    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SanDisk.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and heard back from a recruiter within a few weeks. I then scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager. We had a short conversation and I spoke to her about my relevant experience and she explained the position a bit more. I was then invited for an in-person interview and met with 4 people. They asked me questions about my relevant experience, as well as some situational questions, such as: When was a time you faced a problem in the workplace? How did you deal with it? Why do you want to work for SanDisk? Why this role?

    Test Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at SanDisk in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    1. technical phone interview
    half an hour.
    All sorts of technical questions ranging from, tell the difference between C and Java, how to basic RF questions. If you cannot pass this, there are serious problems about your studies in your school. Should not need to prepare yourself other than read the job requirements.

    At this stage, they only ask basic academic questions

    I answered correctly most of them

    2. on-site technical interview
    whole afternoon
    five staff of the group,interviewing your one by one.They will fly you in and reimburse your expenses. However, the rules of reimbursement are not so clear. They do not have good guidance like Nvidia.

    questions range from CMOS device physics, floating gate physics to software algorithm such as sorting, walking through lines of code in C/C++

    Got results after one month. I think I did okay for a new graduate posting and answered roughly 70% correctly. But they did not give me offer. Sigh, I really think it was a great match.

    I don' think they found a better candidate because they changed the posting from entry level(new grad) Test Development Engineer to senior Test Development Engineer. I wonder why myself.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at SanDisk.

    Interview Details

    Referral from friend. Total process took 2 months. 2 weeks for the phone interview. Questions are standard, short channel effects and breakdown mechanisms. 2 weeks later for full day interview. The first interviewer didn't show up. He showed up at the end, and pushed the everything one hour later. Extremely unprofessional. Took 1 more month before before results were given.
