutes. Horrible experience, and i would never recommend anyone to work here.

    I applied online – interviewed at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro).

    Interview Details

    First got a call from one of the testing department managers then set up a person to person interview next week to Super Micro fremont office. At first, the first manager briefly described the company and the job, then the manager started asking some questions regarding of my resume and me. There were not many technical questions but does have one or two. Ended up being interviewed by 5 managers following the same style as the first manager. but one of the manager has really bad temper tho...

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    There are two on-site interviews and have been talking to four interviewers. The whole interview process is arranged by an engineer, not HR. The interviewers did not ask detail technical questions since they do not have similar technical backgrounds. Spend about 10 to 20 minutes to talk to each interviewer.

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro).

    Interview Details

    An internal contact set me up for the interview. The first interview was fairly low key around technical content and personal interaction. It was somewhat challenging to sustain the conversation, English is obviously not their first language. But I managed to get the points through.

    Second interview with higher level management went south right off the bat. Lots and lots technical details to the point of trivial, like the pin layout on Intel Ivy CPU. To make it worse, more personal questions on family status, parents kids wife and more. WTF? I am very familiar with this level of scrutiny when I applied for government clearance sitting in front of FBI agents , not at a commercial company.

    Interview was concluded by a casual remark, "we work really hard here. do you"?

    Interview Questions
    • Inappropriate personal questions. They really expected you to answer them fully. I should make money by filing a EEOC complaint.   View Answer
