    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IPG Photonics (Oxford, MA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Received interview for an academic-year internship without applying. Had a phone interview to schedule a time and had a 1 hour interview. No one from engineering showed so they had two guys from the assembly floor interview me. HR asked for a second phone interview to meet with engineers, I declined since I was home for break, yet the next day I had an offer. Few months later my boss admitted he hired me without evening asking the two guys who interviewed me what they thought.

    Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IPG Photonics (Oxford, MA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The process began with a Skype interview that was just a quick chat to see if I was a good fit for the position. After this, an in-person interview was scheduled. The people at IPG Photonics were very accommodating during my in-person interview and really tried to make me feel comfortable. The interview consisted of engineering questions, personal life questions, critical thinking questions, and more.The in-person interview took three hours, due in part to the fact that I interviewed with three different engineers, one at a time. This was great for creating a clear picture of what working at the company was like, but it was also time consuming. There was also a Solidworks test during the interview that was a timed challenge.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at IPG Photonics (Oxford, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interview went really well, References to be checked. I guess I wasted my time. I give up! What is going on here? I could go on but what is the point of interviewing someone if they are only going to turn them down becuase they are overqualified. They knew that before we went in the interview room. This is dumb. Some of us are definitely over qualified for any position. That just means companies leave the best of us on the shelf. This is dumb thinking.
