    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Keysight Technologies (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Keysight Technologies.

    Interview

    I had applied for several positions. A recruiter contacted me and said I was a great fit for one of them, asked me to fill out a questionnaire, and was even more interested after that. We spoke a few times over the phone and through email and then I finally did the phone interview with the hiring manager. She was an hour late calling me, her tone was that of she was being bothered, then when she learned I was a medically retired veteran the interview pretty much ended after that. I filled out the voluntary disclosure form when applying, so there was no need to lie. I sent a thank you email to both the hiring manager and the recruiter (who had previously been responding to my emails within an hour) and never received a reply back from either of them.

    Had a phone interview that asked about my projects. Received an e-mail that I will have an on-campus interview. On campus interview went well. Asked about CMOS, Op Amps, Low Pass Filter Active/Non-Active, some hardware coding logic. Received an e-mail to have an interview at the site in San Jose. Arrived and had 5 different interviewers, 2 were really easy and asked about my interests and projects. The first two asked about SPI and D flip flops. Also asked about non-inverting op-amps. Last interviewer went over a schematic and walked through each component and asked me to analyze what is going on.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Keysight Technologies.

    Interview

    First I had an on campus interview the same day as the career fair followed by a Phone interview that was more behavioral and then an all day onsite interview with 5 to 6 people. Mostly they get to know you, show you around to see if you are a good fit. Questions range from behavioral to questions regarding projects and experience on the resume. For the technical interview, they ask basic circuit questions ranging from op-amps, basic Filter design and response, to basic control theory for open loop and closed loop gains. Also, some digital questions on D flipflops.
