    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at NVIDIA in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Four phone screens + 1 day onsite.

    Very slow moving thru the selection process. Took about ~3months, and no job.

    They ask for 3 references and a background check.
    My references were not even contacted. So that means they did not want to hire me anyway. Why did they not send me a rejection email sooner instead of keeping me in suspense. I'd rather know sooner than later if I am not a good fit for a team.
