    Interview with potential boss / team members for 30 minutes each. There was a quick test on technical skills. Everyone were friendly. Feels more like chatting than interviewing. Overall: great experience

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Western Digital.

    Interview

    It took about six months from the application to getting an interview. The interview was 4 "technical" interviews which just was vague questions about what I have done. Nothing much technical. After a month and a half of waiting and no response to any email or phone call, a generic form without my name was emailed to me explaining they didn't hire me. I was annoyed they ignored my emails- I wanted to know the status of the hiring process so I could decide whether to proceed with another job opportunity or not.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Western Digital (Milpitas, CA (US)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Incredibly unorganized. I applied through my school's website and was immediately asked to answer some behavioral questions. The woman I first spoke with had just learned about the internship program and couldn't answer a single question I had about the actual position itself. Further, there were 5 different, tangentially related, positions and the call was for a different one than had I applied to. I had to fill out 3-4 different sets of forms, with the same exact information (work experience, personal info, etc...) before the onsite, which was incredibly annoying. The onsite was very long - 6 back to back interviews, most of them asking the same questions again and again. The questions were all very basic, behavioral questions and were not stimulating in any way. The recruiter said she'd get back to me in 1 week. No response. I emailed her after 2 weeks. No response. I emailed her twice more regarding the reimbursement for transportation we had previously agreed on. No response. Thanks WD for agreeing to pay my $100+ uber rides, only to completely ignore my requests.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Western Digital (Milpitas, CA (US)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I got a referral from an employee. Immediately got contacted by HR and was then given a Hacker Rank test. Following the test, I received a phone call interview during the end of the process. I felt like I was not prepared for this position. Hacker Rank test was nerve-wracking.

    Interview

    HR, online test, then face to face technical interview. Everyone was very friendly and informative. The first screening interview had a few easy technical questions. Then there was the online test which was harder. Then there was a face to face skype like interview where more technical questions were asked.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Western Digital (Irvine, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Phone interview was fairly short, asked about work/project experience, what you expect to get out of an internship. Basic questions, nothing too demanding in the phone interview.
    Following the phone interview, had an onsite interview. Onsite interview consisted of basically resume questions. Make sure you are able to answer any questions in detail (theories, steps, layout/schematics) on anything you have listed on resume. Simple technical stuff were asked, just need to know your basics.
