    Senior Manager of Demand Planning Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Livermore, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Applied Micro Circuits (Livermore, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very positive. Hiring manager and HR Director very friendly and enthusiastic. The whole process for me took about 2 weeks. Started with phone screens, then a day in the office with interviews throughout the day (some 1-on-1 and some panel). All easy-going people. They took me to lunch. I had done my research on the company so I had a very good idea of the job and requirements

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I negotiated with the HR Director and hiring VP. They were both open to negotiating all aspects of the compensation package
