Engineer Interview

Engineer

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Physical Optics.

Interview Details Received a call from the TAS. It was good timing since I just started job hunting. The position working on technology I haven't done intrigued my curiosity. Overall interview took about 2 hours. Met with the TAS, the VP, Director, and COO. They were all impressive and presented POC beyond my expectations.

Interview Question – I thought I was going to get quizzed on SBIR. Luckily the TAS shared that part of the business before I met with the COO. I expected to get technically questioned by the Director. Its good to be prepared.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Nothing. I was happy with the offer.

Senior Management Position Interview

Senior Management Position

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Physical Optics.

Interview Details Screening and interview set up was smooth. The HR guy was respectful and timely.

Interview Question – 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

Reason 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.

General Manager Interview

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Physical Optics.

Interview Details 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 Question – 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
