I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Sun Microsystems in October 2008.
Interview Details – Fairly informal interviewing process. Referred internally by an employee via the HR organization to the hiring manager. Two initial phone interviews, followed by an in person interview and then a series of brief interviews by my managers Director, other individuals who I am now working directly with, and one other Director in the organization.
Interview Question – Why do you want to return to the company? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Some. I was a rehire and was able to negotiate backup to my departure salary.
Really consider if you want to work at Sun and why. The company is under a lot of stress, but there are opportunities to learn global enterprise skills that few other companies can offer.
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sun Microsystems in January 2008.
Interview Details – Due to Sun's practice of setting up global teams who can work from anywhere, the initial contacts were all via phone. I was first contacted by the Hiring Manager, and then another member of her team via phone interviews. This was followed by a group interview on location.
Negotiation Details – I attempted to negotiate everything I could, but was given an offer (which was fair and generous) and only one of my negotiation points made it into the final hiring plan (flexibility). I believe this was due in part to the urgency in which they needed to place the position.
