    I've got a call from HR first then another call from a hiring manager.
    My hiring manager was late to call more than 10 min. but it was okay. The call was very short and I was invited for on-site interview.

    On interview, 5 interviewrs were arranged. However they were very disorganized. 3 of them were not shown on time. I was wait for more than 10 -20 min. Two of them complained about their job functions which was not professional at all. I felt the job or company looks slow & not mch attractive.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KLA-Tencor (Milpitas, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I was recommended by a previous professor which basically means that the professor did the initial screening. After that it was an in person interview with my manager that was very casual (Khakis and a collared shirt, suit and tie not needed in my case). The interview was pretty basic. This probably depends on your manager and group though.
