    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Western Digital (San Jose, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Highly unorganized. Flew me out to San Jose, but didnt plan enough time for the interview before I had to be back at the airport. They had behavioral questions only and I interviewed with four different people.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR about job description, went through resume, and was asked behavioral questions. Then had another phone interview with engineer and was asked about OOP, sorting algorithms, and more behavioral questions. On-site interview would have been next, but I was disappointed to find out that the job didn't involve me doing any programming.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Western Digital.

    Interview

    Hour long written test. Fairly easy if you know programming basics. 4 separate 30 minute one on one interviews. Interview had a mixture of behavioral and technical question. Hated having to introduce myself 4 different times and give the same sales pitch as to why I would their company. Overall not too bad. I expected worse.
