    Project Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Agilent Technologies (San Jose, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Was reached out via LinkedIn. Had to send my resume twice, then was prompted to fill out a questionnaire that took ~30 minutes to answer. The answers I've provided have led to onsites with Apple, Google, PayPal, and a few more interesting companies but for some reason, I was deemed not a good fit, so no technical screen.

    I don't think it's worth having to fill out a questionnaire for such a result, but good luck!

    Research Assistant, Companion Diagnostics Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ventura, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Agilent Technologies (Ventura, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was emailed by someone from the recruiting team about 1 1/2 weeks after submitting my application to set up the initial phone interview. The interviewer was nice, they mostly asked basic questions about my background and behavioral questions such as why I wanted this position, what I know about it, and to describe my research background. I never received an e-mail back so I am assuming that I did not get an offer, however the interviewer had told me that had I been selected, an on-site interview where I got to meet my coworkers would have been next.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Agilent Technologies in May 2016.

    Interview

    Was contacted via email by a non-Agilent HR person to set up a time for a screening interview using a web scheduling app. Set up a time and received a confirmation email. Waited for 30 minutes past the arranged time for the interviewer to call, then called her myself. She asked several questions, but mostly was interested in salary range. On one question, when I finished a rather long answer, she did not reply. After asking "hey, are you still there?" the interviewer un-muted me. She actually muted me and was obviously not even listening to the answer, or on another call. Unbelievable.

    A week after this I got another email to set up a time to do a 1:1 phone interview with the hiring manager. I again selected a time, and received an email confirming it. The morning of the interview I waited an hour past the time indicated and then called the guy myself. He was surprised, because the non-agilent hired-out HR person hadn't put the interview on his calendar. In spite of that, he talked to me anyway for quite a while and was very professional.

    I really like Agilent as a company, but they need to stop outsourcing everything, the legendary HP quality in that regard is completely gone.
