    About average. Several trips down as people were usually traveling. Seemed like nice people.

    Got verbal offer. Accepted it. Never heard from them again even after several calls and emails...not sure what to make of their ability to follow through or honor verbal offers.

    All I can say is...If they say "Good Morning," get it in writing.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Lighting Science Group (Satellite Beach, FL).

    Interview

    I emailed my resume to the HR department. Someone from the HR department called me to set up a phone interview.

The interview process began with a meeting with the HR Director, from there I interviewed with the quality manager, next I interviewed with the actual hiring manager, who also gave me a tour of the facility, the interview concluded with the HR Director.

    Embedded Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Satellite Beach, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lighting Science Group (Satellite Beach, FL) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I was hired during a hiring blitz, so it was very fast. I emailed my resume on a Monday, had a phone interview on that Wednesday, and in-plant interview on Thursday, and an offer that Friday. Normally it wouldn't be that quick. No one called my references.

    Interview Questions

    • None. The interview was quick, and no one seemed to have the time to dig very deep. (I have been pushed plenty hard since I got hired though and have made it through 3 layoffs.)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I told the in-house recruiter how much I had made as a contractor at GE, and he said he would try to match it with salary and benefits. I didn't tell him this but I had been out of work for 2 years and would have taken anything. I might have been able to get more, but I am satisfied. I had gone on a few interviews during the time I was out of work, and I didn't even get a call back, so I was grateful for the job.
