    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed 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.
