    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tualatin, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lam Research (Tualatin, OR) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Interview by panel. Very long and defeating process. Not very difficult as far as questions go. After the interview they were very unprofessional, didn't have the decency to let me know I wasn't hired after going for an in person interview. Prior to the end of the interview, they acted extremely positive and nice. Seems like it was just a show. Ignored calls and emails to follow up. Some of their interviewers seemed very annoyed to have to speak with me. Many generic questions.
