    Quality Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at EMCORE (Alhambra, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Applied for the job online. Was contacted by their recruiter about 3 weeks later and she did a phone interview asking about my general experience. Then I had a second phone interview with the Director of Quality. The recruiter contacted me soon after that to set up face to face interviews. I met with several senior managers and engineers individually. They seemed a little disorganized about who would interview me when, and one manager could not attend at all. I flew home and got a call within a day and a half offering me the job.

    Interview Questions

    • The operations manager focused mostly on behavioral type questions, explaining that they really needed someone who could work well with others. Some technical questions from my resume as well.   Answer Question

    Applications Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EMCORE (Albuquerque, NM) in April 2010.

    Interview

    There was a long gap of about 8 weeks between applying and the actual selection for interview. The Primary applicant had been selected and then worked for two weeks and then quit. I was then brought in as the next candidate in the queue and ran through 4 hours of interviews with 4 individuals in the management and work area. I felt comfortable in the process, and although the level of questions were detailed, the intent appeared to try and find out how I would fit into the team.

    Interview Questions

    • There were several questions about the photovoltaic semiconductor solid state physics, and the modeling of this semiconductor junction.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I asked for a salary for what I needed to make in order to make a life-transition at $65k. I was pleasantly surprised when HR added $15k to my salary request based upon my experience.
