    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Emulex (Costa Mesa, CA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume, HR called me. The initial call from HR was 20 minutes. The HR person asked me about my work history, salary, and expectations for a new job. After the initial HR call, I was scheduled for a phone interview with the hiring manager. That call lasted about 1 hour. He stuck to mostly non-technical questions focused on my work history, experience, and how I would fit in. After the phone interview with the hiring manager, HR called me back about a day later and scheduled an on site interview for a week later. The on site interview consisted of me interviewing with other departmental managers (that I would not report directly to) as well as the hiring manager. There was also one technical interview and an interview with the CIO. I was on site for about 3 or 4 hours. After the interview concluded, I heard back from HR within 2 days. Within a week, I had a verbal offer and a few days after that, a written offer.

    Negotiation

    All of the discussions about salary took place with HR. I was interviewing at a couple of different companies and told them that I was expecting another offer. The HR team offered me a good salary. I have heard that signing bonuses are regularly used too.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Emulex (Costa Mesa, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a mix of peers, hiring manager, and development managers. The Hiring Manager did all the talking and didn't ask too many questions. The peer interviews seemed to have been scripted. Interviews by development managers were the most interactive and beneficial. It is through these interviews that i was able to make a positive impression and get the job offer.
