    I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Environment is great, campus is great and the food it good. Coffee galore from plain to espresso and single serving personal options. Gym onsite.

    Cons

    On you to keep interesting. Supplier to a volatile market. Not for people who need supervision to make sure they do their tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Electrical/Controls Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KLA-Tencor (San Jose, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was really good ; I was a local candidate so they called me for on-site. Usually people in panel would be team you are going to work with;( don't get surprised if guy taking you interview is way younger that you). Interview was average asking about current/past work and project.

    I was rejected saying I dint have enough experience which contraindicated words from hiring manager whom I met on-site; she told me they are looking for entry level candidate(I have 5+yr of experience in control systems). Thanks to my LinkedIn skills I found out guy who was hired is fresh out of the school graduate .

    Plus management needs to understand people who are looking to switch firms withing 3 years are not always job hoppers its possible that they are at wrong place and looking to find right one
