    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8+ monthsinterviewed at LSI.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job through Employee referral. I got a phone call directly from the HR asking for 3 time preferences. I got an email confirmation of the on-site interview. Manager and other team members were seated in a room. Everyone asked me about my past working experience, why I am looking to join LSI...pretty standard questions..nothing technical. The manager explained to me the duties of the job I was being interviewed for. He showed me around the office and took us all for lunch at the cafeteria and again had 1 hour interview with the Manager after the lunch. Again, the interview was not technical...it was to get more information about my educational and professional background and whether I will be a goof fit fr the job.

    Software Quality Assurance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at LSI in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I Applied online and got a phone call to setup a phone interview a couple weeks later. The phone interview lasted for an hour. Mostly behavioral questions (non-technical). I was told I passed the first interview round with flying colors and their were several other interviews to go with different people. I was told to expect a phone call to set up the other interviews. It was all positive up until this point. I have never heard back from this company to this day. I sent one follow-up email a week for three or four weeks to the guy I initially interviewed with and never got a response. The first interview went so well that I am left baffled by this company's very unprofessional actions. At least have the professionalism to send me some kind of correspondence letting me know something...anything! To just drop off the face of the earth and never respond the way they did was just wrong in my opinion.
