    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Intel Corporation (Orlando, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Intel was visiting my school. Handed over my resume at their interview session and got an interview call next day. Was an hour long chat with the recruiter. He asked mostly behavioral questions and about what I do in my research. He spoke a lot about the position and the environment in the company and how I need to adapt myself to the environment if I get selected. He said he would send me an email and let me know the outcome of the interview in four days.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume at a job fair and was contacted when a position opened several months later for a phone interview. Phone interview lasted ~45 minutes and was mostly behavioral questions and an introduction to the job tasks. I was invited for a site visit a few weeks later and did a full day interview with multiple current employees as well as a research presentation. Half of the interviews were pleasant and mostly focused on behavioral questions. The other half were very difficult, consisting of lots of high-stress questions about problem solving and technical questions about coursework from graduate school. I imagine their purpose was to push me to my intellectual limit and to see how I handled stress. Several people talked about the constant stress of the job and how tricky it was to maintain work/life balance. They did not make it seem like a desirable job, especially given how demanding it was.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview with a hiring manager first. It took about one hour with questions about my background, my school, my resume, and behavior questions. It was a good opportunity for the manager to know me and for me to present myself. The most important thing is to know what you put on your resume and do not leave an impression that you overly decorate your resume. I got a on site interview invitation at the end of the phone call. It surprised me at that time since I thought they needed some time to consider my performance. 3 weeks later, I went to the onsite interview. The experience of the on site interview left me a very positive impression of intel. The interviewers were very nice and professional. I know one day interview can be exhausted, but I think I prepared it well. I rehearsed my presentation very carefully before I went there, so I think I did a pretty good job of time control. Most of the questions were behavior questions and technical questions of my presentation. In general, all discussion was of PhD level, so make sure you know what you talk about. The whole process of the on site interview took from 8:30 to 4:45.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Got the refer from a previous memeber from my lab, and got the email to arrange a phone interview in one week. The phone interview took about one hour, a lot of behavior questions and technical questions. It was focused on instruments and trouble shooting skills. At the end of the phone interview I was invited for on-site interview after 3 weeks. The on-site interview was very intense, including one hour presentation, and 6 one to one interview, each about one hour. Still focused on technical questions, and behavior questions. Still trouble shooting ability, and the understanding of lab instruments are very important. The ability of locate problems and sensitivity of statistics is very important. How to handle relationship with boss and coworkers, communication skills are what they would like to hear. One of the interviewer was very strict, and tough, that might be part of the stress test. It has been almost 4 weeks since the on-site, and I am still waiting for the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Most familiar instrument, and how they work. Trouble shooting experience, and specific examples. Why do you want to work for Intel? What is the most difficult problem in the graduate study, and how did you solve it? How did I determine if a vacuum system has a very minor leakage. How does XRD work, and how did I determint if a sample is single crystal or not. Talk about yourself, whatever you like to talk.   Answer Question
