    Contract Attorney Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at JDSU (Milpitas, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I had two back-to-back interviews with senior management. Both were conducted over the phone. They didn't really ask me many questions so much as described the role. They were in need of someone quickly, and wanted to ensure my personalty was a good fit. The two interviews were 30 minutes each, and a decision was made a few hours later.

    Interview Questions

    • As stated, they didn't really ask questions. They explained the role and wanted me to ask my questions. I asked about company culture, who I'd be working with, potential for the position to expand beyond expected, type of work I'd be doing, etc. They did ask about my expectation of the role, but did not inquire as to my skill-set; I suppose my resume experience proved sufficient.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JDSU (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interview started be email asking about availability for phone interview. Phone interview was scheduled and occurred the following week. Interview was successful, however, when recruiter asked what the salary was at previous employer, it was too high. She was going to check with VP HR and also speak to the hiring manager to possibly schedule another interview. Just received email from recruiter if I'm still available and I replied, but have not received response from recruiter. Process by email is slow.
