    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at ARM Holdings.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with HR, onsite interview first with two managers and then with HR.

    The HR representative was pleasant and professional, but not particularly engaging. Of the two managers, one was engaged and asked questions, the other didn't ask much. The questions were relatively softball and not very difficult.
