    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Riverside, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bourns (Riverside, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through email for an engineering internship position. They do not have an actual internship program yet so the process was a little longer than expected but everybody I spoke to throughout the process was extremely nice and helpful. After a few weeks I had a phone interview. A few weeks after that I had an in person interview where I was asked basic questions about why I would want to work here. A few weeks after that, I was called with the news that i was going to be hired.

    Human Resources Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bourns (Riverside, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The initial interview was pleasant and very informative. The company is quite conservative, so they were being very careful to find the right fit. There were 2 interviews in total, the individual that was leaving conducted the first interview and then her boss conducted a second interview. The first interview was approximately 1 hour long while the second with her boss was about 2.5 hours.

    There were a lot of hypothetical questions and when answering with real experience, the interviewer said "oh, I've got to come up with better questions, you've done all this." I was surprised at that remark because one would think you would want someone who had actually done the job versus what they think they would do. This was surprising for me.

    The facililty was very quiet and I was told "we discourage meeting in the halls." To me that meant, they discouraged conversation.

    Interview

    It took long time to have three steps interview, overall is not that difficult but it depends on how managers like you or not. The questions might not be that difficult to answer, but the first impression is very important.
