    Murata University Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tucson, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Murata Manufacturing (Tucson, AZ) in June 2012.

    Interview

    A telephone interview with the Marcoms Manager in Mansfield, MA. The Manager, John, was familiar with my experience there and my qualifications, as I had just recently retired from Murata. The position was going to be open in a matter of weeks because the person that had been doing it was leaving for personal reasons. John provided a brief outline of the duties and responsibilities in this position. I accepted the position contingent only on two conditions: first, that I would work no more than 3 days a week (24 hours); secondly, that travel would be minimal. With just that much said, John quickly agreed and I had a new job.

    Interview Questions

    • Would I be satisfied accepting a reduced rate of pay compared with what I had been making as a Field Applications Engineer?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I asked for a slightly higher wage than was offered, but John advised that the position had been approved only at the lower rate.
