    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Leica Microsystems (Buffalo Grove, IL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I went through 2 phone screens (one with the agency that Leica used and one with HR), then one Skype interview and then an in person with 4 individuals. I was not stressed out in my final interview as my supervisor put me at ease right away and had me laughing.
