- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
contacted by recruiter. set up multiple phone screens and you interview on site with those who are interested. While the phone interview questions are relevant to the position the onsite questions were meaningless. There were 0 technical questions, only puzzles. The whole process is extremely biased and the is definitely hiring favoritism as qualified candidates have not been hired while unqualified are hired (given they share a "similar" trait as the hiring manager).
- VLSI questions, inverter, muxes, puzzles Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Santa Clara, CA) in December 2011.
Strange experience: 1. Applied a researcher position through my university career center. 2. One recruiter emailed me that I was approved by VP as a qualified candidate (I had no idea what it meant) and distributed my resume to hiring managers who are interested. 3. One hiring manager contacted me for a phone interview regarding a hardware engineer position. 4. Phone interview was short and easy. Then I was invited for an onsite interview. 5. In the meanwhile, the recruiter initiated a background check for me (I had no idea why he initiated one so early). 6. On-site interview was easy. Several one-on-one interviews with hiring manager, and other engineers in his team. They also gave me a lab and campus tour. 7. After around a month, I was invited for a second on-site interview with higher management and other senior engineers. 8. The hiring manager promised me to make a decision after one week. But after one month, he still didn't have an answer for me. 8. The process took a long time. During the wait, I followed up with the hiring manager several times and he kept expressing his interests in me, but just can't give me an offer due to some internal issues that I don't really understand. I was left hanging in the wind for a long time and they still haven't made the decision yet. I don't wanna wait anymore and would treat it as a rejection and move on. 9. I still don't receive the refund of my travel expense as of yet.
