    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at SanDisk (Milpitas, CA).

    Interview

    2 phone interviews consisting of behavioral questions then was asked to come onsite. I had three interviews and a week later was asked to come back onsite for an interview with the VP. I was told I would hear within a week and it has been two weeks with radio silence on their end. The recruiters won't answer their phones or emails.
