    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ciena (San Jose, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Starting with HR phone interview, the HR recruiter asked all the right questions regarding my experiences with examples. Specifically, questions on examples of my past achievements, challenges in management role, and what I want to accomplish in my next job. Great interview and interaction throughout.
