    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Applied Materials in April 2020.

    Interview

    Due to the quarantine situation, there was no onsite interview. Got informed that there would be only one interview during the first and the only interview. Total of 5 rounds with 5 people with different positions in the team. Questions are easy and based on the resume. They all sound pretty nice there. I was told their working hours were very long. It is not a nice thing to hear, but at least they are being transparent during the interviews. Still waiting for the result.

    Interview Questions
