CAD Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Hillsboro, OR

I applied online and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in June 2012.

Interview Details – Initial email soliciting interest from hiring manager was followed a week later by request for phone interview with the pre-screen call being 1 week later (1 hour long). Phone interview was casual. No real technical questions as they pre-screened for a level of programming proficiency; looking for personality and behavioral fit to role. Their request to setup a day-long interview was done quickly. Week later on-site interview. On-site started with presentation to group of prior research (1 hour), then 1:1 interviews (x5) with a lunch break with hiring manager and a member of the team. Again, no real technical questions; all behavior and fit questions. Three weeks later contacted by hiring manager with offer decision (yes). 1.5 weeks later contacted by HR with actual offer.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Intel Corporation in October 2010.

Interview Details – I was interviewed as an experienced candidate and the interviewers were fully conscious of my experience level. At times they were even surprised at the depth of understanding I have of various things.

Interview Question – What do you think, are you smart?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was interviewing at a time when the industry was in recession. Negotiation was almost impossible. If I didn't take their offer, I was left with one other offer that was not much better.
