    Director Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carlsbad, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rigaku Americas (Carlsbad, CA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Met with 5 people who mostly asked about past experience and how it applied to the position. They were one on one with multiple people who were at the same level or that were required to interface with frequently.
    The people were long time employees who had a good perception of the person they were looking for. With everything seeming a strong "yes" they spent five days reviewing the candidates then said they were not hiring anyone who interviewed. I believe they did not know what they wanted and said there budget was less than industry expense for the position. Maybe they didn't know what they should have to pay.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Rigaku Americas (The Woodlands, TX) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an IT recruiter and interviewed a week later. My interview was performed in a storage room as there were no conference rooms available. A bit strange but served its purpose. The interview was mostly performed by the CIO. The DBA had no questions but instead spoke of personal issues and this seemed to be encourage by the CIO.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical and some behavioral questions. Can't remember any specific questions. The interview was fairly relaxed as interviews go and took about one hour.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase was typical. The recruiter offered me the salary and I believed it to be fair so I accepted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Rigaku Americas.

    Interview

    No phone interview, In person interview by Customer Service head and Operation Manager. Both asked different questions since one didn't know the duties of the job and other was new to the position and company. Based on interview they didn't have much of an idea, what the position would actually involved. This was new position, for division that was moving from the southwest to the northeast. Ask a few technical questions. Did say they would contact once they made a decisions, but I never heard back from them, even when asked what was going on with position via email.
