    Staff Verification Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Synapse Design (Santa Clara, CA) in November 2013.


    A couple times they would call me in the morning expecting me to come in that afternoon. One time, I did not find out about an interview in time. I should have realized that it would be an indication of how much I would be pushed around on the job.

    Interview Questions

    • At one point, I was asked if I would go to the customer in Texas. It sounded to me like the interviewer was talking about a single trip. I should have asked how much time I would spend in Texas. Later, when the offer came, they wanted me to spend one week out of every month in Texas.   Answer Question


    I regret accepting the offer. They kept pushing for more Texas trips, and I talked them down to two weeks. After I accepted the offer, my supervisor would later press me for more time.
