    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Harmonic.

    Interview Details

    Directly onsite interview.
    There are total 6 rounds, the former five people each person 30 minutes. The question was so easy even not to do programming. All about are testing problems.

    However, the final person is a HR, who was mean person. She wanted to listen what she recognized the right answer, otherwise, she would ask you the same questions again and again until making you embarrased and nervous. She did not want to smile at all.

    Application Details

    interviewed at Harmonic in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview took two days on-site. 7 ~ 8 people. Questions are fair and easy. Most questions are about the c/C++ programming and operation systems.Interviewers are very polite and friendly; managers are very nice. Only one interviewer is scary that he asked some math questions that are hard to find a suitable answers; and he didn't give solutions at the end of interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The HR representative asked some tricky questions like "What is your weakness?"; "What is the most challenge project you've done before?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate. I was not satisfied with the base salary but I didn't know how to negotiate that. I felt regretful even after I joined the company.
