Interview Question – Have you ever faced conflict with your team members while working on a project? And how did you got over it? Answer Question
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Applied Materials in March 2012.
Interview Details I know that the hiring process for full time employment is very detailed and usually a panel of managers and peers. As a contractor and a former employer, I did not have any interview with the company because they knew who I was and had my job history. Contractors are hired on via Adecco, whom I highly respect.
Interview Question – What are your weaknesses? Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Applied Materials in March 2013.
Interview Details First Round - Phone Interview. Standard questions regarding resume and experiences. Special interest in ability to work with large data sets as well as visibility to csuite and vendor partners.
Secound Round - In person group interview. The firm DID NOT provide for travel expenses. The interview time was changed on the prior day. The expectation was a series of individual interviews. Instead it was a group interview including adjoining resources Finance etc. At the end of the second round I was asked to prepare a presentation at an appropriate management level for future presentation via Skype.
Following delivery via email of the presentation I have had no response from the firm.
The presentation was never given via Skype etc.
Interview Question – Very difficult to provide answers which addressed all cross functional business groups.
Reconsider the need to provide a future presentation, rather than perhaps using a timed exercise to "complete" the process in an extended session. Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Applied Materials in February 2012.
Interview Details The hiring manager left a voice message and asked to schedule a 1 hour phone interview. When I called to confirmed, I agreed to make it a face to face on a day when he was in town. One week later, I had the interview. It lasted one hour and we talked in the employee common room. It was large, so there was a sense of privacy. I did not see the work environment or offices. The other employees were dressed business casual. This position was to fill in for an employee who had been promoted or transferred to another department.
