    Order Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Applied Materials (Austin, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Had a "surprise" interview over the phone with the hiring manager approx. 20 days after I applied online (usually I expect a call or an email from HR or recruiter to schedule a time). Even though I was not totally prepared I believe I did well and went for the 2nd phase to visit the Austin office and to meet and interview with the team.
    A couple of weeks later, I had a face-to-face interview with the hiring manager and 3 different folks from the team. They were all nice, professional and receptive even though they were reading questions from a script. But I never heard back from the company after that day.
    There is nothing more frustrating for a candidate when they dedicate time and prepare to give their best and NEVER hear back from the company. Extremely unprofessional no matter how good or bad the interview was.

    Buyer/Planner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Applied Materials (Austin, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    You apply for an RFT position online, and whoever they tell the managers to interview, the interview. In all honesty, they already know who they're going to hire. There isn't really a good chance at landing an RFT job here unless you are on the NCG program, or someone mentions you. It's like a chain gang. One person moves up to mgmt, that manager brings his crew in. There is absolutely NO equal opportunity at this company.

    Interview Questions

    • They are mostly behavioral.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is generally no negotiation, as soon as you're hired, they throw you a laptop and basically start screaming at you.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Applied Materials (Austin, TX) in March 2014.

    Interview

    They asked me a lot about Oracle and SAP experience. They came back to my Oracle experience repeatedly. They had little interest in my university or academic experience, but they did cover it, at least as a formality. Very cordial people, straight to the point. They know what they need and want to know if you can provide that for them.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Applied Materials (Austin, TX) in March 2013.

    Interview

    First Round - Phone Interview. Standard questions regarding resume and experiences. Special interest in ability to work with large data sets as well as visibility to csuite and vendor partners.

    Secound Round - In person group interview. The firm DID NOT provide for travel expenses. The interview time was changed on the prior day. The expectation was a series of individual interviews. Instead it was a group interview including adjoining resources Finance etc. At the end of the second round I was asked to prepare a presentation at an appropriate management level for future presentation via Skype.

    Following delivery via email of the presentation I have had no response from the firm.
    The presentation was never given via Skype etc.

    Interview Questions

    • Very difficult to provide answers which addressed all cross functional business groups.
      Reconsider the need to provide a future presentation, rather than perhaps using a timed exercise to "complete" the process in an extended session.
