    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at KLA-Tencor (Milpitas, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, and got a mail from a recruiter asking me to come for an onsite Interview. As I wasn't in the US, we organised a phone interview that lasted 45 minutes. We went through my resume and they only asked me a lot of questions about my projects. I interviewed with the team manager and an engineer from the team, they were really nice, but I also very neutral in the way they were talking to me.

    Interview

    It was pretty much all behavioral. Focused a lot on what technologies you've used in the past and what projects you have applied them to. You speak to the manager and the team lead and then to the HR coordinator, all very friendly.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KLA-Tencor.

    Interview

    First, over the phone interview with the team lead. If you do that well, they fly you in for in-person interviews at their location.

    For the in-person interview(s), there are 5 separate interviews. Three with two team members and the team lead, where you'll go through some C++/C# interview questions using the white board, as well as find bugs/write simple programs on paper.

    Two additional interviews with higher-ups such as engineering managers and also a brief talk with the recruiter from HR. Lengthy process of 5+ hours. Be prepared on your technical stuff and specifically your C++ skills and usage of pointers/memory.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at KLA-Tencor (Milpitas, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to kla tencor through an employee referral. Got a call from the hr and he talked a lot about the role and what would be expected of me if i took the job. I was pumped about the job because it matched my skillset. I didn't hear from the hr for over a month and then he scheduled my on site interview. I interviewed with 5 other candidates. The interview started with a presentation by one of their diriectors introducing us about the company and what it did. Then we had to learn image processing algorithms mostly related to comparing images and drawing a histogram to show which algorithm was better and why. Then we had 6 one on one interviews with managers from each of the app dev team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KLA-Tencor (Milpitas, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Met up with 5 other potential candidates in Milpitas and had lunch with interviewers while listening to a KLA-Tencor introduction presentation. We were then split up to have individual 30 minute interviews with the Apps development hiring team. They asked basic team-based scenario questions and some estimation questions to see how well we can think on our feet. One of the interviewers tested us to see if we could come up with methods to determine if there are defects in a picture, assuming we are given the original picture as a basis.
