    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cymer (San Diego, CA) in July 2018.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview with out any notice before that. Just got a call from the hire managers ( I guess) . This person asked some general questions , and then he asked me when I got my master and bachelor degrees. I think he just wants to know how old I am, and this question made me uncomfortable and realized the ageism .

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cymer (San Diego, CA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Phone interview granted. In their conference room was the staff, without an HR representative. There was no itinerary or pre-meeting announcement, just a phone call to conduct an immediate interview. The methodology was Socratic rather than a conversation, disparaging rather than enlightening.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions posed were situational: "What would you do if..." While this is an intriguing condition to consider options, the most common reaction is needing more clarification or specifics of the situation.   1 Answer

    IT Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cymer.

    Interview

    Submitted my application via the web, and made direct contact with the recruiter to try and raise my application in the pile. Exchanged email with the recruiter to schedule a phone screen. My experience is that the phone screen offers some general questions about experience, skills, salary, and basic high-level career questions. This phone screen was different. Lasting almost an hour, I was asked all of the 'canned' interview questions. i.e. ' Biggest strength, Biggest weakness, etc. etc.'.

    The following day (or so) I was contacted via phone to setup a 2nd phone interview with HR representatives, and the hiring manager.

    The HR Reps asked about relocation, salary expectations, and gave me some general idea about working at Cymer. Basically everything I expected the first phone screen to be about. Following that I was transferred to the Hiring Manager.

    Here things took an unfortunate turn. I could sense by his questions, and his disinterest in engaging in a conversation about the role, and the company that he was uninterested in me as a candidate. I got the feeling from his short and somewhat terse questions that he was just going through the motions. A day or two later I received the canned 'thanks, but no thanks' email.

    Interview Questions

    • "Tell me, what changes would you make to the organization?" This question was unexpected because it was the 2nd question. Without any bearing on the organization, or the changes that may need to be made, I had no frame of reference to answer. When I attempted to start a conversation to try and find context, he dropped the subject.   Answer Question
