    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Vistakon (Jacksonville, FL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was called for a screen interview with a HR Specialist. Questions were mostly behavioral and what caught my eye from the job posting. The behavioral ones were regarding team work and so on. After that interview, which went excellently well, I was informed that the HR Specialist's notes would be passed down to the Hiring Manager. About four (4) days after that, the hiring manager emailed asking for a date to perform a 30 minute phone screening. We settled on it and when the day came, the questions were purely process based and knowledge based. No behavioral questions. Just checking how much you know and how you perform process improvements.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vistakon (Jacksonville, FL) in June 2012.

    Interview

    It was just a bit of a wait to hear back after applying to a position, only because of the background check process! Over-all, not bad at all when I compare it to my interview with a bank for a P.B. Postion. ( Banks don't play around! ) of coarse I was still nervous when I went in for the interview. Considering, it's one of the largest companies in the world. Like all other interviews, if you do your homework and preparation then you should not have a problem! They strongly encourage promotion from within the company.

    Optical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Vistakon in May 2012.

    Interview

    A recruiter for Vistakon got in touch with me while I was working for a direct competitor. I believe I was about 2 years into my job, and although it seemed like Vistakon's opening was a position at about the same level, I kept an open mind and a phone interview was scheduled. Initially, it was with a manager type who's name I forgot, but a couple hours before the scheduled interview, it was changed to an optical engineer named Greg. Greg told me during the interview that he goes way back with my PhD advisor which was good news as I thought we could then go deeper in our conversation. However, upon talking to my PhD advisor the next day, he said he never heard of him, and I remain confused till this day.

    Interview Questions

    • There was really only one question: why are you most excited about for this position? Most of the conversation was basically navigating around my current work at the time, and since I couldn't disclose any of it, it made for some awkward, interesting, and challenging conversation.   1 Answer
