    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Western Digital in March 2011.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by a Human Resources representative who asked questions regarding my personality. I'm guessing this was just to check and see if I was even worth their time.

    After this initial phone interview I went in for an interview which consisted of a 1:1 interview with 6 different people, at the end of these interviews I was given an hour long written test to test my technical knowledge.
