    Production Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beverly, MA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Microchip Technology (Beverly, MA (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I applied for the position on LinkedIn where the description listed it as a "Full-Time" Position.
    A representative called me the next day asking for availability to do an on site interview. I asked if it would be possible to start with a phone interview to learn more about the position as my current job has limited days off and the location was far from home.
    They agreed, and set up a 30 min interview for the Friday of that week at 12:00pm.

    In preparing for the interview, I looked up the job description on their website and noticed it was listed as "Temporary." I emailed the rep to clarify what type of position it would be. They replied letting me know they were not sure and that I could ask during my interview with the Hiring Manager.

    At 11:45am, the day of my interview, the rep emailed me requesting to postpone the meeting to the same time the following Monday, as the Hiring Manager needed to take care of unexpected issues. I agreed and then the rep re-updated the time to 12:30pm.

    At this point I was a bit annoyed with all the changes and still had not received clarification on the position employment type. I replied asking the rep to touch base with the Hiring Manager, explaining the conflicting listings, and expressing that I was only interested in Full Time positions.

    The rep said they forwarded my inquiry to the HM and HR dept.
    I never received any response from Rep / HM / or HR and on Monday at 12:30, no one from MicroChip Tech called me.

    I made no effort to reach out to them again.

    Corporate Applications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chandler, AZ (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Microchip Technology (Chandler, AZ (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Process started with a one hour phone screening with the hiring manager.
    I would say it was medium difficulty, with a mix of behavioral and technical questions.

    I was then brought onsite for an interview.
    The interview lasted for about 6 hours with a rotating panel of different interviewers.
    It also included a lunch, where I was interviewed during the lunch.

    After my interview, I heard no response for about 2 weeks, and assumed there was not going to be an offer.

    My thoughts following the interview:

    In general, I don't understand why any engineer would work here.
    This was the most difficult interview I've had, and it seemed completely unnecessary.
    The interviewers' questions, for the most part, repeated themselves over and over.
    I feel that an understanding of my skill set could have been achieved with a 2 or 3 hour interview.
    Furthermore, I was interviewed over lunch by two engineers, which was unnecessary and felt unnatural.

    Perhaps if you are interviewing for a job at a top-tier company this would make more sense,
    but from what I gathered during the interview, this was a pretty mediocre company.
    Their products are well known in embedded software circles, but the company itself seemed to not take care of its employees.
    Typically the headquarters office attempts to show off the company, but at Microchip it was a pretty bland setting. It seemed that the office hasn't been updated since the 90's.
    The benefits package they presented seemed average.
    From what I gather, the salary is far below average for the Phoenix area.

    The interviewers were proud to say how well the company was doing financially,
    and it makes sense why - they are very frugal. I suppose this is a good thing but maybe they are too stingy.

    To be fair, the job itself seemed interesting, but the cons outweighed the pros here.

    After all this effort interviewing here, I still haven't received a yes or no from Microchip.
    This seemed a bit unprofessional or disorganized on their part.
    I'm not too concerned with receiving something from them, I don't think I would accept if I was given the opportunity.

    Overall, it was strange to see how many high quality engineers chose to work here.
    Everyone I talked to was very friendly and helpful, while still very technically skilled.
    However, I couldn't understand what they were getting out of working at Microchip.
    The benefits are average, the office is old, and the pay is horrible.
    If you go down the road a few blocks you can work at a number of other company and do basically the same work for far more pay and benefits.
