Firmware Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at HGST in January 2011.
Interview Details – Got contacted by recruiter via linkedin. HR called first followed by Hiring Manager. They asked about my current job and my work/skills background. I worked for another storage company so the skill set needed for HGST job was exactly my work profile in my current job.
They scheduled in-person interview and flew me in their San Jose site. Interview process was good, got interviewed by members of team I was supposed to join. Got interviewed by 6 team members and HR. Hiring manager took me for lunch in their cafeteria. He was friendly. The only aspect I did not like is that I was interviews by less experienced people than me. 2 interviewers out of 6 had less than 2 yrs of experience. I suppose their team had only 6 members and they had no other option.
Everything went smooth except I did not get offered $$$ which I had in mind. I would have accepted the offer if they offered me 10K more.
Interview Question – They kept asking me why am I leaving my current company. View Answer
Reason for Declining – Their offered salary was less than I was expecting.
