    interview from hell, very unprofessional. Interviewers do not read your resume, neither they believe anything you say or present. the only thing they believe is chasing FB, Twitter and Instagramm account of people who happened to have the same mane as you are. I happened to have a very common name and no presence in social media, just LinkedIn.

    Interview

    Two rounds of interviews, had coffee and a snack at the end of the second interview with three managers. Had to negotiate up from the minimum salary they thought I would accept.

    Always negotiate up from the initial offer. A company will offer the least they think you will accept.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Newport (Irvine, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I first met the HR representative at my school career fair. I told her my research interests and she said that I would be a good candidate for some of the projects at Newport Corporation, so I handed in my resume to her.

    I tried to follow up by calling and contacting her through email. However, I didn't hear back for about two months.

    She finally called me out of the blue to let me know of my qualifications as a possible intern for the summer. Unexpected, but we arranged to set up an interview with the professionals who would oversee and tend to my interview.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the interviewers brought a miniature optical mount on which three optics stood. He asked me a few technical questions, like describing the structure and what would it be used for.   Answer Question
