    I worked at Electro Scientific Industries full-time (more than 10 years)


    For a smaller company, they carry many big company benefits. If you work hard, you will move up.
    The company has been around for over 60 years and is financially stable.


    Management could be more involved with projects and direction. Seems to be a big gap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With several changes in upper management, the direction of the company may be lost. A strong leader with industry knowledge. While laser applications is the current company focus, it doesn't have to be. The company started out as an electronic test and measurement company.

    Applications Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Electro Scientific Industries in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I got an interview right after I graduated with my BS in Mechanical Engineering. They had two candidates on my day, and we both arrived at 8 am to give presentations. It was pretty akward knowing the person next to you is competing for the same job, but I'm assuming they do this on purpose. After the presentations, I had 3-4 face to face interviews, then lunch with the team. Followed by more interviews, and a couple telecom interviews.

    I think I did pretty well overall, but hadn't slept much the night before and they basically asked a lot of engineering and brain teaser questions.

    I didn't get an offer, and I also herd from the HR lady that they ended up not hiring anybody for the position.

    Interview Questions
    • - If a string was tied around the Earth, and you added 1 foot to the string, how much higher off the surface of the Earth would the string be?
