    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Veeco Instruments.

    Interview

    Recruiter first asked how are you doing during the campus study, if any activities you've ever enjoy in. They would focus on why you choose their company and why internal audit position. If you have related work experiences, they would go detailed about that, like how you performed it, what is your responsibility, and what you think challenge you most. During the behavior question there may some academic question, like the classification of accounts on the balance sheet, calculate the depreciation, or revenue recognition. At last they would wondering how you will bring to their company, and what's your plan for future. Ending is whether you have any questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Veeco Instruments.

    Interview

    Phone interview then one on one interviews face to face. I did receive a phone call after the interview process after 7:00 pm which wasn't acceptable. The first phone interview took a little over an hour. The panel interview was one person at a time which made it a little less stressful.

    Interview Questions

    • I was also asked if I had a significant other because they wanted to make sure I just didn't want the job because I needed it. Very odd and unethical.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was happy with what was offered

    Interview

    Interview was good. Very nice people to talk to on the phone. Travel arrangements were done quickly and rapidly. The interview process onsite consisted of 1-1 interviews with people from the department. A lot of technical questions were asked; challenging fundamentals and problem solving.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Veeco Instruments (Somerset, NJ) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I interviewed with five people. The first three were one on one and one was with two people. The job description that I had received from HR was really not accurate and completely wrong. The details did not match the actual Job. I later found out that it was from a different division. The interviewers were all nice and professional and they asked reasonable questions
