    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at ASML.

    Interview

    Was contacted by the "John Galt Staffing Inc." staffing agency by Sean Nelson. Never applied for the position. Sean found my resume online and got in touch with me. He was super helpful throughout the entire process. Was in correspondence with him for about two weeks after which I finally received a phone screen.
    The phone screen is not like any other phone screen I have been a part of in other companies in the past. It is a full blown interview. It went on for an hour.
    Suggestions: Read about UV light characteristics, photolithography process.
    Did not get selected although I felt my interview went really well. They want someone who is technically sound and academically excellent. Had high expectations. Did not even give me a feedback why I did not get selected. Overall, not a good experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself.   Answer Question
    • Tell me about your internship experiences.   Answer Question
    • Talk about one project in detail which you are passionate about.   Answer Question
    • Gave me a design question for a photolithography machine. Design a nozzle for blowing air on to the mask for cooling it during the lithography process.   1 Answer

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ASML (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and a recruiter contacted me after two weeks to arrange first phone interview. The interview lasted around 30 minutes. She asked me about my educational background, programming skills and why I wanted to join ASML.

    After another two weeks, another recruiter contacted me to arrange second phone interview with a professional person. I was expecting a more professional talk around the posted vacancy and and my research experiences . However, the guy ended up asking me high school physics and math formulas rather than conceptual questions. He never looked my CV even. I have never experienced such kind of interview at a professional level. I am sure high school student will remember all the formulas better than one who finished high school 10 or more years ago.

    Interview Questions

    • I think he just was not in a mood to interview me. Some one with the right mentality will not expect you remember all formulas in science.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ASML (San Diego, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Job was interesting, team I'd be joining was extremely talented and I was willing to jump ship to work for ASML. But they acknowleged they couldn't make me an offer anywhere near my current base salary for the same job title, so now I just feel sorry for how low the salaries must be there. This is my second such experience at the US location of a now-European company so in future I will start asking salary ranges up front to avoid wasting time.
