    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at HGST.

    Interview Details

    Very professional interview. About 7 individual interviews with the team + a 1hr presentation.The interviewers were very friendly. The questions were mostly technical with few that were behavioral like why should we hire you?, What are your strengths/weaknesses?, etc.

    The presentation is a very helpful thing. It saves the candidate some time when doing the individual interviews.
    Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at HGST in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Overall positive interviewing experience. Nothing too technical, I spent most of the time describing my current job responsibilities and how this career opportunity fits in with my skills and passion. The recruiter was extremely professional and was a pleasure to work with. Some of the topics that came up during the interview were in regards to the recent acquisition announcement, with Western Digital in the process of buying out Hitachi GST. The common response was, due to Hitachi's large market share of Enterprise class storage solutions, they were not worried about lay-offs in their team. Of course, there is no certainty or guarantee so it may be wise as a potential hire to discuss severance pay in the total compensation package (after receiving a written offer).
