Interview

30 minute phone interview, and then a hackerrank. I failed at the hackerrank step but had I passed it would have been a technical interview. The hackerrank was pretty challenging.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Western Digital (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied during Career Fair and did fairly well speaking to the recruiter. He/She informed me that there would be a Super day where many interviews would occur and would receive a programming challenge. Due to logistic issues my entry that day was lost and I was not contacted again, despite completing the programming challenge. I reapplied online and found my local position was filled and thus would have to relocate.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Western Digital (Irvine, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Applied through my college career fair. Got called in to take a test and then again for the in person interview. The interviews started with breakfast with a group of other candidates. My group consisted of mostly UCI students so the conversation seemed geared towards them. I quickly felt left out and sometimes picked on for being from a different college. By the time for the one on ones, I could see that the culture did not fit with me and only continued for the interview practice.
