    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Altera (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Very typical interview process, phone interview followed by in-person interview. I met with four interviewers onsite. Two of them are very junior and the other two are not pleasant at all. They seem to be very busy, not prepared, and rush through everything.
    It could be worse, I have been to worse interview.
