    Application Details

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Western Digital in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview, then on to a face to face. I talked with 8 different people; other engineers, the hiring manager, managers from related groups and the VP. Each interview was focused more on how I thought through questions, and what I had done, to demonstrate I could solve problems. It was a hybrid of Behavioral interviewing and seeing what makes me tick.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
