    Algorithm Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KLA (Milpitas, CA (US)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    Applied through LinkedIn and the recruiter forwarded up with a few questions such as start date etc. Had an online interview with the hiring manager who briefly described the job position, went through my resume and asked me to solve a coding question relating to convolutions.

    Made it through to the "onsite" interviews (it was online however, citing covid reasons). First round was a 20 minute technical presentation (could be related to a project or thesis - they prefer thesis) followed by three, 45-minute interviews with the members of the team. The first interviewer forgot that he had to conduct my interview that day, so it was a relatively short interview. The other two interviews were pure technical combined with a few coding questions.

    It's been a little over a month and they still haven't gotten back to me yet, despite repeated emails.

    Interview Questions

    • q1.) Coding question: Implement 1D convolution
      q2.) Coding Question: Import an image and grid-ify the enitre image using matplotlib library   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KLA in January 2020.

    Interview

    This company is sexist! The technical questions are interesting and in depth but the personality and experience varies a lot based on who you are interviewing with. I had a friendly interaction with one team member on site, but all the other ones seem reserved and rude as if they don’t know how to talk to women (I am female). One of them asked me a question about my family, which is very unprofessional. Overall during my visit I found the company very gender imbalanced and they were very ambiguous and even look thrown-off when I asked them questions regarding how they addressed diversity. Which is probably why I didn’t get the offer, but even if I did I wouldn’t want to work with them. Please address your diversity and inclusion policies!
