    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rochester Hills, MI
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at FANUC (Rochester Hills, MI).

    Interview

    Applied to their webpage, had a chat with a very competent and friendly engineer, then did the standard 'different person every 30 minutes for the whole day' thing. Seemed like a great company, but as a younger engineer I didn't really want to move to the (admittedly lovely) 'burbs of Michigan.

    Field Service Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at FANUC (Houston, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was informative for an phone interview with an HR person. I was asked if I minded traveling and was given the basic geographical area of the position as well as the expected home town. It was also related to me that this position was to work on CNC machines and not robotics which was not any issue.

    However, the discussion came to an abrupt halt when it was explained to me that I would need to purchase a vehicle to get the position and the vehicle must be worth at least $23,000 and no more than 3 years old. I explained to the HR person that the purchase of a new vehicle at the beginning of a job is potentially dangerous because I have no guarantee of how long the position with the company will last. If I accept the position then the company lays me off I am stuck with a vehicle payment and the company is free and clear. In my opinion, it is a pretty bad practice to force new employees to purchase a vehicle to get a job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at FANUC.

    Interview

    For the interview, you meet with the supervisor, manager, and a senior representative each separately on the same day. You basically have 3 interviews. If the position is not for a direct-hire, you will work with a contract-house for background checks and drug screening. The contract-house is the one that you will have benefits and receive checks from. They do a phone interview before you go to their office. In their office, they give you a few written easy tests.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at FANUC in August 2015.

    Interview

    HR Phone Interview. Went through all the questions to discover they are looking for an engineer with 3 years of experience with own vehicle to work for 40-55k in Los Angeles area. She wished me "good luck" on my search although I'm absolutely sure that she will need more luck to find some one with such an offer, let alone keep them for longer than 3 months (if they are absolutely desperate)

    Field Service Technician (CNC) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at FANUC (Minneapolis, MN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Brief phone call. The HR rep that called me gave off the "fresh out of college" vibe. Not very professional in the way that she spoke and went about the interview process. I was asked about 2 minutes into the "phone interview" If I was willing to spend at least $21,000 on a vehicle so I could "qualify" for their reimbursement plan, which as best described by this young girl, was only for gas based on miles driven. Not to mention needing all of my own tools, so add another 1-2k for a grand total of needing to spend at least $23k to work here. Hah! what a joke. so basically, unless you have $23k laying around to go work for a company only to get paid in the 50-55K range, you're going to go massively into debt very quick, just to get a pretty low pay check. Horrible business plan Fanuc America.

    I am going to suggest learning the basics of financial stability. No one making 50-55k a year can actually afford a 21K+ vehicle, do you even debt to income ratio?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FANUC (Rochester Hills, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Their were several steps to the process that included at various stages all team members to meet with and ask questions . At no time was it awkward, more importantly I respected and appreciated that the team was a part of the hiring process. The value that was put on hiring the right fit individual for their team was highly respected. This interview has better prepared me for what I want and will be seeking in the next company I would like to work for.
