    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sun Microsystems in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    Only behavioral questions were asked of me. The position was mostly to be a complementary asset to the team, so in depth engineering savvy was unnecessary. How the interviewer was very courteous and professional, wanting mostly to know about my background and what research I had done on the company.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sun Microsystems in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interview questions are generally designed to assess applicant attributes that are specifically relevant to the job for which the person is applying. The job-relevant applicant attributes that the questions purportedly assess are thought to be necessary for one to successfully perform on the job. The job-relevant constructs that have been assessed in the interview can be classified into three categories: general traits, experiential factors, and core job elements.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Sun Microsystems in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    I send me resume online and got two calls from two different departments to ask if I had interests in their position, I selected one and had a first contact with a tech lead in Sun Microsystems. I went to the office for the on-site interview after one week, and meet 3 engineers and 1 manager in a day.

    It seems that I am not the best suitable candidate for the position I applied, but my resume was forwarded to another team which hiring manager locates in USA.

    Two weeks later, I got two phone call again, one from technical group, the other from hiring manager.

    I got the offer, and the package is better than the original position I applied for.
