Senior Test Development Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Bangalore

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 months - interviewed at SanDisk in September 2013.

Interview Details Had 3 rounds of telephonic rounds followed by another 2 rounds F2F. This is by far the worst recruitment process i have ever seen. I have put all my efforts in clearing the rounds. After all rounds I was told they will release an offer for me. I kept following up with HR who said "the offer will be released soon..". He kept on saying that for more than a month. I got frustrated and asked directly to provide clear status. At this point HR revealed that my skillset didnt match with the requirement. How gross !! Within a second from "releasing the offer" to "Skill-set didn't match with the requirement". Unprofessional way of recruitment.

My sugesstion is not to attend the interview at all

Interview Question – Coming to the interview questions..they are related to scripting, testing technologies, NAND memory related questions..   Answer Question
