I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Anton Paar USA (Houston, TX) in February 2016.
Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter within one or two days. He asked my interests in the position and briefly discussed my qualifications on my resume. Next was a phone interview with the FSE manager. He was a nice guy. Asked about my previous experience and why I was interested in working for the company. I guess that went well. Next I received an email from the recruiter asking me to take an online assessment. It ranged from math to personality questions. Took an hour or so to complete. After submitting that I received a call again to come in for a face to face interview in Virginia. I was originally told I would be meeting with two managers. Upon arrival more people kept coming into the interview room. I didn't think much of it at first but after a while I felt like I was a criminal of some sort under interrogation. There were 4 men sitting across from me at the table asking me various questions, at times simultaneously. The original two managers were pleasant. One other upper level male was rather quiet, almost eerily quiet. The 4th gentlemen...I wasn't feeling his vibe at all. It was as though he wanted to prove somehow that I wasn't competent enough to even be sitting across from him. I was given an electrical meter and told to go plug it into an electrical socket to test the voltage. At first I thought it was a joke. Surely they don't ask this of every one that comes in...or do they? Next I was given more brain teaser questions on paper. They left the room and told me I had about 5 minutes to complete it. After that, more drilling of questions. I was already completely flustered with this whole process at this point and wished I could have darted for the nearest exit. I've never felt so insulted in my entire life.
