    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lutron (Coopersburg, PA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It started with a recruiter with a behavioral question, and then followed up with an engineer for technical interview phone screen. If you passed this stage, they would ask you to come onsite. The company HR was a bit disorganized with no mention on how expenses being reimburse and the procedure of the interview process. I came into onsite at 8.15am and this is how it goes
    1) tour of the lutron demo room
    2) technical interview consists of embedded software problem
    3) brainstorming of the problem that is unrelated to the position that you are being interviewed (not quite sure why this is being held). Must be good with basic physics
    4) lunch with one of the employees follow up with tour of the building
    5) Interview with the senior Hr and consists of some behavioral question

    If you do not get a role play during your interview process. It is most likely that you did not get the job, and please stop wasting your time and move on with your other interview process with other companies. I think i did really well on the first embedded technical interview question. I did an average on the brainstorming interview stage. I am not quite sure why i was being rejected but seem to me that the company usually bring in a lot of people for onsite even though they have a limited number of job opening in the company. The HR was very disorganized with no mention of how the interview being conducted. I was left waiting in the room alone for numerous number of time

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lutron (Coopersburg, PA) in December 2008.

    Interview

    I applied the job from the job posting on my college job portal. I then got a call for a phone screening interview.

    The phone interview lasted for half hour. I was asked a couple of questions involving power,voltage,current relationships..I was given a simple circuit containing bulbs,the bulb ratings were given to me and I was asked to find out a couple of p,v,i parameters about the circuit. Then I was asked about my internship experience and questions about my academic projects. I was told I was selected for the next on site interview after a few days and they flew me to Coopersburg, Pa.

    They got me to the hotel the evening before the interview day for an informal dinner with some of the employees and other interview candidates. We had a good time talking to them and know more about the company. The next morning myself , along with the other candidates were taken to the headquarters. My first interview was a technical round. Two guys interviewed me. Most of the questions dealt with basic circuit analysis containing bulbs with different ratings arranged in different topologies in the circuit. The next round was a presentation that I gave on a project i did at school. Thats it.

    Interview Questions

    • One question dealt with the basic circuit analysis with a circuit containing three bulbs arranged, with different ratings.It is not a difficult one but you really have to be strong in basic circuit analysis   Answer Question
    • Describe how would you use a micro-controller to count the number of times there is a high voltage level on a bus.   1 Answer
