Program Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)

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 (Neutral Experience)

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....

Very Easy Interview
Program Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
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.
