One phone interview and then interview with 6 managers and one thesis presentation. Interview and hiring process went very smooth and well organized. Most of the questions were behavior based. Few general technical questions were included. Thesis presentation took one hour with a good Q and A.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in October 2014.
It was a very good interview process. I was interviewed by area managers and senior engineers and I also had to give them a one hour presentation on my thesis. They asked general questions about what I have studied and what my research is about. They also asked a lot of questions on my research as well as my internship and gave me scenarios that I would have to deal with and what is the best way to deal with a particular problem.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Intel Corporation (Portland, OR) in October 2014.
45 minute one on ones with 5-6 people, mix of behavioral and technical questions. 1 hour presentation with Q/A on my research experience. 1.5 hour lunch fairly informal. We spoke mostly about the job culture. The managers I met with were all from different areas so the questions varied wildly from things like sorting techniques (CS) to semiconductor physics. Not sure why some basic concepts which are quick to learn and covered in every undergraduate curriculum are asked. I can't imagine most people will remember everything they've learned when put on the spot. Team seemed friendly and the atmosphere seemed very good.

I applied online – interviewed at Intel Corporation.
Asked questions on fundamental engineering courses: thermo, diffusion, reaction kinetics, etc. Had phone, group and 1:1 interviews. Questions about Fick's law, refrigeration, Arrhenius equation. Not too difficult, more open ended to understand how you think. Just talk out answer if you don't know to show your thinking process. They also asked some basic semiconductor questions like: What is Moore's law, what are the different processes in semiconductor manufacturing.

Process Engineering position after a PhD in EE. Got a phone call and was asked to attend an on-site interview. After about 4 weeks, I got an offer. Focus on problem solving and know your PhD work well. Don't worry about questions that you can't answer, but, make sure that you show the interviewer that you can work towards the answer with some help or assumptions.
- All sorts of questions on points taken off my resume. e.g. I had XRD in my resume and I was asked to explain how it works. Not the fine details, but an overall practical knowledge. Answer Question
No room for negotiation.

There's a healthy amount of room for career growth, but you have to work hard to get there. Safety, quality, and attention to detail are taken very seriously at all levels of management. Work life balance can be good with the right manager.” – Full Review
