    Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. 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 Questions

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. 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

    Anonymous Employee  in  Milpitas, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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 Questions
    • 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

    Reasons for Declining

    The package was good. I was keen in negotiating the base salary. Upon further negotiation, SanDisk agreed to compensate my request through increasing the joining bonus. However, they were not willing to work on the base salary part. Hence declined the offer.
