    Interview

    Got two calls from them. The first interview was from a recruiter. She asked me some basic questions, nothing technical. The second call was from a group leader. He asked me about my graduate research. He is very knowledgeable about surface chemistry and really interested in my research.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Long and Boring. Have you ever seen Office Space? It was kind of like that. I think one of the quys even had suspenders. Do I have to write more to satisfy your algorithm? If this were a real human you wouldn’t be messing with me like this.

    Product Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lam Research (Fremont, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The entire interview lasted from 8:30AM to about 6:00PM. Although it was a long interview process, it was worthwhile as you can gain much insight into the company from the diversity of people interviewing you. You'll need to prepare and present a 45 minute to 1 hour presentation on a topic of your choice (choose wisely). The audience is a mixture of interested employees and interviewers. Nine people interviewed me in all and had lunch with the main hiring manager where he got to know me better.

    Electrical Engineer III Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lam Research (Fremont, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Called by HR personnel and talked on the phone for about 20 minutes about projects. This is primarily to see if the applicant has a broad enough background to move forward. The next step was an off-site interview with the manager of the particular department. That interview was primarily talking about school projects (new college grad with no work experience, if the applicant has prior work experience then these conversations would focus on previous work projects). After that there was an on-site half day interview process that consisted of having lunch with a few potential colleagues. Then there were 8 half hour interviews with senior engineers and technical managers. These interviews were primarily based on talking about school projects and also seeing if I would fit in with the group. Also, one of the half hour talks was with the HR person that had initially talked to me over the phone. This particular conversation focused on the company and its structure and benefits. After this process there is the potential for a full day interview in which there are more conversations with engineers and there would also be a technical review presented by you to a group of engineers. This technical review is where the candidate discusses some technical thing for 45 minutes and then is followed up by a 15 minute Q&A. I did not make it to that stage, but it was mentioned to me as I was going through the process.

    Interview Questions
