    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Materia (Pasadena, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I emailed my resume to the HR email. About a week or so later I received and email back and was scheduled for an interview the next week. The interview consisted of a 3 person panel with usually one HR representative and two people from the department that you are applying to. General interview questions nothing too difficult. No background check or drug test.
