    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Carl Zeiss Vision (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Interviewed with AP Supervisor and then accounting manager. Overall it was an easy and straight forward interview. HR was very nice and informative about the position and who I would be meeting during the interview. They were looking to hire someone quickly, as there were transitioning their payables to the corporate office in San Diego.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Carl Zeiss Vision (San Diego, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the recruiter who was very polite and set up the interview at they company offices. After a brief talk with the recruiter, I was interviewed by two different members of the management. One of them was very late (I sat and waited in the room for 20 minutes). It tuned out to be the direct supervisor for the open position. When she finally showed up, she offered no apologies for lateness and proceeded by asking slightly bizarre questions like which functions in Excel I know how to use. I have 10+ yrs of excel experience and consider myself an advanced user, but even a complete novice could figure out pretty much everything since few software packages have a help database as extensive as MS Office.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Carl Zeiss Vision (San Diego, CA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring process seemed to be unorganized with few appropriate competency questions. I have a friend there that says the organization is very disfunctional with many unhappy employees and unfit and unfriendly management, especially the VP of marketing. I interviewed anyways and found the salary to be on the low side.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Carl Zeiss Vision (San Diego, CA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the VP of Procurement. VP asked me very good questions that I was able to answer with no problem. I initially had a phone interview with HR and then they called me to invite me into their office in San Diego. The VP of Procurement who sits in HQ in Germany, came to the US to interview me....I'm sure he/she came to San Diego for other reasons as well.
