I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at SYNNEX (Fremont, CA) in December 2014.
Three panel interview. The person that they were hiring to replace, supervisor and department chair was the panel. Asked random questions about my life, experience and what I want in the future. Interviews came off as a little awkward.
- Why do you want this job? Answer Question
- No Offer
Implement a function which calculates the smaller angle between the hands of a 12-hour analog wall clock. A prototype in C might look like this:
double clock_angle(int hour, int minute);
At 3:00 you would call clock_angle(3, 0) and it would return 90.0.
At 6:00 you would call clock_angle(6, 0) and it would return 180.0.
At noon or midnight you would call clock_angle(12, 0) and it would return 0.0.
At 3:15 you would call clock_angle(3, 15) and it would return 7.5.
For simplicity you can assume that the minute hand ticks over only at exact minute intervals (i.e. it will never be partway between minutes). The hour hand, however, moves fluidly so at 12:30 it is exactly halfway between the 12 and 1 values printed on the clock face.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at SYNNEX (Greenville, SC).
I med a recruiter, Adrian, at the career fair on campus. She was very boring an unexciting. Had an oncampus interview with her. Easy resume questions. Went to the office for a second round interview. Very easy. No hard questions. Didn't get the job but they emailed me and said I did a great job interviewing?

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at SYNNEX in September 2013.
I submitted my resume online and had screening with HR, thereafter in person interview with hiring manager. Overall everything went well (I was quite impressed with the hiring manager) and I was promised to bring in for next round of interview. After a weeks follow-up, I get an email indicating they decided to go with another candidate. Surprisingly, same job posting were posted online again and again. Not really sure how this really works.

I applied online – interviewed at SYNNEX in May 2013.
on site interview with hiring manager.. no difficult questions. all basic questions: introduce yourself and your work experience. the manager was not willing to talk more about the position. He said this is a on-going opening. there seems to be no such opening. Feel like he wanted to gather field information. there seems to be no real opening.

Face to face interview with the director of business development
Yes. I'm applying for supply chain analyst but had an interview the director of business development. He asked questions about my current jobs a lot. Like what's the culture there, what do you sell, what's the annual volume, what's the org structure. When I asked him about the position. He only said, " the job description is very easy. Just like what you saw on the website." He didn't even want to answer wetter this is a newly created position or a replacement. I felt he was trying to get information of my current job not looking for a now hire.

- Declined OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at SYNNEX (Fremont, CA) in April 2013.
Initially, the hiring manager reached out to me by phone and was very rude and cut me off several times while trying to answer his questions. I was very surprised when he offered to bring me in for an onsite interview, but I went anyway. He proceeded to tell me how unqualified I was but offered me a job with a compensation package at half the going rate for this region, which was about 30% less than the somewhat low range he mentioned on the phone screen.
- Actually, the interviewer did most of the talking and really did not ask me any questions other than some very basic ones. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
The offer was extremely low and out of line with the scope of responsibility for this position.
