    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Polar Semiconductor (Bloomington, MN) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of three parts. First, there was a talk with a hiring member of HR who was very kind and had a good energy. After this I was taken on a walking tour of the fabrication floor in the full clean room attire, and lastly, I was sat down with the supervisor of the department for a formal interview. Overall, it was a positive experience and gave both myself and the supervisor a good feel of if I would be good for the job.
