    Senior Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at AMD.

    Interview Details

    Standard interview questions for programming job. One debugging question. One recursion question. One problem with using gates (come up with some logic). About 6 people. 1 person takes you for lunch at the cafeteria. Hiring process was overall ok. I got proper phone and/or email updates during the process. overall experience was ok. Interviewers were sort of "normal" in the sense that they weren't intimidating nor ultra friendly - just had a normal interviewer poker face.

    Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at AMD.

    Interview Details

    After a brief phone screen, you move on to the on-site interview. These interviews are intense - generally 5 or 6 one hour interviews with engineers and managers of all levels. Very technical. Make sure to study up. If you get stuck, the interviewer will help spur you on - they want to know how you reason through a problem if you don't already know the answer.

    Interview Questions
    • "Have you ever looked at how a real processor is designed?" (in response to a description of my graduate design project. Out of the 5 or 6 interviews, at most one will try to push your buttons, and maybe none. But be ready to handle yourself in case it happens.   Answer Question
