I worked at Hitachi full-time (More than a year)
standing in one spot literally whole shift
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi (San Jose, CA).
Phone screen with two folks in other parts of the country. Was flown to Silicon Valley. I knew things were going to end poorly when the interviewers were more than 40 minutes late--and the receptionist couldn't reach them...and they wouldn't answer their office or cell phones. BTW, I was the first interview of the day. After the interview it took two months to get Hitachi to reimburse me for the travel expenses that they'd promise to cover.
