    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Silicon Graphics International (Indianapolis, IN) in May 2015.

    Interview

    3 rounds : 1st round : Basic HR phone interview - All regular questions followed by a confirmation for an onsite interview 2nd round : With mid level management and Engineers - Typical HR questions , Panel Interviews , Work and Resume related questions 3rd round : With President and COO - COO focussed more on technology and resume related questions while President focussed on higher level skill related questions and considerations about candidacy HR communicated very effectively to begin with , but as I progressed along the stages HR interaction became less and less. As I qualified for the final round I had certain questions for their final decision and considerations in my candidacy , which I never got a reply for . A lot of companies do that , but as I presumed the HR to be really supportive I expected a reply . Little disappointed with that .
