    Firmware Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Laird (Holly, MI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process included two phone screens, one with HR & one with Senior Engineers. On-site Interview followed quickly after that, there were a number of firmware design questions from the Group of Engineers that interviewed me, most I could answer, a few I couldn't. The rest of the interview was simply getting to know management and what development occurred at that location. My only concern is that the process may have been easy for me because of my token status.

    Interview Questions

    • One question I do remember, because I should have known the answer, was how do you detect a stack overflow - ie the pointer wrote past the top of the stack. You handle it the same way you would if you created your own controlled memory heap.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate - and I should have. I would suggest others to negotiate on salary.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Laird (Detroit, MI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Technical Interview, asked about solid mechanics, beams, basic design concept for fasteners, o-rings and other stuff. CAD test had to model stuff in SolidWorks, and Aptitude questions as well. Interview process gave a sense of accomplishment and reason for being selected. Rather than other interviews which go with questions that do not have definitive answers and you wonder why you din't get an offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Laird (Holly, MI) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Received email from LinkedIn/Glassdoor with job on the list. I clicked it, looked right up my alley, so I applied. Was directed to their job website...create id, the usual.
    Answered a bunch of questions (nothing unusual) but could not get it to accept/submit. You MUST fill in ALL fields with N/A. Finally got it to submit. Opinion - very poor HR software.

    Received call from HR person in Earth City MO. Asked a few usual questions, limited technical. Was told next step would be technical phone screen.

    Email a couple of days later asking me for in person. Arranged time/date.

    Was emailed an interview schedule of people/times. Started with VP. Typical upper management overview interview, explaining company and products. Professionally done.

    Next was two from SW. One was out and out belligerent. Attacked everything I said, challenged every answer. Was more like an interrogation than an interview. Immediately decided this was one person I would NOT want to work with.

    Next was HR person. Standard HR behavioral interview with dealing with workplace conflicts (maybe this guy is known for his problems?), accomplishments, benefits etc. Professionally done.

    Project guy was next. Questioned experiences on resume. Nothing difficult. Professionally done.

    HW team was next. They were looking for some specific answers which I guess I wasn't giving them regarding competence working with HW. My read was they wanted to make sure every problem wasn't automatically "a hardware bug." Professionally done.

    One person on the interview schedule I never saw with no explanation.

    Observations....
    Everyone was wearing jackets and sweaters. While it is November in Michigan, it was in the upper 30's. Conclusion- building HVAC has a lot to be desired.
    Facility is cramped and dirty. Floors were highly worn and looked like they hadn't seen a mop in a long time.
    Given the salary and the oxymoron of "employee benefits", you'd do better getting a job on an automobile assembly line. Better working conditions, more holidays, better medical, better everything.
    HW guys were particularly bent on not getting some finger pointing SW guy. I surmised this is a major problem.

    Conclusion....
    Interview was scheduled by HQ and not properly delegated to someone locally. Very haphazardly handled. Other than the VP interview, I was rushed through everything. Promised plant tour never happened. At no time was I ever able to get in a question of my own.
    As for the SW belligerent, my take was he dumped me before he got into the room. Whether this was an EEOC problem or he was just a major sphincter, IDK nor do I care. Big shot know it all wanted to just push people around. HR needs a serious talk with that guy. I figure he's the major problem the HW guys were digging at.

    After one week, sent a WTH? email. "Still interviewing." Will not bother with sending one further.
