    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Link A Media Devices (Santa Clara, CA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    I was called to arrange a time for a phone interview. The actual interview sounded like I was on a speakerphone and there were others in the room besides the person asking the questions. The interviewer never told me his role in the company, what the company did, what exactly they were looking for, what projects I've worked on, just started asking interview questions. It took about an hour.
