    Product Development Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oakley (Foothill Ranch, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was at Oakley HQ in FootHill Ranch, CA. First I had a phone screen with HR, then technical interview with manager and Director of the product development engineering group. I was called for onsite interview immediately. It's the most casual interview that I have ever attended. The interview schedule was from 11.30-3.30 pm. It included one by one interview, starting with HR and then different manager from different groups. The interview was fairly straightforward with STAR based technique. What I observed or understood from the interview process is they don't look for technical competency of the candidate, but instead they look how the candidate fits with the Oakley values and culture. The HR lady at Oakley is really nice and helpful, as they had to do a lot of arrangement to make me fly from Florida to California.

    Although the pay was less as compared to my present job and location, I really wanted to work at Oakley, as I really liked the job profile and the people I interviewed with at Oakley. But eventually, they closed the position without hiring anyone due to budget cuts.

    Production Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Foothill Ranch, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Oakley (Foothill Ranch, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Short initial phone interview, then set up in person interview. The interview was standard for management position. It involved 3 rounds of interviews with different personnel, different levels of management and team members. 1st round was a panel of 3, 2nd round was a panel of 2, and 3rd round was a 1 on 1. I assume the lineup will depend on position team and department. There was also a small tour of the production area.

    Reasons for Declining

    Although I did initially accept the offer, my current employer made me a counter offer after submitting my 2 week notice. It was an offer that I couldn't pass up.
    But now that a little time has passed I'm 2nd guessing if I made a mistake not taking the offer. The facility is amazing the people were great. The interview process was a good experience, I genuinely liked the team that interviewed me. I have nothing negative to say about Oakley.

    Interview

    Once I applied, I stopped by the store to introduce my myself, and we set up an interview time. A few days later I have the interview and after a background check I was hired! Total time went by quickly, about a week and a half I would say!

    Senior Designer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Oakley (Foothill Ranch, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Oakley made the interview process as fluid and comfortable for me as possible. The team flew me a day earlier and set me up in a hotel nearby as to not rush me in the morning. On the day of my interview, I sat down 1-on-1 with a few key people and shared my refined work as well as my rough sketches, which was very well-received. The team was excited to see process and unfinished work which showed me they value the working design process. The interview was very informative and conversational as well. The team was able to give me great insight to how the design process works at Oakley and how they see my work and contribution there. I was glad that they gave me both a portfolio and cultural interview to help me see if the environment is one I would be happy in. The interview was both beneficial to me and Oakley. John, the sr talent recruiter was prompt, answered all my questions, and was respectful to me the entire process. I hold Oakley in the highest regards and can see that the company respects talent and people in the industry.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Oakley (West Los Angeles, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I met Oakley at my college's career fair. Handed them my resume and had a brief conversation about manufacturing. They emailed me a few weeks later to invite me to their headquarters for a tour and interview. Oakley did not provide transportation to the headquarters. The tour was an hour and the interview was an hour. Dress was informal and the whole thing was very casual. Interview had one interviewer and two to three interviewees.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oakley.

    Interview

    It was very relaxed, we went to the cafeteria in the mall and did the interview there. It started off with "tell me about yourself" and then went into the standard questions that were read off the page. They were similar to other interviews so there wasn't much that was surprising.
