    R&D Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Rosa, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Keysight Technologies (Santa Rosa, CA).

    Interview

    2 step process, one Skype ( coding) and one on-site. Skype interview was alright, basic coding stuff to see if you know how to code. On-site interview consisted of 30 minute presentation and 5 different interviews. Interviews were brutal. They expect you to basically know everything. One behavioral and 4 technical. The 4 technical interviews consisted of the following: going through schematic and data sheets, fixing a code, and 2 op amps heavy interview. Each interview get a bit condensing because I wouldn’t get the answer correct and I can tell the disappointment. Really glad I didn’t get an offer though. As I was on site, I got a really bad vibe of the entire place. I felt like Keysight is an older company where you go after having experience, it isn’t for a fresh grad( as I am). Overall, the technical interviews were tough and if you aren’t really smart, it will feel as they are looking down on you.

    HR contacted me days later for reimbursement fees and 2 months later, no reimbursement and HR’s email doesn’t exist anymore.

    Communications Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Keysight Technologies (Santa Rosa, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Cielo Talent acts as the recruiting agent for Keysight Technologies. Speaking as a candidate previous employed by other high tech companies, Cielo's communication and follow up was dreadful.

    In regards to Keysight, the interview process included 3 phone and 2 on site interviews. At the conclusion of each interview, I was left in the dark about what the next steps were. Adding to my frustration was how slow Keysight's interview process was. My 5 interviews took literally 2 months to complete. Point being, I invested a lot of time and energy in this endeavor.

    As of this writing it has been a month since I last heard from Cielo Talent. Apparently the professional courtesy of final communication or status update regarding the position will never be sent.

    If this mode of recruiting talent is typical of Keysight, I am a happy I was not hired to work there.

    The interview process is is what you would expect from most companies. There was a 30-40 minute phone interview. After this, there is an on-site interview which is around 3 hours long. For me, I was in a conference room, and every 30 minutes someone new would come in and ask me different technical questions. All technical questions in person and a few personal questions over the phone.
