    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Zoran in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Hiring manager waffled a lot in setting up interview and was late for my appointment. I spent a while in the lobby. Interview was just with the hiring manager and consisted of a lot of questions regarding my background, Perl scripts, make files, C code. He asked a few technical questions, which were more like puzzles than technical questions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Zoran in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume online and was contacted by a recruiter who set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. That consisted of an explanation of the position and questions about my background and goals, but no technical questions. Then came two rounds of on-site interviews, each about 4 hours long. The first interviews were with the hiring manager and some of his team, and the second round was with people higher up in the company. Both rounds involved technical and non-technical questions.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Zoran in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    The entire process lasted a long time. 5 weeks from application to offer. Looked like they were not sure on what the exact role would be. Might be because the hiring manager and the department manager has different roles in mind.
