Program Manager Interview

Program Manager

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 months - interviewed at SanDisk.

Interview Details – Possibly most useless HR team in the world.
They are even more incompetent than the regular lot of HR people. Even though I submitted my resume through a trusted friend, it took ages for HR to actually start the hiring process. That's called a phone call. Ages. And then setting up the F2F interviews took another 2 months. And then another month for the 2nd and 3rd round. And then they never called me back. After interviewing all the way to the top. It's fine that I didn't get the job. Just please have the courtesy to call me and let me know. They never did that. Incredible.

Interview Question – Nothing. All normal expected questions any tough interviewer should ask.   Answer Question

Senior Design Engineer Interview

Senior Design Engineer
Milpitas, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at SanDisk in September 2013.

Interview Details – Consists of phone interview + Onsite Interview. Met with 4 team members....from Director of the group to the senior Engineer then concluded with discussion with Senior Staff recruiter.
Really Nice people.....Had a positive feeling after the interview but unfortunately no offer. Lesson learned is never to give much significance to interview experience until you have offer in hand....

Interview Question – Mostly stuff on my resume.....and some questions testing problem solving skills all circuit related. (ANALOG and DIGITAL)...quite detailed   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Program Manager Interview

Program Manager

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at SanDisk in October 2013.

Interview Details – I submitted my resume at the Career Fair on campus. 5 days later their HR called asking me if I am available for an on campus interview two weeks later. I gave an interview on-campus and the process was very well organized. It appears that the recruiters do an initial screening and then show the resume to hiring managers.
