    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Unigen (Fremont, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First is the phone screening from the Staffing Program Specialist. Afterwards, there was a face to face interview with the Product Manager, SVP of Operations, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, and System Qualification Test Engineering Manager. The face to face interview took about 4 hours. Lastly, there was a final interview with the FAE hiring manager.

    Interview Questions

    • It's common where Unigen and other SSD vendors will use the same controller model (e.g. Marvell 88SS9187) for their SSD product (e.g. 2.5" SATA III SSD). Also, Unigen and other SSD vendors will release new FW (same controller model) at different intervals. There are instances where other SSD vendors will release a new FW version before Unigen. Scenario: A customer is aware of the new FW version (from a different vendor but same SSD controller model) and asks if they can apply the new FW on the Unigen SSD. In addition, the customer has read the release notes and there is a FW fix, which the customer needs. How would reply to the customer? Is this recommended?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Unigen (Fremont, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    You will have a preliminary interview with HR, then a phone interview with your immediate supervisor, then a face to face with a group of about four peers. Most of the questions were pretty basic. There were no trick questions like if you sit in a boat on a lake holding a rock and throw the rock overboard, does the water go up or down.

    Unigen does not provide severance pay and they don't really negotiate on salary or benefits. About the only thing I negotiated was my start date

    Interview

    I was hired by my friends mom, it was easy. When I went in, a lady came to talk to me and 5 of my other friends. We were hired as soon as we stepped into the building, it was a case of whether or not we wanted the job, which we obviously did.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I could not negotiate, but the hours were flexible. I was allowed to go to work whenever I wanted and leave whenever, but there was a timecard and I was paid minimum wage.
