    I met the recruiter on career fair. They gave me an on campus interview on the next day, and we had a 30 min talk. Mostly it is a behavior one, just a little technical.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at LSI in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen interview, then interview with about 4 members of the marketing team. It helps if you know someone there. They are very unorganized and unfocused, not knowing exactly what they need in their team.

    Interview Questions
    • Do you know how to create PPT slides? I thought that was odd - of course I do. Well, you better know how because there is a TON of reporting - all done through PPT.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at LSI in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Two rounds of phone screenings, followed by on-site interviews. The on-site interview process consisted of a an intro by the HR, followed by technical interviews by engineers and managers. You are expected to be an expert C programmer (you should know difference between static and non-static objects, stack and heap allocation, things like "volatile"), and an expert in firmware and device drivers. Storage experience (SCSI, RAID) helps.
