Anonymous Interview Candidate
San Jose, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Magma Design in February 2008.

Interview Details – I applied after a referral. I communicated mostly with the manager of a small group who was very invested and shepherded the process. The interview was pleasant and mostly meeting the team and a question-and-answer about the position. The canned technical questions (e.g. explain this algorithm) were fortunately skipped. The interviewers were pleasant but didn't make a very compelling case for their company over their competitors.

Interview Question – What are you looking for in this position?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Company's marketplace position was shaky (and has gotten worse). Compensation was lower than other options.
