WD has a great culture with teamwork being a common goal here. At WD, you are encouraged to think outside the box. And, WD is making me smarter — as an employee, you will learn a lot. Entrepreneurship is a big draw — you get to take calculated risks. I’m proud to represent WD — when people realize where I work, their faces light up! They tell me, “I use a My Cloud” and they think it’s really cool.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Western Digital.


    Interview with supervisor (job briefing) - took about 30 minutes

    Interview with 2 potential co-workers (technical interview) - took about 30 minutes

    Interview with Manager (personal interview) - 1 hour

    All the interviews were really casual and chill. I was only nervous because it was my first interview after graduating college. Even though I felt like I didn't do great on the interviews, they were still willing to give me an opportunity. Most new hires will start off as temporary-to-perm conditions, unless they really want you.
