    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Sun Microsystems (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    the process basically consists of three interviews ,a phone call to set up a skype meeting then the skype interview couple of days after with the company recruiter asking basic situations based questions then an interview at the HQ with the direct manger about past experiences and your cv then the last stage is practical and one on one technical interview where you are asked to debug running algorithms in a very tight timing and while interviewing with the engineer responsible for the interview and alot of distractions
