Design Engineer Interview

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at SanDisk.

Interview Details

The whole process would last for 6-9 hrs. It depends on how you perform. But some time they want to see how you respond to actual design problems. In that way they could see the way you think. Get yourself familiar with all your projects and previous designs would be better.

Interview Questions
  • They don't ask general design questions. More like custom design encounters.   Answer Question
