    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Volcano Corporation (San Diego, CA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the HR Manager to verify my skills and qualifications. I was then invited to meet with the Director and the VP of HR. Both interviews went very well. I was asked to give them a minimum of two weeks to make their decision about being invited back for a second interview. I sent both a thank you letter, and the VP actually responded with indication that we would meet again. After weeks, and no word from the company, I followed up with an email to both the Director and the VP. I immediately received an email indicating that they would call me immediately. The HR Director called me to apologize for not informing me that they move on with another candidate about a week prior. She indicated that she thought that she already communicated to me and that she did not realize that she had forgotten. I find it difficult that employer expects candidates to be professional, yet they are so unprincipled

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Volcano Corporation (Sacramento, CA) in April 2009.

    Interview

    First met with hiring manager and the HR person. then met at a later date, peers and direct report--about 8 people. They all seemed to think that their work/products were much more sophisticated and challenging than comparable work in similar companies. A bit of an elitist attitude; an us against the world attitude
