    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at SanDisk in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was good. They asked basic questions about my experience and few behavioral questions.
    They are very unprofessional, they asked me whether I am engaged (seeing the ring! How does it matter to them) and did the same person referred me to the job. They even mentioned that since the job has a lot of cross functional duties I have to be liked by a lot of people. How does it matter, I haven't even joined and how can anyone predict whether I will be like-able or not They asked mea lot of questions which makes no sense to the job.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SanDisk.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and heard back from a recruiter within a few weeks. I then scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager. We had a short conversation and I spoke to her about my relevant experience and she explained the position a bit more. I was then invited for an in-person interview and met with 4 people. They asked me questions about my relevant experience, as well as some situational questions, such as: When was a time you faced a problem in the workplace? How did you deal with it? Why do you want to work for SanDisk? Why this role?

    Test Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at SanDisk in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    1. technical phone interview
    half an hour.
    All sorts of technical questions ranging from, tell the difference between C and Java, how to basic RF questions. If you cannot pass this, there are serious problems about your studies in your school. Should not need to prepare yourself other than read the job requirements.

    At this stage, they only ask basic academic questions

    I answered correctly most of them

    2. on-site technical interview
    whole afternoon
    five staff of the group,interviewing your one by one.They will fly you in and reimburse your expenses. However, the rules of reimbursement are not so clear. They do not have good guidance like Nvidia.

    questions range from CMOS device physics, floating gate physics to software algorithm such as sorting, walking through lines of code in C/C++

    Got results after one month. I think I did okay for a new graduate posting and answered roughly 70% correctly. But they did not give me offer. Sigh, I really think it was a great match.

    I don' think they found a better candidate because they changed the posting from entry level(new grad) Test Development Engineer to senior Test Development Engineer. I wonder why myself.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SanDisk in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    1 interview in my Grad School + 5 on-site interviews.
    The interviews were not very technical, but I had to know perfectly how to describe the projects I did, what algorithm I used. I said almost the same thing again and again, because the 5 interviews were not very different.
