    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fairchild Semiconductor (South Portland, ME) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I didn't see much difficulty in the hiring process and it was all well planned and went through accordingly. The whole process ended in 7-10 days since they were looking for a quick guy to join. On the day of interview i was bit nervous but when I took the call, the interviewer made me to feel good and it went all good. Later two days i got the confirmation call.
