Principal Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albany, NY
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (Albany, NY) in April 2015.

Interview

It started off with a couple of phone interview first with the Hiring Manager followed by a technical interview. Then they invited to their Malta Office for a 6 hour interview.

1st Round - Basic Java Interview pretty low level usually for fresh graduates please don't expect new technologies
2nd Round - General Technical interview pretty open no agenda.
3rd Round - Manager interview background information and scenarios
4th Round - High level interview usually they are focused on the issues they are facing and I think currently grappling with it.
5th Round - Senior Manager
6th Round - HR Interview which seemed like checking if you are a candidate who will stick around for a long time.

Interview Questions

  • why you want to change??
    why you want to move to Albany?
    where do you see yourself in 5 years pretty much the standard interview got a feeling the company looks for PHd's or core bookish folks.
    It seems the interviewers are concerned if the candidate plans to stay long term in Albany giving the impression they are unable to attract good talent.
    It seems most of the work is outsourced so in short it is a co-coordinator job   Answer Question

    The interview process contained 2 phone interviews, followed by 1 on-site interview, and then 2 more phone interviews. The on-site interview lasted whole day, and required a presentation. The interview questions are not too technical and mainly about the resume. The interviewers are nice. The whole hiring process took 3-4 weeks.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (Malta, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewers and HR are ridiculously unprofessional: 1. while HR ask for expected salary, she has to mention they have another candidate in 3 weeks, very interesting and not confident 2. hiring manager is super nice at first sight, as he only ask very simple technical question. But he did not provide a stage to have the candidate show his talent in his way. 3. Another manager is interesting also, he asked a lot of tough questions and humiliate candidates, but all those questions are his area and not related to the job responsibilities. Are you show off your techniques to candidates?! 4. Another manager, he interrogated candidates and challenged your good temper. Asked a lot of UN-related questions. Many of them are personal, many of them are looking for other company's classified information. all Stupid managers!
    After interviews, never replied to you. Very rude and stupid! They basically tended to hire PhD to do work which was done by technicians in my current employer, and managers are proud of that quite well!

    Interview

    Pretty easy as they need more people and is lossening the requirements. They will even offer higher position to attract outsider. Remember to negotiate well before join the company as after joined, the internal opportunity is very little
