    Engineering Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ronkonkoma, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Advanced Energy (Ronkonkoma, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    HR was helpful and answered all my questions. “Sr Eng” was difficult, rude and no professional. So many technical questions. I reviewed all the responsibilities before I applied. This “Sr Eng” person added more responsibilities and played games. It looked this one didn’t want to hire anyone. This job was posted since January/2017. It is still looking for a year. I don’t recommend to apply.

    Senior Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Collins, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Advanced Energy (Fort Collins, CO).

    Interview

    Multiple people, about an hour each. Mainly RF and LabView. They hire almost exclusively by having people work as contractors for a while first. They paid fairly well on contract and were fairly flexible on work hours. The trick is to find a headhunter that has contacts into the company. They almost never respond to direct attempts as contact. They are mainly a LabView house for test development. In the lab they use MatLab a lot.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe Smith Chart and its uses. Calculate an RF matching network.   Answer Question

    Interview

    The interview was formal at the beginning and got more relaxed as the process took place. The dress code was formal. The original interviewer was busy, so I was interviewed by the second shift lead, and joined by other managers about ten minutes in.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Advanced Energy.

    Interview

    I was local, so I don't recall if there was an initial phone interview. They had me present for an hour on a position related subject of my choosing. General approach was looking for technical competency and familiarity with reliability as well as experience with steps of development programs. HR was pretty typical, with being friendly and open about information,... until salary is discussed, then they are trying to get you for the best deal, like most HR people.

    Interview Questions

    • Probably either explaining the development process I am (already) used to, or there were some specifics on magnetics.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Some back and forth with the HR lady,... I initially was going to decline, then came back and decided to accept.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Advanced Energy in January 2012.

    Interview

    Mostly interviewed by Functional Mangers and they asked questions related to my resume. No trick or surprise questions. I was well prepared with everything on my resume and so really enjoyed the interview. Just expected me to be willing to take on the role and go through the learning curve.The best part was the decision was made at the end of the interview. Interviewers are friendly and courteous. The interview was also short and limited to about 4 hours with each person interviewing for about half hour.
