I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Western Digital in December 2012.
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.
Interview Question – Classic heat transfer question on adding cream to coffee immediately or after a few minutes Answer Question
