    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at KLA-Tencor (Malta, NY (US)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me via linkedin who directed me to apply online for a relevant position. Within a week I was invited for an onsite interview at Malta, NY. There was no reimbursement as I was just two hours away. The interview questions were not at all technical. The atmosphere amongst the team members looked quite good but the interview questions were totally HR related.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at KLA-Tencor in September 2012.

    Interview

    3 rounds of telephonic interviewing with one dept. and 2 rounds with another. Was shortlisted in both and was called on-site. The interviews and written tests lasted a whole day. It was very tiresome, as I expected.
    Lost out in the round before the final round. Written tests were based on Image Processing.
    1-1 Interviews were based on your answers in the written tests.
