    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    interviewed at AMD in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    The resume was forwarded by an internal contact. So, the interview setup/scheduling was relatively quick over email.
    3 rounds of interview: two with the team members and one with the director.

    The interview with ~7 team members was mainly technical. Question on:
    Digital design principles: setup/hold times and ways to address setup/hold time issues, state machines, finding issues with digital circuits, other logic design questions
    C: handling different endianness, embedded C code optimization issues
    System Verilog questions
    Logical puzzles

    After the first two rounds the hiring manager indicated that the feedback was good and he would like me to come in to meet the director.

    It took about 2 weeks from that point to receive an offer

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was really difficult but some of the questions on System Verilog were very specialized /infrequntly used cases.   Answer Question

    Co-Op Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at AMD in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was for the position of Co-op engineer for the Spring semester. I had submitted my resume to University Relations long back and seeing a match for my academic projects with the job requirement, the Hiring Manager called me first and took phone interview. It was a perfect match for my projects and the work that I would have to do at AMD. So he was pretty much convinced and told me an other senior engineer would take me interview. There was time constraints so this happened 2 days later and the senior engineer asked mostly technical questions from C++, Verilog, Computer Architecture, Algorithms and also told me to explain the Academic projects in detail. The interview lasted an hour. I think they were impressed by me, So I got the offer by the next day.
