    Validation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chandler, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chandler, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Met a recruiter at a campus career fair. He asked broad questions like "why do you want to be an engineer?" just to get to know my personality. He was very friendly and wanted me to succeed. A few days later, there was a phone interview. The questions weren't supposed to be difficult, but they focused more on embedded design. (My studies focused on analog circuits). I thought I did pretty poorly, and the interviewer said that I wasn't proceeding in the interview process, but about 3 weeks later they flew me down to Arizona for an on-site interview.

    The process was 5 one-on-one, hour long interviews. Each person asked about something different (one for behavioral, one for programming skills, one for digital logic, etc.). I had to use the whiteboard often to draw schematics or show my ideas and my thought process. I got along well with most of the interviewers but I think the actual hiring manager didn't like me. Recieved an email a few days later saying that I did not get the job.

    I pointed out my lack of digital experience several times, but I'm surprised I still made it that far through the interview process.

    Component Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Folsom, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Folsom, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had a telephone interview and the questions where pretty basic ... what is a State Machine? What is a Latch? How do you construct a TFF our of a DFF? ... I passed the telephone interview and I was asked to come onsite. Everything that I studied pretty much came up in the onsite interview ... however, question began to get harder beyond the scope of what I had either put on my resume, or in the actual application. What I noticed in the paperwork was that although the position that I was applying for was for a Recent College Graduate (RCG), the paperwork showed "experience" ... I had experience as a Apps Engineer, but not as a Component Design Engineer. Given that I was applying for something entirely different (Verilog, Timing related, Synthesis related) and just had graduated from a Masters program, I still was being considered an experience candidate. Make sure that you tell them that if you apply as a RCG, that it should be that way and not as an experienced candidate.

    Interview Questions
    • It was a CPU question at the gate level ... I have never seen this question in either of my Bachelors or Masters level classes. It was not a question about the CPU Architecture to be clear.   Answer Question
    • Please try to be as detailed as possible regarding the technical question, business case, etc.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Intel Corporation in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied under Veteran opportunity; No job description provided for Manufacturing Technician. Any EE could easily pass this interview. Portland is known for hiring desireables; apparently, and EE major, Veteran, who passed 4/4 questions with the technical portion missing from their folder isn't desireable.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Intel Corporation in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process is straight forward with not much to add. This is just a bunch of filler text I am using because I can't think of anything that I want to add. I am just trying to finish this online signup so I can actually look for a job.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chandler, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied on their website and a few days later I received an email for an interview. It started off with a presentation about the company by someone from HR. There are about 40 to 50 people in the room, but split up depending on the position they're interviewing for. After the presentation, I was picked up by a pair of employees (it was a manager and one of the engineers that work for them) for an interview. The interview was composed of both behavioral and technical questions and lasted for an hour. After the hour, the interviewers left the room and another pair of interviewers came in for another interview. After this, there was a lunch between the interviewees and some of the people doing the interviews before the day was finished.
