    Supplier Integration Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hillsboro, OR

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cabot Microelectronics (Hillsboro, OR) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Was contacted by the HR to schedule an initial phone interview with the hiring manager which was about 30 mins long where I was asked to describe my work experience. Was scheduled for a next round of phone interview soon after which was a group/panel presentation over the phone. Was given 2 weeks time to work on a STAR based situation based on work experience and create a presentation for about 10 mins. This was hard to co-ordinate over the phone but I was invited onsite after this for meeting the team and a tour of the facility. Onsite interview was very casual and involved meeting the team talking about my experience and how I would fit in and included a 30 min tour of the facility and lunch with the hiring manager. It took them three weeks after the onsite interview to say that they chose a more experienced candidate after constant follow up with the HR.

    Scientist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cabot Microelectronics (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Phone Interview with Team Lead, followed by WebEx with a panel. I was told WebEx would only be sharing screen but it was awkward when they asked to turn on video as I was not prepared to be seen. An experienced employee was very rude. They were looking for a chemist specifically and my materials science background was not fit for the job. So they were very rude and aggressive.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cabot Microelectronics (Dallas, TX) in April 2013.

    Interview

    At first, received a mail asking for a HR interview schedule. HR interview was basically about past projects, about relocation, salary, availability, etc.. and then I was recommended for technical interview where 4 members interviewed me over the phone. The interview was again a deeper dig into my projects, resume and the skills that I knew. I was denied an offer and I was told in the follow-up that another person's skills matched their needs better.

    • Nothing in particular. All we have to do is to clearly explain about the projects that we did.   Answer Question
