    Difficult Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sensata Technologies (Attleboro, MA) in February 2015.


    After submitting an online application, there was a 3 part interview process. First, an HR phone interview. Second, an engineer phone interview. And third, an HR & Engineer in person interview. It was one of the most in depth and thorough interviews that I've ever had.
