I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Alpha & Omega Semiconductor (Sunnyvale, CA) in December 2012.
The Interview process was standard. I initially met with the hiring manager and the VP and I was called again for a detailed interview with all their team members. The questions that were asked were very good and I got a good feeling about the team. After the interview process, I was told that they were interested and they even went on to give me a verbal offer with the exact salary and compensation details.At the same time, I also had a similar opportunity from another company and so they asked me if I will accept their offer. I had accepted the offer and after that, things started going bad. They remained silent for a long time. When asked, they said the CEO has not signed the offer yet. And suddenly they said they wanted me to meet another VP. Even during this interview, I was never given a full appraisal of the situation. There was also no apology for the delay and everything was kept quiet. And then later they said, they are having a hiring freeze and things cannot move forward! My question is why give verbal offers in the first place when they are in a hiring freeze?? Why call me for a second round of interview? Why give me the hope that things will work out? This has by far been my worst interview experience and because of them, I have lost another opportunity that could have worked out!
