    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SanDisk (Milpitas, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I got a call directly from the hiring manager, saying he got my resume through a recruiter. I have been asked to schedule a phone interview later. After the phone interview, the interviewer had informed me they wanted to take me onsite and a HR would call to schedule it. I never heard back from them in spite of repeated emails every two weeks, very unprofessional behavior.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at SanDisk (Sunnyvale, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    They were pretty unprofessional. The interviewer guaranteed a second interview after she said that she really liked me, but three weeks later after not setting a next interview time, they told me that I did not fit the job description. After they got taken over, they seem to be all over the place and they have bad communication.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at SanDisk (Milpitas, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Very disappointing, I was approached initially by some recruitment officer , however they did not do phone screening. The recruiting person did communicate very well the and sent me the plan and list of the people to meet, However, things were very vague during the interview process, and no body could very well explain the position " may be one person who did not belong to the team did some explanation, Anyhow, the hiring manager chose no to t continue the interview "before lunch", since they decided not give an offer, which I would not have had accepted since I would not feel comfortable working for a group with such poor communication.

    Interview Questions

    • Very vague, focused on specific things they did not my experience, technical questions more like an exam " RCG type: not suited for some one with 20 years exprience   1 Answer

    Senior Firmware Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SanDisk (San Jose, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen with a gentleman whose name I never did correctly get. He asked good C/debugging questions, but he was very combative and when I asked if I could ask a question, I was told no and he continued to ask questions. I knew I only did so-so, but I never heard back from SanDisk. It must be a sweat shop. I'm glad I landed somewhere else.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions were technical. If I had just graduated from college, I would have been better prepared. So I asked if I could talk about some of my collaborative and successful experiences but the interviewer didn't want to be bothered with that.   1 Answer
