    Director Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marvell Technology (Sunnyvale, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Was verbally offered the job, given one day to decide, I called back and verbally accepted. Then 2 days later the manager called and said they were giving the job to another candidate. I've never seen that done to a candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked how often I'd have my staff meetings, 1:1's, etc. Seemed like a pretty tactical question from a SVP, given the job was to come in and turn around an org.   1 Answer

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Marvell Technology (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screen with the recruiter, phone screen with the hiring manager (and another manager on the team), on-site interview. During the on-site interview they walked me around the campus and I interviewed with both managers and peers. The whole process was very drawn out and in between the steps there was little follow up. After two months of not hearing anything after the interview process the recruiter finally followed up to say that they were interested in extending an offer. However, because their hiring process was so disorganized and I had all but completely forgotten about them by that time, I declined to move forward.
