    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SanDisk.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and heard back from a recruiter within a few weeks. I then scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager. We had a short conversation and I spoke to her about my relevant experience and she explained the position a bit more. I was then invited for an in-person interview and met with 4 people. They asked me questions about my relevant experience, as well as some situational questions, such as: When was a time you faced a problem in the workplace? How did you deal with it? Why do you want to work for SanDisk? Why this role?

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SanDisk in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    1 interview in my Grad School + 5 on-site interviews.
    The interviews were not very technical, but I had to know perfectly how to describe the projects I did, what algorithm I used. I said almost the same thing again and again, because the 5 interviews were not very different.

    Field Marketing Interview

    Interview Details

    The Interview was very relaxed and wasn't at all stressful. My first interview the recruiter looked at my resume and said she really didn't need to ask any more questions and was happy to move me on to the next round. The second interview took a little bit more convincing and more analytic questions, but overall just being yourself and being excited and not nervous were the top things that helped my interview. They were also both first and second round Skype interviews.

    Senior Network Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SanDisk in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    There were about 5 rounds of interviews. Recruiters are just jerks. They don't treat you with any respect at all. I drove 50 miles to Milpitas to know that my interview was rescheduled. What a waste of time.
    All they see is f you are local candidate then don't need to spend a penny on you as you waste your time and gas and go. They might not even be interested in filling that position at all.
    I was interviewed in September 2013 and got a call for the same position again in April 2014.

    Interview Questions
    • Interview (if done) is a piece of cake. I don't think their existing staff is really competent as there is more competition by KLA tenor and Cisco for resources.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Got furious with the behavior of the recruiters and also I heard bad things in the company reviews where people say its dominated by folks from a particular country.

    Product Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milpitas, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milpitas, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SanDisk.

    Interview Details

    Gave my resume to a recruiter at school. Got an email a few weeks later to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview was with recruiter, very basic questions about resume and projects I have worked on. Asked about a specific project - what challenges I had to overcome, how I would improve it, etc. They invited me to an onsite interview right after my phone interview.

    At the onsite interview, I talked to 4 people. Some engineers, managers, and the person who would be my supervisor if I received the position. Nothing too technical (in my opinion). Interviewers asked questions from the projects I've been working on, interests, and a few situational questions. Also had a recruiter to do typical HR stuff. I got to talk to the supervisor looking for the employee, and she was really nice so I really wanted the job.

    A few weeks later, I received a phone call with my offer.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the engineers asked me questions about CS, which was something I was not prepared for. She assured me that it doesn't matter if I didn't know that much, she just wanted to do it for fun (??) and wanted to see how much experience I had.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SanDisk in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round is on the phone, then typically you go in for an on-site and talk to several people. Pretty straightforward, nothing unexpected. No unexpected questions either, typical strength/weaknesses/behavioral/why should I hire you types. Some of them were really friendly and we pretty much had a normal conversation the whole time.

    Interview Questions
    • - Tell me something about yourself that isn't on your resume.
      - Tell me bout yourself.
      - What do you know about SanDisk?
