    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at SanDisk.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by an in-house recruiter through Linked-In and I replied that I was interested. The first interview was with an HR representative on the phone; originally set for 30 mins but it went over. It was clearly to get a better understanding of my background and to follow-up on clarification needed, I'm guessing, that the hiring manager wanted. He was very cordial and informative. I would say, made me excited about the opportunity. He passed me to the hiring manager for a phone interview and that was more detailed on my experience relevant to the position. It was set for 30 mins, but went for 50 mins. This manager was also very cordial and professional. Both interviews were a positive experience.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked a question like the type that you hear that Google asks; it was a problem solving question asking you to determine the number of XYZ, something rather esoteric   View Answer

    Senior Network Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milpitas, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milpitas, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SanDisk in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    There were about 5 rounds of interviews. Recruiters are just jerks. They don't treat you with any respect at all. I drove 50 miles to Milpitas to know that my interview was rescheduled. What a waste of time.
    All they see is f you are local candidate then don't need to spend a penny on you as you waste your time and gas and go. They might not even be interested in filling that position at all.
    I was interviewed in September 2013 and got a call for the same position again in April 2014.

    Interview Questions
    • Interview (if done) is a piece of cake. I don't think their existing staff is really competent as there is more competition by KLA tenor and Cisco for resources.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Got furious with the behavior of the recruiters and also I heard bad things in the company reviews where people say its dominated by folks from a particular country.

    Product Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milpitas, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milpitas, CA
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Gave my resume to a recruiter at school. Got an email a few weeks later to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview was with recruiter, very basic questions about resume and projects I have worked on. Asked about a specific project - what challenges I had to overcome, how I would improve it, etc. They invited me to an onsite interview right after my phone interview.

    At the onsite interview, I talked to 4 people. Some engineers, managers, and the person who would be my supervisor if I received the position. Nothing too technical (in my opinion). Interviewers asked questions from the projects I've been working on, interests, and a few situational questions. Also had a recruiter to do typical HR stuff. I got to talk to the supervisor looking for the employee, and she was really nice so I really wanted the job.

    A few weeks later, I received a phone call with my offer.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the engineers asked me questions about CS, which was something I was not prepared for. She assured me that it doesn't matter if I didn't know that much, she just wanted to do it for fun (??) and wanted to see how much experience I had.   Answer Question
