    Interview

    The interview was exactly as you'd expect; I met, alone, with what would have been my immediate superior. We talked for roughly half an hour on what was expected in the job, and if it was something I was interested in. Everything was fair enough.

    Reasons for Declining

    I just wasn't interested in the job. The on-paper listing made the job sound different than it was. Interviews are 2-sided, don't forget that!

    Material Analyst Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Corvallis, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Corvallis, OR) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I have been interviewed for materials analyst engineer position with HP at Corvallis, OR. The whole interview process is Extremely Intimidating and very tiresome process.
    12-15 people has interviewed me and they expect to solve the scientific problems within a couple of minutes. I think 2 - 4 interviewers who have just bachelor degree asked me some stupidity questions on corrosion of circuit boards, infant they do not have complete knowledge of corrosion. They asked me about the mechanism of inkjet, laser jet and 3d printing. Based on your resume and background they come up with some standard questions to test your analytical and technical skills. During the interview I strongly felt that i was taking the materials science exam. They asked questions from their notes and they don't give enough time to think. Overall i did not enjoy the whole interview process and i don't recommend.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me about binary phase diagram (Lever Rule) ?   Answer Question
