    LAUNCH Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I interviewed in November 2019 for the Irvine location.

      I applied online and got an email from about 2 weeks later to schedule a phone interview with a different recruiter. This recruiter did not call me at the scheduled time so I had to reschedule. The second time around, I was actually able to have the phone interview. Interviewer seemed very disinterested and sounded like they were reading from a script.

    The next step was a online assessment that the interviewer said they would email me a link to by the end of the next day. That entire week goes by and I do not hear anything. I try to get in contact with the person who originally emailed me as well as the person who interviewed me but hear nothing back. Another week goes by for a total of two weeks of no contact. At this point, I assume the worst and move on. I go on LinkedIn to search for new jobs and see the person who interviewed me started a new role at a different company.

    Very frustrating experience for me and very unprofessional behavior from Western Digital. If they were going to let me slip through the cracks because of someone's incompetence, they could have sent me a rejection email at the very least.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Western Digital in August 2020.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a university recruiter on Piazza, asking me to apply for the Launch program because they were impressed by my Piazza profile (yada yada, typical recruiting stuff). Took about 2-3 weeks after applying before they responded asking me to set up at time to speak with a recruiter for 30 minutes.

    Had a pretty good conversation with the recruiter, they just ask basic stuff like "Why did you get into computer science?" and then answer questions you might have. They also mentioned other positions (that weren't even posted) and asked if I'd be interested in them. Ends with being told it should take 3-4 weeks for the teams to look at my resume and decide to go into the next round of interviews.

    Interview

    The Interview process was great. It was a three step process, first was with an outside recruiter who asked preliminary sales questions. Move to step two which was a virtual interview with an SDR lead (potentially the leader of your team) and the third step was a virtual interview with the manager of Inside Sales.
