Interviewed at AMD

Interview Details – The interview was off-site and on-campus. There were two rounds with two hiring managers from two different locations, one west coast and one east coast. The interviews were pretty relaxed, and were predominantly technical after basic introductions. One was exclusively analog with a fairly basic written circuit problem, asking about I/O behavior. The other was more on the digital side but ended with a rod-related question.

Interview Question – The rod-related question asked about how different electrical properties of the rod would change with length or volume.   Answer Question

Austin, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at AMD in August 2009.

Interview Details – The interview process is allows the coops to talk to many different groups, both in an informal setting as well as follow-up technical interview with selected groups the next day.
Very good process and highly recommend. The informal setting allows co-ops and AMD engineers to mix and discuss what they do as well as try to land an interview for the next day.
The interviews the next day are approximate one 1-hour interview per group that is actually hiring.

Interview Question – Mostly technical questions related to computer architecture, vlsi, and digital design. nothing very unexpected but need to know the basics very well.   Answer Question
