    Staff Verification Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Synapse Design in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    A couple times they would call me in the morning expecting me to come in that afternoon. One time, I did not find out about an interview in time. I should have realized that it would be an indication of how much I would be pushed around on the job.

    Interview Questions
    • At one point, I was asked if I would go to the customer in Texas. It sounded to me like the interviewer was talking about a single trip. I should have asked how much time I would spend in Texas. Later, when the offer came, they wanted me to spend one week out of every month in Texas.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I regret accepting the offer. They kept pushing for more Texas trips, and I talked them down to two weeks. After I accepted the offer, my supervisor would later press me for more time.

    Just had a phone interview. The man on the other end (won't mention the position, but apparently high up) was extremely rude when he did not get an answer the way he wanted. Would never want to work at such a place.
