Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Irvine, CA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
Application Details

I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Western Digital in May 2012.

Interview Details

The interviewing process was very efficient and to the point. It consisted of an on-paper skills test, and 4 30-minute interview sessions with different engineers within the company. Interview questions mainly consisted of items listed on your resume. A lunch meeting takes place afterwards, and all of the employees seemed friendly and happy. Remain on guard, however; the lunch is an extension of the interview where they probe your personality traits.

If you do well on the written exam and can hold pleasant conversation with the engineers, you should receive an offer.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Western Digital in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    Received call from recruiter who asked a few basic questions. Told to expect call in a few days for next steps if I was going to be considered for an interview.
    About five days later got a call to schedule interview for the following week.
    I got sick before the interview. They scheduled me for the last available interview slot/day to give me more time to recover.
    Interview was mostly one-on-one. Four different interviewers, one each hour with two together in one hour.
    I thought I did well in the interview, but later realized I did not "sell" my benefits to the company in a proactive way.
    Received call about a week later telling me I did not get the position.
