    Senior Member of Technical Staff Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at AMD in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process at AMD was implemented quite well. It was handled professionally by the human resource recruiter. First I was contacted by the hiring manager.
    Then the HR recruiter setup my first on-site interview with the manager and a few critical engineers.

    My first on-site interview was quite technical since I was interviewed with all engineers.
    There was a lot of detailed discussion of my previous designs. I was asked to draw
    detail circuits from my previous designs on the black board and discussed these circuits
    in details.

    In conclusion, the interview process at AMD was similar to interviews at other companies.

    Senior Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sunnyvale, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed 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.

    Interview Questions

    Senior Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at AMD in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    2 phone screens, 7 people interviewed me in person; lasted from 7:45AM to 2PM. Got offer in 1-2 weeks. It was very pleasant ; and I liked Austin, TX a lot. Team is highly technical and in general will not take BSing well. Some questions on brainteasers but mostly technical hardware and software related.

    Interview Questions
    • About trace driven vs execution driven modeling. Trace driven modeling is faster; and but is less realistic due to not exploring bad paths during branch prediction. Execution driven modeling usually requires the existence of a functional model - in addition to a timing model to do neat things like sampling etc.   View Answer

    Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed 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
