    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Western Digital.

    Interview

    Very professional interview. About 7 individual interviews with the team + a 1hr presentation.The interviewers were very friendly. The questions were mostly technical with few that were behavioral like why should we hire you?, What are your strengths/weaknesses?, etc.

    The presentation is a very helpful thing. It saves the candidate some time when doing the individual interviews.
    Overall, it was a pleasant experience.
