Engineer Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Western Digital.

Interview

Mostly explained job description. The interviewer went through all the expectations and job descriptions. He did most of the talking and only asked 1 or 2 technical questions at the end. Didn't get to go onto the next round, not sure why because I didn't answer any questions.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Western Digital (Grand Forks, ND) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Short and sweet. I was contacted over the phone and an official offer came through the e-mail. None of the questions were very technical and most of the questions focused on affirming the presented resume.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Western Digital (Irvine, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Lengthy and targeted towards academic achievers, but not necessarily good workers, nor people with common everyday logic. Questions involved all aspects of EE, not just the position at hand.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Western Digital (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was with numerous individuals over the course of most of one day. Each interview took 45 minutes to an hour. The focus of each individual interview correlated to the interviewer’s area of technical competency. Technical questions mainly concerned the product and appeared to be related to recurring issues or area of challenges.

    Negotiation

    Was not able to negotiate.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Western Digital (Irvine, CA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    The interviewing process was very efficient and to the point. It consisted of an on-paper skills test, and 4 30-minute interview sessions with different engineers within the company. Interview questions mainly consisted of items listed on your resume. A lunch meeting takes place afterwards, and all of the employees seemed friendly and happy. Remain on guard, however; the lunch is an extension of the interview where they probe your personality traits.

    If you do well on the written exam and can hold pleasant conversation with the engineers, you should receive an offer.
