    Entry Level Engineer/Production Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WaferTech (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was a good professional interview. 4 rounds of interviews with 5 of the Engineering Managers and the CEO. Ended with a Plant Tour. This was a clean room situation, no makeup, no perfumes or colognes. Which was part of what made it not the right fit for me, but going into this interview make sure you're wearing clothes that you can slip a clean suit over. Make sure you get the booties on good and tight. Nothing makes a plant tour worse than having to stop and adjust your booties every few yards.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at WaferTech (Camas, WA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    First phone interview with recruiter then 2nd interview was via phone with hiring manager. Typical scripted questions such as tell me about a time when you "fill in the blank" regarding training. The hiring manager informed me that she had a few other candidates to interview then a decision would be rendered to bring in the final few candidates for a face to face. I then asked more about the hiring process such as; would all candidates be notified either way and she informed me that all candidates would receive either an invitation to move forward or notification that the organization is no longer pursuing their candidacy. Following the phone interview, I forwarded a thank you email to both the recruiter and hiring manager and again requested a follow up communication as they moved forward in the hiring process but sadly, my request went unnoticed and unacknowledged. Moreover, despite the hiring manager’s statement that all candidates would be notified, I received no further communications or notice as they move further in their process. For me, their lack of communications and integrity speaks volumes and I am relieved not to have moved forward with my application. Amusingly, I saw the position re-posted a few weeks ago!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WaferTech (Camas, WA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and had a phone interview with HR and then another phone call from the hiring manager. The interview at the facility was long but I met with many departments who are involved in hiring. A few days later, I had another call from another engineer. Then the HR lady let me know that I didn't get they picked another person but that they hire engineers a lot and she would let me know when another equipment eingeering job opened up. They hire a lot of engineers right out of college.

    Entry Level Equipment Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at WaferTech in February 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was initially 2 phone screens within the same week, followed by a promised on-site interview which was never scheduled.

    The first phone screen was with a non-technical recruiter about one week after the application was submitted, and consisted of a few behavioral questions, basic resume-related questions, and questions about logistics.

    A follow-up "technical" interview was scheduled with the supervisor of the department, which lasted about 30 minutes. Because the position was entry-level, "technical" questions were limited to elaboration on past experiences. I did extensive background research on the semiconductor manufacturing process and undoubtedly left a strong impression on with the interviewer.

    3 days later I was contacted to schedule a flight for a final on-site interview, which would last all day. After being told logistics would be worked out soon, I received an email the next day saying their hiring manager would be "out-of-town for several weeks", and that while my interview was postponed, I was guaranteed an interview and would be updated on the situation. After no communication, I emailed them exactly two weeks later. Their hiring manager had coincidentally returned that day, and I was told I would be updated on the situation once they had settled back into things. After radio silence for another week, I emailed again and was told that there would be a meeting held the following Monday to discuss the situation. Two days after this supposed meeting I emailed them one last time asking for an update, and was told that they had decided to put the hiring process on hold indefinitely for this position. Unprofessional to say the least, I'm baffled at how this situation was handled.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WaferTech (Camas, WA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR and had a phone interview set up with the facilities Engineering manager. Conversation was roughly half an hour. About a week later I received an official job offer via email and had to scan and send my acceptance. The interview questions were very basic, I don't think they are too worried about interns because they usually don't do extremely critical work for WaferTech.

    Process Integration Engineer - Entry Level Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Camas, WA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at WaferTech (Camas, WA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Initially I had a phone interview with an HR which took about an hour. The conversation was focused on "behavioral questions" and my understanding of the responsibilities of a PI engineer.
    A week later, I had a phone interview with an engineer in the PI group. The inteview was mostly focused on my background and previous expriences, also some questions about layout design of a circuit.
    Two weeks later, I had an on-site interview. First, I had a 20-min presentation (the subject of my choice) for a group of people, who then aksed me some questions about my presenatation. After that I had several group and 1:1 interviews. In all the interviews, the questions were mostly behavioral (especially focusing on managing the pressure and a busy schedule and dealing with colleagues), also some questions about the prcoess of integrated circuits fabrication.
    The on-site inteview was very informative, in all the sessions the inteviewers gave me lots of information about the responsibilities of the job, and the other processes. (I should add that all people, including HR, engineers, and managers were so nice and helpful.) After 3 weeks, I got a letter indicating that I was rejected.

    My analysis of the interview process and the result: This position was an entry level PI. Everyone assured me that I could enter into this position with the basic theoritical knowledge and could gain the practical industrial exprience during the work (since lots and lots of trainings were available). Based on these issues, I could be a good candidate. I think a reason of my rejection could be the fact that I didn't have the exprience of working in a high-pressured industrial manufacture before.
