Manufacturing Manager Interview

Manufacturing Manager
Apopka, FL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at TriQuint.

Interview Details – Three stage interview process.

1. Phone interview with HR representative. Questions include tell me about yourself, your management and leadership style. Casual interview for the most part.

2. Phone interview with the Hiring Manager. Rapid fire questions including tell me about yourself, familiarity with manufacturing equations/processes, why do you want to be in this position, etc.

3. In person interview with 7 different managers. "Speed interviewing" basically - 15 minutes with each group or person. Start from the top down. Tell me about yourself, typical questions like that. Why do you want this position, know your background, etc. Some more in depth questions from one of the managers about how to find and stop bottlenecks from happening; in addition, knowing how to properly document and discipline employees.

Interview Question – Though there were tough questions, the most important one I answered 5 times was tell me about yourself. Make sure you have a good 1-2 minute explanation of yourself and how you want to be seen as the right candidate for the position.   Answer Question

Commercial Contracts Administrator Interview

Industrial Statistician Interview

Industrial Statistician
Hillsboro, OR

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at TriQuint in March 2013.

Interview Details – I had a 30-minute phone interview with HR and then a 15-minute phone interview with the hiring manager. I traveled to a full-day site interview. After meeting with the HR person, I had multiple 1:1 and 2:1 interviews each at 30 minutes each. I probably met with 10 people (only one woman -- how behind the times is that?). I was also asked to make a 30-minute presentation on my background and some past projects. The interview seemed to go well.

That was now 6 weeks ago and I have not heard back. I e-mailed the HR guy after two weeks to find out there expected schedule and never heard back. I think I dodged a bullet: if HR is not willing to give an on-site candidate the simple courtesy of a response to an interview and a follow-up email, I wonder how well the employees are treated after they are hired.

Technician Interview

Technician
Dallas, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at TriQuint in September 2009.

Interview Details – 5 interviews took 1/2 day met with management up to Sr Director level. I was recommended and completed a contract job so I was already familiar with people during my interview. Just be yourself and don't try and BS. Appear trainable and eager to work hard and learn. Tell them about experience from all jobs that will benefit their department. Good GPA helps.

RF Engineering Intern Interview

RF Engineering Intern
Hillsboro, OR

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at TriQuint in June 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online and got a call from HR and my interview was scheduled. It was for an Summer intern position. I had done couple of projects on RF and so I was asked to describe all the projects and 2 projects were completed by me during my sophomore and my memory wasnt great. He asked me names of specific power amplifier and battery specs which I could not answer.

It was shameful from my perspective that you dont remember your own project. But who does remember such minute details. So my advice is to gp through your resume and your course or intern projects thoroughly. It will help a lot to answer questions.

Interview Question – He asked me about very specific parameter values of Power amplifier and batteries I used for my projects. That was hard to remember at that instant of interview.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I didnt negotiate although I wasnt very happy with the pay.

Was promised follow up within 1 week. 2 weeks lapse and nothing. I reach out and again am promised follow up within a few days. Nothing. Been 3 weeks now and still nothing.
