Software Engineer Coop Interview

Software Engineer Coop
Conklin, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Universal Instruments in March 2013.

Interview Details – Phone interview mostly related to previous work experience. Were mostly interested in vision related projects. Candidates selected purely on basis of projects and availability. 4-5 people during phone interview. Called for 2nd interview in their HQ at Conklin, NY. A purely electronics based company. 5 interviewers interviewed for 30 mins each, asking HR questions and more about project work.

Interview Question – A lot of HR questions and most of the 5 interviewers asked the same question.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Software Developer is the position they wanted to hire me for but wanted me to develop GUI and write machine level code. Not relevant to what I was looking for.

Manager Interview

Manager
Conklin, NY

I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Universal Instruments.

Interview Details – Contacted by a Senior Manager. Arranged for phone interview, followed by an on-site interview with several senior staff. A presentation was demanded, but only the hiring manger attended. The hiring manager was satisfied and then asked for a repeat presentation with more people. A second round table interview was arranged at a later date. I was given a tour of the facility and generally impressed by the appearance and professionalism of the HR staff at the time. Since then 3 VPs of HR have resigned, and, you can't judge a book by its cover.

Interview Question – No difficult questions were asked. The hiring manager simply wanted to talk about themselves most of the time.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I negotiated for term that once I was employed never materialized after 5 years. The lack of compliance to verbal promisses left me bitter, angry and dissatisfied. I eventually left.
