Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation.

Interview Details Phone interview (30 minutes). Very light questions. Had a phone call the next day for a site interview. Questions emphasized personality. The only technical questions involved my previous work/research. Everyone was very polite and professional, from talent acquisition to senior engineers. The process moved fast. Two days after submitting my application, I received a phone call. The next day I had a "technical screen". I was called the next day to schedule an on-site interview.

Interview Question – Providing alternative solutions to my research (i.e. propose experiments with elemental analysis).   Answer Question

Senior Process Engineer Interview

Senior Process Engineer
Santa Clara, CA (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in April 2013.

Interview Details My advising professor received an email from a former student saying he was looking for recent/soon-to-be graduates in Mechanical Engineering. I sent him my resume and the next day had an hour phone interview, consisting of the details of my engineering experiences and what I wanted to do in my career. The next week I had an informal interview in Santa Clara, mostly consisting of more questions about my engineering experiences, and a thorough tour of the facilities related to the position and a lot of detail about the specifics of the job (the hiring manager was very concerned both that I was a good fit for the job and that the job was a good fit for me). The next week I came in for a formal interview, consisting of a 30 minute presentation of my engineering experiences to the group and a series of one-on-one interviews with each member of the group. The questions weren’t too difficult, with the exception of a few technical questions (by the younger members) and one interviewer who had some sort of sheet of standard (mostly behavioral) interview questions for a process engineer.

Interview Question – Most unexpected: what are the 2 golden rules of an op amp (I’m a mechanical engineer)?   View Answers (2)

Reason for Declining – The job sounded amazing, but I got another offer for another (also amazing) job which had a much better location with regard to family and affordable housing.
