    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Toshiba America Electronic Components (San Jose, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The people I interviewed with were nice to my face, but apparently they want young and cheaper engineers. I was scheduled for four in-house interviews, answered all their questions well, but they abruptly stopped, made up an excuse that the other interviewers were in meetings, and I had to leave. I was hoping that they would re-schedule the last two interviews but received a rejection letter two days later. Since then, another experienced engineer interviewed there and had the same experience I did. All in all, they want young talent that they can manipulate and they feel that they can't with older engineers. Definite ageism bias!!
