    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Freescale Semiconductor in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed in Austin, the headquarter. 5 interviewers from different groups, most of them asked general questions. And some questions from my resume. Not that hard. And before that, I prepared a lot of questions for embedded system. But it seems not useful.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Freescale Semiconductor in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    This might be a little bit special case as Freescale was trying to setup a local sw team from the group of motorola who get just layedoff. There was a close relationship between these two companies and you know most of the persons. Therefore the interview is kind of general and many are puzzle or high level questions.
