    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Second Sight (Valencia, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    As others have said the questions asked were of the brain teaser variety. At the same time they were fair questions and I was given a chance to show knowledge even if I did not have every answer. Because of the nature of the position most of the questions were circuits related.
