    Interview

    Well, to begin, I was called in for an in-person interview at STAAR for the role of Quality Intern after like a brief conversation with the HR over the phone.
    I travelled really far to interview with them and to my surprise, I was barely asked anything at the interview. My interview lasted no more than 5 mins, wherein I was not asked a single question related to my background or experience. They asked how soon I could start and everything but not a single job-related question. After 5 mins they said they would get back with me.
    Later that day, after sending a thank you email, I receive an email saying they selected someone 2 weeks back so will not move forward with me.
    It was a sheer waste of money and time for me. They should have informed me way back if they already selected instead of wasting candidate's time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at STAAR Surgical (Monrovia, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Interview with 6 people 30 minutes each, all in leadership roles across different departments so you get a good feel for the company as a whole. Standard questions were asked but they actually seemed interested in the answers provided. It was more a test of how you interact with others than your credentials (intangibles vs tangibles).

    Interview Questions

      - Why STAAR?
