    Interview

    Easy. Interview was a day long. Started late. It seems like a very average company that lives off SBIRs. They do a lot of other stuff apparently, and are trying to transition into a commercial entity.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview with most of the senior executives went very well. With the exception of the the COO who was a complete mad-man.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Irrelevant questions by the COO. The man was an absolute tyrant. Disrespectful to the TA person who took me to his office for breaking his concentration and even worse towards me. A complete mahogany row class A jackass.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Physical Optics Corporation.

    Interview

    Poorly organized interview process, with redundant questions and bad time management. The CTO is an irrational, egotistical tyrant with no skill at professional interview methods

    Interview Questions

    • Technical questions from the CTO about optical light modulator technology from my company that revealed that he did not understand its basic physics at all. When that became obvious, he became enraged and incoherent.   Answer Question
