    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Lam Research in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a very thorough and challenging interview process. I first went through campus screening. Then, a few days later, I had a phone interview with an employee in the group I would be working in. A day or two after the phone interview, I was contacted by HR to schedule an onsite interview. The onsite interview was very long - I was interviewed by at least 9 different people including the hiring manager. After the interviews, I had to give an hour long technical presentation. The entire process probably took 2~3 weeks.

    Interview Details

    I had four rounds phone interviews in a row directly with senior analyst, manager and director. No HR interviewer get involved at all. No technical questions, basically talks about past intern experiences, campus activities, and habits. They are super nice and easy to talk with. Mostly informative questions.
