    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Unigen (Fremont, CA).

    Interview

    Interviewed by the wife of the owner who was the Exec. VP. Simple and easy questions. Job-related experience and skills. The wife gave me an offer on the spot and I negotiated for few dollars more. Wait a few days and the HR phoned me that they accepted my negotiated salary.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Unigen (Fremont, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    You will have a preliminary interview with HR, then a phone interview with your immediate supervisor, then a face to face with a group of about four peers. Most of the questions were pretty basic. There were no trick questions like if you sit in a boat on a lake holding a rock and throw the rock overboard, does the water go up or down.

    • It was a design challenge type question...if you were designing x, what would be your approach.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Unigen does not provide severance pay and they don't really negotiate on salary or benefits. About the only thing I negotiated was my start date

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Unigen (Fremont, CA) in May 2015.

    First is the phone screening from the Staffing Program Specialist.
    Afterwards, there was a face to face interview with the Product Manager, SVP of Operations, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, and System Qualification Test Engineering Manager. The face to face interview took about 4 hours.
    Lastly, there was a final interview with the FAE hiring manager.

    Interview Questions

    • It's common where Unigen and other SSD vendors will use the same controller model (e.g. Marvell 88SS9187) for their SSD product (e.g. 2.5" SATA III SSD).
      Also, Unigen and other SSD vendors will release new FW (same controller model) at different intervals.
      There are instances where other SSD vendors will release a new FW version before Unigen.

      Scenario:
      A customer is aware of the new FW version (from a different vendor but same SSD controller model) and asks if they can apply the new FW on the Unigen SSD.
      In addition, the customer has read the release notes and there is a FW fix, which the customer needs.

      How would reply to the customer? Is this recommended?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Unigen (Fremont, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Exhaustive, nearly 3 hour interview answering the same questions over and over again. Some of the questions were hypothetical and convoluted. I was left to wait for 20 minutes before my interview began. I sat in a hot room and waited for each interviewer to come in. There were 3, and all of them were late. It was a one on one interview for about an hour at a time with these people, all of which had essentially the same questions. This is after two phone interviews. I did not get the job and frankly, I think that's a good thing.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you manage up? Why was your most difficult boss difficult? What could they have changed? What is your weakness? What would you do on your first day here and no one was around to direct you? How do you deal with people of different ethnicities and backgrounds? and more and more and more.   1 Answer

    I went in for multiple interviews. First there was the phone screening. Pretty straight forward, then met with HR, management, then upper management. Upper management then gave the offer and followed up with paperwork that needed to be signed.

    Interview

    I was hired by my friends mom, it was easy. When I went in, a lady came to talk to me and 5 of my other friends. We were hired as soon as we stepped into the building, it was a case of whether or not we wanted the job, which we obviously did.

    I could not negotiate, but the hours were flexible. I was allowed to go to work whenever I wanted and leave whenever, but there was a timecard and I was paid minimum wage.
