I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SRI International (Menlo Park, CA) in January 2014.

Interview

Mixture of lab demo's / questions and office interviews. Also had to give a presentation on graduate work. Had to draw and explain things on whiteboard. They provided lunch and a tour of all the laboratories. They asked what I'd like to work on and my ideas based on what I had seen.

    Interview

    HR Recruiter will call you for an informal interview if you fit the qualification and set you up with the department interviewers, usually 2 or 3. It takes about 3-4 weeks to finally get brought in. The interviewers may look intimidating but they area very casual.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at SRI International.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter for the position that the company had advertised but was low-balled with another low-paying temporary position while being interviewed. Company seems quite disorganized in its scheduling of interviews and does not seem to do its research at what potential candidates are applying for. Sheer waste of time.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SRI International.

    Interview

    All day affair. Met with the most of the group I would be working for including directors, managers, senior staff, as well as peers. Gave a one hour presentation on past work to showcase skill set and what knowledge I possessed that was useful to the group. Although everyone's experience is probably different the interviews were not technical and were to judge how well I would fit in/work with the group.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was difficult or unexpected (or I was just prepared for them), HR rep. asked standard interview questions, where as everyone else asked technical and made "what we do here" statements.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Application said "desired salary" and that's what I received. No negotiation required.
