    I had a phone interview that went over some basic points and then proceeded to interview at the headquarters with the head of the department and another analyst. Typical interview questions. Some related to databases, other to HTML and CSS formatting. The interviewers were friendly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at FARO Technologies (Houston, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    One initial screening call with a recruiter, two Skype interviews with management, and one final face to face interview. They fumbled quite a bit with the salary and territory logistics. One manager contradicted another. It was clear that the company was restructuring and it seemed the right hand wasn't talking to the left.

    Interview

    The interview process was very pleasant. The tone was conversational but did look into experience. Although they are very concerned with metrics they also seemed to want to understand how you would fit into their regional team. Examples of being proactive and adaptable (as there will be a good amount of travel) also seemed key.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FARO Technologies.

    Interview

    The interview process began with a 30 minute call from HR. It moved forward to a 30 minute call from the hiring manager about a week later. Then it was a 1:1 meeting with the hiring manager. The overall process was fairly easy for this position. I felt well informed during every step of the process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at FARO Technologies in November 2014.

    Interview

    The process started with a call from a head hunter. Then a 1/2 hr call with HR, after that it was a call from a regional manager. That's where the process hit a wall. I was told after that call I would receive another call from corporate then receive an offer. Still waiting. It's been a couple months. The job hasn't been filled, and (according to the head hunter) I'm still in the game.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at FARO Technologies.

    Interview

    Technical interview with multiple people. Finished interviews with the HR manager. Very little feedback from HR manager and no response for several weeks - trying to setup the interview, whether it went positively or negatively. Extremely unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FARO Technologies (Lake Mary, FL).

    Interview

    Had one interview with the hiring managers. Communication was through a secretary. After the interview, did not hear anything back, not a "yes", not a "no". Followed up with the secretary a couple of times - no response. I'm sure they are busy, but that's just not a good way of doing it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at FARO Technologies (Orlando, FL) in February 2013.

    Interview

    HR a bit lacking in being coordinated and responsive to set up meeting times, logistics, etc.
    I had to call and followup/check-in multiple times - this is a bit nerve-wracking as an interviewee doesn't want to be a pest, yet still wants to be proactive and show interest and preparedness.
    Nice facility, great products and they are clearly proud of their rapid growth and equipment.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FARO Technologies in August 2011.

    Interview

    The phone interview was very casual. The manager, lead developer, and two other developers conducted the interview. A few days later I was asked to do a 1:1 interview with HR, followed by a group panel interview. The group panel interview was broken into two parts. The first part was more relaxed with 4 developers in the room. The second part of the group panel was draining. By then I was exhausted with questions. There were 5 developers asking questions on various software concepts one after the other. The entire interview including 1 hour lunch with the team took 5 hours.
