Systems Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA (US)
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Western Digital (Irvine, CA (US)).

Interview

It went relatively smoothly. The process was very typical. Like any other interview I suppose.
There is really nothing notable about this interview. I just remember there was one guy who was really a jerk during the interview...but he was let go a long time ago.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Western Digital (Irvine, CA (US)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Preliminary technical screening phone interview with one of the engineer. Then follow up with an all day on site interview. Since this was a Systems Engineer position, the questions spans both hardware and software topics. Seven people interviewed me in an all day interview. These are experts in their fields so they did stump me on a few questions. Luckily I have been a System Engineer for a while and was exposed to all of those topics. Nevertheless they still hired me. I think it is because I was able to show more diverse systems hardware & software understanding than other candidates.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions spans both hardware and software topics. Each interviewer asked about a topic that they are strong in: C, C++, Python, ASIC designs, system architecture and timing analysis. Most engineers would be strong in either software or hardware design. Luckily I have done both and I have been a System Engineer for a while and was exposed to all of those topics.   1 Answer
