    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cognex.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by a recruiter about the position. After a bit of correspondence, the recruiter requested a phone interview. That went well and I was asked into the office for a set of on campus interviews. There was a set of six interviews with half an hour each interview. Only one them tested my coding skills.

    Everyone I talked to seemed very knowledgeable and passionate about their work.
