    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at HGST in January 2017.

    Interview

    Six hours interview. Explaining my work experience.

    Very professional interview. About 5 individual interviews with different team members.
    The interviewers were very friendly. The questions were mostly technical with few that were behavioral. Some discussion about real life scenario.
