    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Veeco Instruments (Plainview, NY) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Interview was good. Very nice people to talk to on the phone. Travel arrangements were done quickly and rapidly. The interview process onsite consisted of 1-1 interviews with people from the department. A lot of technical questions were asked; challenging fundamentals and problem solving. Ideas revolved around past experience. A lot of them were specific to the job, but they weren't grilling you. The teams wanted to understand how much did I know about the field/job

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Veeco Instruments.

    Interview

    Unnecessarily protracted - to the advantage of HR.
    Keep in mind, they are working on a technology that is old and researched to death. Couple that with the fact that their business is on a decline (they are consolidating) and it's clear that their "offers" aren't really offers at all. It's a scam to see which one of the interviewees will accept the lowest offer - yes, they lack basic ethics - and if you don't accept at first, then they will find something to deny you outright.

    STAY AWAY FROM VEECO.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Veeco Instruments.

    Interview

    Applied Online. Was called for a brief phone interview a week later. Went to the office to meet with department head. Spoke to him casually of prior experience and educational background. Was then sent to speak to two other employees in the division, and finally the New Jersey branch manager. The whole process was very relaxed but lasted about half a day all told.

    Final Test Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Veeco Instruments (Kingston, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There was a question and answer segment, a written test on electronics and gas flow/hydraulic systems, and then a portion in which the supervisor brought out a mock setup of a gas system and asked questions about the components. All in all, comprehensive process, but not impossible to complete. I went in there with little to no experience in gas and hydraulic systems and still got the job

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Veeco Instruments (Somerset, NJ) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I interviewed with five people. The first three were one on one and one was with two people. The job description that I had received from HR was really not accurate and completely wrong. The details did not match the actual Job. I later found out that it was from a different division.
    The interviewers were all nice and professional and they asked reasonable questions
