    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Advantech in August 2017.

    Interview

    First interviewer was personable, engaging but off topic. Second interviewer was serious and barely asked questions. The second interviewer spent so much time talking about the company and the duties I barely was able to assert myself into the conversation and why I was a good fit for the role.

    Applications Engineer Interview

    Interview

    Initially I applied for ecommerce category manager position after the phone-screening which was very vague, so vague that when I went to the onsite interview the hiring manager thought I was better fitted for an application engineer instead ecommerce cause I didn’t have an MBA and didn’t know the MBA terminologies. Ehhh… education over success! Clearly the HR and hiring manager wasn’t on the same page.

    Thought it was all good, knew what Applications Engineers did and went in for two more onsite interviews. HR checked out my references at my past jobs of production development, IT/MIS, ERP/CRM, ecommerce, masters in EE from top ranked university, etc… The hiring manager gave out a good vibe saying he was going to write up an offer but never heard back from them. Tried calling the HR and hiring manager for a couple of days but never got through. Finally sent a follow up email and a week later the HR said the position was cancelled.

    Huge waste of time! This all took over a month! Resigned for my past China based company and thought a Taiwanese or a non-communist country would be better but unfortunately not. Very misleading!

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Advantech (Milpitas, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Interview went well without indication of the real situation/culture in the office; being interviewed by the only white people in a Taiwanese company was very misleading.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Advantech (Irvine, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Pretty standard. 2 part interview. One with the dept. manager and the other with a Sales Director. Both had a series of prepared questions. The Sales Director was the follow up interview and tried to create a pressure-like situation with his questions. He was a bit transparent and easy to read. I played along with it and came out with an offer letter later that afternoon.
