    Senior Tech Transfer Engineer - Alcon 10587259 Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Alcon (Irvine, CA (US)) in July 2020.

    Interview

    Scheduled interview with individual named Travis Ougzin for Transfer Engineer position and it turns out he is interviewing for design engineer to design fixture and questions he asked had nothing to do with actual job advertised.
    He was so in rush in interviewing that I feel like he has no interest talking/hiring people with accent, although I has the exact experience they were looking for.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you design fixtures? without providing any details of what kind fixtures   1 Answer

    Very friendly! Applied online and attended a recruiting event on campus in which I met a recruiter and spoke to her about my interest in the company. I had a phone interview within one month and was told I am moving on to a video interview that same day.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alcon in January 2020.

    Phone interview with talent recruiter. The woman I spoke with was very informative and made sure all my questions were answered. She first let me know what all was involved with the internship and then told me about which sector of the company she thought I would fit in best.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX (US)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Alcon (Fort Worth, TX (US)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    This was a truly odd candidate experience. I was contacted by recruiter six months after I applied, so I had forgotten about my application. After a number of phone interviews I traveled to Ft Worth for an all day final interview. It seemed well organized (ie travel booking, etc) with some big hiccups (like they didn’t tell me I’d need to pay for hotel and get reimbursed). After this, I didn’t hear a peep from them for almost two weeks, which is quite unprofessional.

Onsite interviews with different groups for about 4 hours. Received an offer after initial negotiations. Overall positive experience and recruiter is very proactive in providing updates throughout the process.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Alcon in October 2019.

    Interview

    Basic STAR Method questions. They called me at first as an initial screening and then sent an email to apply for job listings
    Good conversation if you're up for it. The initial screening was normal and was not in depth. She asked how I heard of Alcon, why I wanted to be in with them, and who I talked to at the Career Fair
