    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sun Microsystems (New York, NY) in September 2008.

    Interview

    Only behavioral questions were asked of me. The position was mostly to be a complementary asset to the team, so in depth engineering savvy was unnecessary. How the interviewer was very courteous and professional, wanting mostly to know about my background and what research I had done on the company.
