Engineer Interview

Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Freescale Semiconductor in October 2013.

Interview Details – They had come for an info session in October 2013 where they held a presentation about the company and were very laid back with Q&As. The following day, at the career fair, I handed them my resume and talked to them about the various positions. They called me for an interview for the next day which went reasonably well. The interview process was informal, in general. I received a positive email saying they would contact for an on-site interview but I guess they had filled the positions.
