    Advice to Management

    Newer management is making hard but good decisions that will allow company to continue to grow. Older management could benefit by accepting new ways to get old things done and by seeing the old way isn't necessarily the best way.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cree in June 2015.


    I applied through my university. one month later,I got a email from them asking about my GPA, availability, authorization to work in U.S., and relocation. After I answered these questions, I got a long written questionnaire (23 behavioral questions)
    within the same day that I submitted the questionnaire, I got an invitation for a phone interview. It was not a pleasant interview experience. The engineer kept interrupting me while I was talking. It was hard to hear the interviewer through phone. The whole process last 40 mins.
