    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HGST (Boston, MA (US)) in March-2015.

    Interview

    The interview was about 15 min. The questions were about the projects in the resume. The recruiter mainly asked about the skills I had. Have not heard from it later so I thought I did not get this intern position.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HGST (San Jose, CA (US)) in March-2016.

    Interview

    Did an online coding test on Hackerrank. It was difficult. Afterwards, had a non technical interview where I talked about my experience and what I wanted from an internship. Was expecting a more difficult process but managers were more or less just looking for a culture fit.
