    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Masimo.

    Interview

    I've first got an email to schedule a phone screen with an HR intern. After that call, I was scheduled the next day for a longer phone interview with the HR manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly about why applying for the position? Why choosing their company? Long-term goals? Desired salary? I've asked for the salary range but they haven't answered the question and I did not insist.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Masimo.

    Interview

    Well, I didn't knew how they found my profile but glad they did.

    First, was a HR call about myself and stuffs like 15 mins call. Second they send me a basic DSP to code. HR explicitly said in mail to use any languages to code, I coded in Java in like 1 hour and send it back, took them 4 days to get back to me, saying they want the same to be coded in C, took another 1 hour to code and send back to them, after 3 week no response at all from them.

    So, just to be in the sync, I wrote to HR asking for the feedback and I was surprise to know that I am out of the process.

    I am super shocked, what the fuzz with this company?? Are they even hiring people ?? 1 question in DSP, I think anyone can solve in like 1 hours, plus I wasted like another 2 hours to include dynamic programming stuffs with coding guideline like variable naming stuffs and designing.

    Either, the one who checked the solution was so dumb to not understand the logic, coz I have put relatively minimal commenting, or they are not at all hiring but this is a huge blow to me as I can't believe anyone rejecting on the basis of a working, well designed and documented DSP problem being the fact I myself were a tech recruiter in one point of my career. Shocked!!!

    If anyone internals are reading this, buddy, I aint impressed and wasn't looking to join or continue for further rounds as I know you have a pretty scary 1 whole day, 15 one-on-one rounds, but this seems pretty unsettling. If you are a tech reviewer from inside, let your candidates know why you did what you did, I found this experience to be a reflection of your horrible accountability in your job. If you arent hiring, dont waste people time, ok!!!

    Saying, yes or no is one word, but it takes genuine effort to reach to that conclusion if you are a genuine individual else, it just a jerking around. Left with pretty much bitter taste.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Masimo (Irvine, CA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    After applying online, my 1st contact was an email with a programming test and self evaluation. No phone screen with an HR rep or anyone. So right off the bat I'm a little concerned about this company, so I research them here on glassdoor.
    It takes Masimo 4 weeks to review my programming test. I'm not kidding, 4 weeks. I've reviewed many programming tests when working for other employers, it's a 10 to 20 minute job.
    After 4 weeks, I'm contacted by an HR rep who wants to setup a one-on-one, hour long screen onsite with an engineer. At the onsite interview, I meet with an engineer who seems very solid and is a good guy, but he hasn't reviewed my programming test. So he has no idea if I can write code or follow instructions at all. The interview mainly consists of programming tests and seeming if I can follow instructions, which is what the initial test was supposed to cover.
    After it takes a week for HR to get positive feedback from the initial interview, it takes an additional week for HR to schedule a full 8 hours of interviews with everyone from the engineering staff, managers, and even VPs. At this point my internal BS detector is going off like a 3 alarm fire.
    At this all day interview, the 2nd interviewer is out, so a substitution is made. No problem there, things happen. After this 2nd interview, which in my view is going very well, the interview process is abruptly stopped because "something came up". From right there I know they didn't like some aspect of me.
    After 2 weeks I get a call from the HR rep. I'm told even though the team liked me, they didn't know where I'd fit in the organization.

    From the 3 engineers I met, I liked this company. The guys seemed reasonable, rational, and smart. Clearly the HR and management team need a lot of work. I was told during the interview process, few candidates are able to complete the initial programming test and complete it correctly using well written code and to the spec given, all of which I was told, I was able to do. I was also told they have a very difficult time hiring people. I can't imagine why.

    Interview Questions

    • None really. I found all the questions to be reasonable and of the type I normally ask during interviews. If you're a good engineer you really shouldn't have any technical challenges. If you're not a good engineer, it's going to come out very quickly.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Masimo (Irvine, CA) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Round 1: HR phone screen with recruiter to match a role with my skill set and interests.
    Round 2: Phone interview with hiring team leads to discuss my resume, get a grasp of my knowledge to see if they match my needs. The team I interviewed with was very friendly.
    Round 3: Coding test - recruiter sent an email with question but I'm more rusty than expected so I did not meet the deadline to submit it.
    From what the recruiter told me, round 4 is the on-site.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Masimo.

    Interview

    Met at a local hotel with immediate manager. Very nice and personable. Standard interview questions for this level position. Mostly about if I could handle local travel with some regional travel (later discovered wasn't true). Followed by phone interview with next level manager. Offer shortly after.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions about travel, family support. Should've been my clue that I'd never be home and statistics they were quoting weren't true.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Masimo (Irvine, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through employee referral. Next phone interview has been scheduled. In phone interview questions were related to the resume and from overlapping experience between and interviewer. Interview was about 45 mins. It was a positive experience and I was invited to onsite for full interview.

    I was asked to give a presentation of my background and experience for 45 mins. Later several(~15) one on one interviews were scheduled. They also organized a lunch with all interviewers. After the lunch they gave me tour of the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were very broad from very basic to open problems. I was also expected to go to the board, write and explain several equations. They also asked me to draw the diagram/flow chart of the instrument I designed. During the process there are several thought questions such as why don't you use XXXX instead of XXXXXX.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Masimo.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview. The man was very blunt; no "how are you?" or introductions or anything like that. It struck me as sort of rude and abrupt, but I guess some people like that style. I was definitely deterred by it and did not pursue more contact with the company.
