    Average Interview

    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.

    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.
