    I worked at Cree full-time (more than 3 years)


    Cree takes good care of their employees. Good benefits, amazing gym on site with classes, basketball and racquetball courts, etc. Also a cafeteria on site. Management was helpful and supportive. Company is growing and part of an exciting new trend in lighting.


    This is a manufacturing facility so it is running 24/7. You will have to work some weekends.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Cree.

    Interview Details

    Went out twice, provided great references, but company does not hire based on skills necessary for the job. Was asked to do a presentation last minute and when one person disagreed with a viewpoint, I was no longer a candidate. In my opinion Cree has a broken hiring process. Ask if they hire for the best skill match and if they can tolerate diversity before wasting your time.
