    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Watt Stopper (Carlsbad, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. The process took about a week. We scheduled a face-to-face interview at Wattstopper in Carlsbad, CA through a recruiter. It was a very smooth process. If you prepare thoroughly as have their needed skills, you should be alright.

    Interview Questions

    • I was given a written test on Integrated circuit package types and their features as this was meant to be a PCB designer kind of role. The position was supposed to keep records of all parts used in their projects and their specifications. I was also asked to describe in detail the projects I worked on in school and what software tools I have worked with (Specifically PCB design and drafting tools). They specifically wanted someone with strong Solidworks drafting skills to help their mechanical department. Overall it was an okay interview. The interviewers were very friendly from the get go. I just thought the requirements for the role was quite a lot for an entry level position.   Answer Question
