Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Allegro MicroSystems (Worcester, MA) in November 2015.

Interview

While I did get the job... I found the most senior level interview to be borderline inappropriate. Questions were far more personal than professional; it was clear this person hasn't changed with the times. It felt like I was on an interview in the 1970s. I can only imagine the questions a woman might encounter. If there was ever a company in need of a large-scale retraining effort, this is it. The more junior (read: younger) interviewers seemed a lot more correct in their approach, but those over 55ish simply had no business being in the position to talk with candidates. This one senior level interview almost made me get up, leave politely, and not give the company a second thought.

Interview Questions

  • Why did you move to the area?   1 Answer
  • What does your wife do for a living?   1 Answer
  • A good chunk of the position-related questions were directly out of some baby-brained playbook taken right out of 1990; that is, those generic questions meant to trip you up and see how you answer. Look... I don't totally dismiss their intention, but these questions are very out of date. It's filler used as a recourse for interviewers to fall back on when they quickly run out of valid questions. They're asked awkwardly and answered awkwardly. I despise them and all I can think about when posed with one of these geriatric softballs is to contemplate all the years I've spent studying and working that got me here. Seriously... let's take it up a knotch, shall we?   1 Answer
