    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HGST (Boston, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was about 15 min. The questions were about the projects in the resume. The recruiter mainly asked about the skills I had. Have not heard from it later so I thought I did not get this intern position.
