    Test Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milpitas, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SanDisk (Milpitas, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    1. technical phone interview
    half an hour.
    All sorts of technical questions ranging from, tell the difference between C and Java, how to basic RF questions. If you cannot pass this, there are serious problems about your studies in your school. Should not need to prepare yourself other than read the job requirements.

    At this stage, they only ask basic academic questions

    I answered correctly most of them

    2. on-site technical interview
    whole afternoon
    five staff of the group,interviewing your one by one.They will fly you in and reimburse your expenses. However, the rules of reimbursement are not so clear. They do not have good guidance like Nvidia.

    questions range from CMOS device physics, floating gate physics to software algorithm such as sorting, walking through lines of code in C/C++

    Got results after one month. I think I did okay for a new graduate posting and answered roughly 70% correctly. But they did not give me offer. Sigh, I really think it was a great match.

    I don' think they found a better candidate because they changed the posting from entry level(new grad) Test Development Engineer to senior Test Development Engineer. I wonder why myself.

    It was pretty straight forward. Asked me a few basic systems and string manipulation questions. It was just one round and after that they sent me the offer letter. They also made me talk to the manager after the interview to discus my goals.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SanDisk (Milpitas, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    1 interview in my Grad School + 5 on-site interviews.
    The interviews were not very technical, but I had to know perfectly how to describe the projects I did, what algorithm I used. I said almost the same thing again and again, because the 5 interviews were not very different.

    • They asked me to tell them more about my projects, and went in depth into some of them   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at SanDisk (Milpitas, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through employee referral. Started with phone screen with hiring manager, followed by on-site interview. Appreciated the fact that SanDisk covered all costs for me to fly in from another city. Seven 1:1 interviews back-to-back, 30 minutes each. Interviewers ranged from managers to the VP of the division. Mostly asked about my experiences and why I am interested. A month later, they scheduled me for two more 1:1 interviews over the phone. Another month after that, I received an email from HR saying that they went with another candidate.
