    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at HGST in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was emailed and asked to come in for an interview. Was promised no technical questions, but was asked some easy-ish questions on OS and data structures. I had another offer, and they were able to expedite getting me an offer very fast, which was very nice as I really wanted to work there but could not turn down a sure thing.

    Interview Questions

      2. What possible data structures could I use to handle translation from logical address to physical address?
