    good experience in this interview. But they did not offer enough money. I have good experience in semiconductors. sure to lend something better in the future. I am interested in a company which values my experience in this field. I can do many things in design, simulations, and manufacturing. I can help a lot.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Freescale Semiconductor (Austin, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online for the job posting. I was contacted by the hiring manager through e-mail and he set up a time for phone interview. Phone interview was less than 30 minutes long. He came back saying he would like to bring me for onsite interview. Onsite interview was from 9 AM - 2 PM including a 1-hour lunch break. Interview was cool. I appreciate the way interviewers handled each round. My hiring manager initially gave me an overview about the team and scope of the role for which I was being interviewed. I did not feel like the interview was particularly tough, but I enjoyed the rounds.
