Field Marketing Intern Interview

Field Marketing Intern

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at SanDisk in February 2014.

Interview Details – Straightforward process. Three interviews total, one that was in-person. All questions asked were very typical interview questions, no tricks. I especially appreciated that the recruiter would tell me at the end of the interview that I was moving onto the next round so I wasn't waiting to find out. After my final round, I received an offer the very next day.

Senior Device Engineer Interview

Senior Device Engineer

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at SanDisk in January 2014.

Interview Details – I got an email from hiring manager directly that he wants to interview me. After a week interview was fixed. He asked me basic device physics questions with few tricky ones. He was good enough to explain the problems so that I can answer.

Hiring manager told me that HR will get back to me in 7-10 days which never happened. I found that unprofessional.

Device Engineer Interview

Device Engineer
Milpitas, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at SanDisk in January 2014.

Interview Details – I applied for this position at the SanDisk website
Took one week from a phone call interview to on-site interview.
Met 6 people including HR manager for 5 hours.
Each interview took 45 mins except lunch hour with an interviewer.

Interview Question – They asked me my Ph.D works and previous professional work experience and knowledge.
Mostly easy, but sharp questions. The hiring manager told me he already knew about me through the phone call interview as well as resume, so it's my tun to ask him about everything. One interviewer grilled me with tricky questions about weird transistor structures. The manager and a technical VP were very friendly and nice guys.
