    Interview

    Applied to the job on their website, got an email asking me to go schedule for an interview two days later, received the oral and email offer two weeks after the interview.
    The team is mostly Chinese, and they prefer Chinese candidate as well.
    Three rounds of technical interviews targeted in RDBMS and OOP, rather easy if you have hands-on working experiences.
    Company's primary skillsets are C# and .net. Team members are nice but the atmosphere is dull.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro) (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Uploaded my resume through their website, and got a call from them a few days later.
    Had an interview with the supervisor and the vice president, and received a verbal offer a week later. The official offer came about a week and a half after that, and that was it.

    Interview Questions

    • Regular interview without any heavy emphasis on technical questions, questions were mainly about logical thinking abilities and passed experience.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Supervisor did ask me my target salary, and later offered something that was a bit lower than that. He claimed it's the standard offer the company makes for this type of position. I believe him, it seemed reasonable compared to the other salaries this company was giving out.
