Process Engineer Interview

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in April 2017.

Interview

The entire process took about 2 months. I met the recruiter at NSBE 2017 conference and the next day got an interview with one of the hiring manager. The following week I heard from the same manager for an onsite interview. In two weeks I visited Intel Portland OR campus.

1. Started from 8 am with meeting the same manager who interviewed me at the conference.
2. There was an hour long presentation Ph.D. research. There were some interesting questions but basics. Most of the audience of the presentation was same who are going to take my one on one interview.
3. After the presentation, there were 5 one -on- one interview with Managers and area managers. Overall it was very casual talking and asking about conflict managements etc. some technical questions. One interviewer did her Ph.D. somewhat similar to what I did and she went nuts asking questions but I did calm her down!!! phew....
4. There was a two-hour lunch with process engineers. Best time to learn as much as you can about the Intel, work culture, work life balance etc.
5. After onsite, I waited 4 weeks but haven't heard back. So, I emailed the manager who invited me for onsite. He replied saying to give them 2-4 more weeks. Eventually, after 7 weeks I got email and phone call discussing the offer and later same day the offer.
6. Overall, it's definitely a long process. Just be patient and keep applying until you hear back from them. If you did well, you will definitely hear back!

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I gave me CV to a college recruiter. He called me 3 weeks later and did a phone interview and then invited me to an on-site interview in Portland. The interview was a week later and the company paid for all my travel expenses. Now it has been 2 weeks since the interview and i still haven't heard back. Many people has indicated that they received the rejection after 5 days and people who got an offer they heard back after almost a month.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview:
    Got a phone interview with a manager two days after I submitted my application. The interview was technical/behavior related, pretty straight forward. Be ready for the questions about trouble-shooting skills and equipment you have handled during graduate school. At the end of the call, I was invited for an on-site interview which was scheduled two weeks after the phone call.

    Onsite interview:
    Like everyone mentioned here, it was a all day process (8:30am-4:30pm). It started with the manager who did the phone interview with me. He quickly ran down the schedule for the day and talked more about the responsibilities and expectations (on-call duty) of the job. The following interview includes an 1-hour thesis presentation, 2-hour lunch, and 6 one-hour sessions with different managers. They really focused on trouble-shooting skill, handling equipment and conflict. During the 2- hour lunch, it was really a great opportunity for you to ask questions about the job, intel, work-life balance. Everyone I talked to was very nice, they made sure I felt comfortable and asked if I needed water or need to go to bathroom multiple times.

    At the end of the day, I was told I would hear back with results between 4-6 weeks. At the end of 5th week, I got email asking for background check information and visa status. After 7 weeks, I got the phone call to discuss about the offer, and the offer next day. I did not negotiate because the offer itself is very competitive.

    I had multiple recruiters reached out to me for the offer which is a bit confusing. Just want to put it out here that you might expect to be contacted by different recruiters during the process for the same position.

    Overall, it was a great experience. I felt comfortable and relax during the interview. Everyone who interviewed me seems happy to work there. I also saw people in the hall way and they all looked satisfied.

    Reasons for Declining

    Job duty is dull, and locks in for ten years to be an expert in one thing. Also concern of layoff and unable to deliver for the high expectations.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Portland, OR) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very standard interview process, but much slower. The interview consisted of a phone interview with (I believe) an experienced employee who was in the department I was interviewing for. This followed by a full day on site interview. Very standard but it took a number of weeks between the phone interview and on site interview and then more than a month after that before the offer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview: 30 minutes, questions about PhD research.

    Onsite interview: Onsite interview was scheduled one month after the phone interview. Asked to report at 9:15 am. First, hiring manager who did the phone screening described the duties and responsibilities of a process engineer and briefly talked about Intel. Then, one hour long one-on-one interview with a group leader. He asked questions mostly about PhD research (similar to phone interview but more detailed). Next, one hour presentation on PhD research in front of two junior engineers. They asked only basic questions since their research background were different than mine and they took me to lunch afterwards. After lunch, another one hour long one-on-one interviews with a different group leader, questions asked were very similar to the first one. Interview with an area manager was scheduled but was canceled for unknown reason.

    Offer: One week after the onsite, received an email from fadv regarding information for background check and official offer letter came 25 days after onsite interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The process began with my resume submission, which was followed up within 24 hours with a 1 hour phone interview. Heard immediately they were interested in on-site interview (Hillsboro, OR). Scheduled for interview within 3 weeks. Interview included: 45 minute seminar presentation, technical interview, behavioral interview, lunch with employees, lab tour, and area manager interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone interview: Wanted clarity of explanation over the phone w.r.t. dissertation research. Wanted general understanding of my problem solving method. Also wanted to know about experience instrumental troubleshooting. Asked basic behavioral questions (conflict resolution, working in a team vs working alone, etc).

      On-site interview: Same types of questions but more time...each interview was an hour. During the presentation they asked questions about why certain decisions were made. Generally looking for depth of knowledge and well thought-out research method. Behavioral was more geared to work ethic w.r.t. leadership, teamwork, solo work, initiative, etc. Area Manager interview was a summary of both technical and behavioral. Seemed like a test to see how concisely and directly I could answer questions.

      "WHY INTEL?" was my last question.   Answer Question
