    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Calix (Richardson, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Initially it was a phone screen. Mostly behavior questions were asked and It went good, received call for the second round.

    Second round of interview was horrible. Interviewer was rude, he was speaking slowly so could not hear him properly and was unclear what he wanted to ask. Took long pauses between the questions, call gets disconnected. Very bad experience.
