I have been working at Coherent full-time
Great company! Number one laser industry around the world. Lots of work everyday, but there are always much fun for doing those work. The company working environment makes workers feel alive and being important person.
A bit less benefits compared to the size of the company.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Coherent (Bloomfield, CT) in June 2016.
I was called in for an "informal" interview with the hiring manager, for a meet and greet with the company and position. I then received a call back for a formal interview, which included a team lunch and technical presentation. I rate this interview as one of the more difficult interviews I've been on, since they have you at the facility all day in both formal and informal settings.
