    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pioneer Corporation (San Jose, CA) in March 2010.


    Company got back on the initial inquiry within 2 days. (although the inquiry was directed to a specific person, so YMMV) Interview was planned, so that timing is convenient for both parties, even with the time difference. An in-person interview was offered in case I want to have a larger chance of impressing the company. Declined (out of country), and focused on a phone interview was focusing mostly on the discussion of particular technologies that might be applied during the internship. Interview included a few trick questions and a discussion of the corporate culture, which for the unit I interviewed with, is apparently something between a startup and a corporation. A very nice interviewer, who was very honest in feedbacking the process afterwards.
