    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at LSI in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    It started with an on campus interview with the hiring manager. This was followed a few weeks later by an interview with other team members. Overall the questions were wide in range and tended to be on the technical side. I really thought it was a good company with a great work environment. However, they stressed that I must have the ability to work about 50 hours per week.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at LSI in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Was interviewed by a variety of people from different disciplines. Several of the interviewers asked vague questions where I had to give multiple answers until I give the exact answer they wanted. One of the interviewers said I was close to the correct answer, but it was something close to what I said. He was wrong. I didn't tell him that because he seemed full of himself.

    One area's work was very impressive.
