    I worked at Intematix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some very bright people in R&D. Company events every month or so. My boss was cool until he left. His replacement, not so much.

    Cons

    The company was not growing in revenue and actually going the opposite direction. Lots of lay-offs. It was quite top-heavy, but eventually the lay-offs took care of that.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to build up revenue and change with the market. Learn from mishaps.

    Led Phosphor R&D Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Intematix (Fremont, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by a onsite interview. First person had not read my resume at all previous to the interview and read it while we sat in silence for 10 minutes. It was entirely clear that this was a interview for a research role in which you would grind out your day to day existence. They did not want anyone to "spend too much time on failure". They were mainly interested if you had experience in the EXACT down to materials and processing they wanted you to be doing. If you have experience doing the LED phosphors you may be in luck. Also do not be surprised to see random brightly colored powder vials just littering everyone's cubicles and offices. It's very scary from a safety point of view.

    Interview Questions

    • They basically looked over my resume during the interview and quizzed me on it.   1 Answer
