    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Align Technology (Santa Clara, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    We went to lunch which was awkward but pretty easy then I met with the General Counsel for a brief interview. All in all it was a good experience and not very difficult but I was recommended by their HR person who hired me at a previous job.

    Questions were not on what are things but rather how things work. So, not like what a static class is but what a class loader does or how spring works.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Align Technology (Raleigh, NC) in August 2015.

    Interview

    After submitting a resume I was asked to meet with the vice president in person. During scheduling I talked to a recruiter who asked some typical screening type questions but was given very little information about the position or what they were looking for in a candidate. Since they had my resume and wanted me to come in I assumed my past experience would be useful to them.

    On the day of the interview, I spoke to a software manager who asked some basic C++ questions. He seemed very confused and annoyed that I was there at 8AM although that is the time they scheduled me for. This was followed by a meeting with the vice president who asked some general questions about what I have worked on and what I am good at. After I told the vice president what I had worked on and what I was good at he bluntly told me that they aren't looking for that type of experience and that they didn't have anything for me there. This was very annoying to me since my resume reflected what I have worked on and a 10 minute phone call would have prevented this waste of time if there was any question about.

    The office space was very open. There were some offices for managers but just open tables/workstations for others. Even if offered the job I doubt I would feel comfortable working there based on how the office was set up and the personalities of those who I interviewed with.

    In contrast, I had an interview with LexisNexis later that day and everyone at LexisNexis was extremely polite and respectful.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Align Technology (Raleigh, NC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Got an email from an HR manager wanting to setup an interview on a certain day and time. They did not tell me much about the position or the company. Had to sign an NDA before interviewing with the hiring manager. The office was very empty and I saw no other employees except the Human Resources and Software Director. Human resources tried to sell it as a ground floor opportunity to influence the culture of the organization at that location. Software Director presented the technology that they were working on, then asked some technical questions. He gave two algorithms to solve on paper.
