    Interview

    They will call you for phone interview and if got selected will call you for onsite interview. Onsite interview process is difficult. You have to spend whole day with 9 managers including one hour presentation. Nine managers will ask you questions about your previous and current project There will be some fellow in lam research and get ready to face this person. He is rude, nasty and will ask you several diginity related questions during the presentation and also in the separate interview. He will behave like he is the one and only Engineer/Scientist in this world and will behave and treat you in a rude way. Lam Research name is getting spoiled by this Fellow All other managers are perfect and will ask you the reasonable question.
