    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Imagination Technologies.

    Interview

    An online test in C++ programming followed by an on-site interview with the team leader. The test was generic questions about the language to see if you made the effort to do some pre-study reading (a lot of the specifics are rarely used in my opinion so testing how much effort you are prepared to put into the job). The interview was quite informal asking quite difficult problem solving questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Imagination Technologies.

    Interview

    4 rounds includng HR round. 3 rounds are technical, mainly focussing on OS concepts and algorithms. The interviewers expect detailed algorithms with efficient implementation. The interview mainly intends to understand your way of thinking and core C concepts. I would recommend preparing C using books like K&R. The concepts like basic data structures also need preparing.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Imagination Technologies (Kings Langley, England (UK)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I completed an online C test, which was very difficult, then was invited to a f2f interview. It was pretty relaxed and consisted of competency and technical questions, we also went through my CV and they asked questions regarding my CV. I then received another phone interview from HR, I will do this interview soon and I hope it will go well

    Interview

    They contacted me through e-mail to arrange a short interview on the phone. Typical questions regarding my interest in the position and a short review of my related experience. A couple of technical questions, pretty basic though as it was for an entry level position. Most of the questions were related to wireless communications, WLAN and Bluetooth standards.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing, most of the questions were about hardware design and wireless communication technologies.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Imagination Technologies (Wellington (New Zealand)).

    Interview

    A company standard online C test, even for an android developer position.
    Followed by a at least three hours long interview, including an 1 on N interview, technical tests (coding, database).
    Lastly, an additional interview with the HR in the UK. I didn't have this when I interviewed, so don't know what they ask.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Salary is somewhat negotiable. Company standard benefit really good, no need to negotiate.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Imagination Technologies (Kings Langley, England (UK)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online via their website. After around two weeks they emailed me and arranged a phone interview which comprised of questions such as why did you choose Imagination, what have you studied at university, a little bit about MIPS architecture and questions regarding pipelining, interrupts and a linked-lists in C.

    A few days after they arranged a Face-to-Face interview with me at their HQ. This comprised of more difficult questions, particularly those at the low-level, things like designing counters in logic, creating a NAND only XOR etc. Just make sure you can do a little Boolean algebra.

    They're not looking for people who can answer every question perfectly, they're looking for those who think about it and make an attempt regardless rather than those who just say "I can't do it" or "I don't know how".

    Interview Questions

    • Given some binary sequence implement it in logic and then minify it using Boolean algebra/ Karnaugh maps etc   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Salary was specified in the interview. It's fixed for internships.
