    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Universal Instruments (Conklin, NY) in March 2013.

    Interview

    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 Questions

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

    Reasons 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.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Universal Instruments (Conklin, NY).

    Interview

    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 Questions

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

    Negotiation

    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.
