Mechanical Engineer Interview

Application Details

I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Western Digital in July 2011.

Interview Details

All day interview, lots of fundamental mechanical engineering questions on beam stress, heat transfer, and fluids.

A few straightforward puzzle-like thinking questions which weren't too bad and could be worked through relatively easily. They just wanted to see the thought process.

Also showed me a bunch of mechanical components and asked questions about how they are made, what they do etc.

Took me out to lunch too which was really nice.
