Senior ASIC Design Verification Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at AMD in May 2014.
Interview Details – I was contacted by email that asked me to schedule a phone interview. I also received a call form the recruiter regarding interview scheduling. I was told that the interview would be mainly a general one and nothing technical would be asked. Some of the questions asked in the interview-
- Why do you think you are most suitable for this job?
- How are your skills relevant to this position?
The questions were easy and mostly of HR type. Never heard back from the company regarding their decision.

IT Project Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at AMD in April 2014.
Interview Details – Phone interview with recruiter went great - or so I thought. We spoke for 45 minutes and he said I would hear something in 24-48 hours about next steps. The recruiter asked me questions that were indicative of being interested in moving forward. After a week of not hearing anything, I contacted him. He said he'd follow up and again, never heard back. I would've appreciated a "thanks but no thanks" instead of letting me wonder what happened!
Interview Question – Nothing difficult, just caught off guard that I was asked the following questions in a phone screen: How many square feet is your house? How many bedrooms, bathrooms, etc. What's your current salary? What salary are you expecting? How much is your bonus? How many people would be moving with you? How many other companies are you currently interviewing with? View Answer
