    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Tokyo Electron America (Hillsboro, OR).

    Interview

    I have not worked in the industry before this position and I was only 19 when I started here so I cannot truly judge if it was a good process or not but will do my best. In the beginning of the interview they asked basic questions to get to know me and then began asking technical questions. After some time of questions, they gave me a scenario to solve and I feel that is a good thing to do because it will show them if the candidate can think out problems to solve them.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Tokyo Electron America.

    Interview

    The hiring process is done through a contracting company called HireRight. They do perform a detailed background check verifying military experience, college degree and transcripts as well as contacting your references. They will also coordinate a drug screening prior to employment as well. There is a considerable amount of negotiation able to be done regarding compensation though.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewing process is usually done by the Field service supervisor, and/or the Engineer(s) in charge. There weren't any unexpected questions or anything that stuck out as being particularly difficult. They are really looking for people that are honest and committed who have a desire to learn.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Never accept the first offer. They made a point that there has been a history of receiving bonuses on a semiannual basis based on company performance. My response was that the bonus was not a guarantee, and that I would not be able to accept without a competitive offer that was certain.

    Interview

    The HR team contacted me first based on my application. They do a short phone interview to see if they would like to invite you in for an interview. Once done, I was instantly asked to come in within the following week. Interview was relatively friendly and semi-formal. Tends to be behavioral/problem solving focused. Open attitude with a desire to learn is definitely something that will help you out.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked specific details regarding their technology/plasma processing which I did not have a very good answer for since plasma is really complex.   3 Answers

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Tokyo Electron America (Austin, TX) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Nice people. Interview lasted about an hour. Only negative was that it was 7 people all asking different questions. Was hard to figure out if it was a personality interview or technical interview. The panel consisted of the director level manager, two team lead/manager types and four co-worker level types.

    Interview Questions

    • Very generic questions, which made the interview hard to read. Questions like, "Describe a problem at your current job that didn't turn out the way you wanted it to and how you reacted?"   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Tokyo Electron America in May 2010.

    Interview

    Times have definitely changed since I interviewed. Very laid back at the time (1996). TEA was recruiting graduating students from my school. I had short phone interview, shortly after had an interview with my future supervisors. Second interview with the area manager. Area manger only mentioned my possible pay and benefits. No testing was required at the time, not many technical questions.
