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.

Senior Device Engineer Interview

Senior Device Engineer
Milpitas, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at SanDisk.

Interview Details – The first phase was a phone screen consisting of basic device physics and MOS fundamentals. The questions were very fair: pn junction related, operation of a MOSFET, scaling of a MOSFET.

HR later contacted me for an on-site interview, but over a six-week process of back and forth e-mails and phone calls, they simply stopped responding. The req remains open on the website, so I suspect they dropped the ball. Very unprofessional. I found another position elsewhere.

Interview Question – The most challenging question was related to threshold voltage shift of a scaled MOSFET. This question makes sense since NAND is based on Vt shifting, but it is not in my background and I struggled with it.   Answer Question
