    Graduate Intern Technical Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Intel Corporation in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by my prospective boss via e-mail within a week or so of responding to a solicitation for a specific internship on Intel's website, and we arranged a phone interview for later in the week.

    He was fairly punctual about calling me and was easy to talk to. The interview wasn't what I expected -- no technical questions were asked, he started immediately with asking me if I had any questions, and so I proceeded to ask some things about what kind of environment I would be working in, what the surrounding area is like, and what kind of work I would be doing. He was reluctant to tell me the actual nature of the project, so I didn't press it. He asked me a few questions along the way, such as what my future ambitions were. All told, it was about an hour.

    I heard back from him via e-mail a little less than two months later asking if I had any plans for the summer yet and that he had tentatively chosen someone that had done their graduate research in the exact area of the job (what are the odds, but then again, it's Intel) but was checking in on me as an alternate. I had already accepted another offer by that point, though.

    Legal Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone call, 1:1 in person, and then a round of in person interviews. Very interesting, cutting edge work. The position changed in scope over time. I was led to believe that I would get the job, and then did not, due to the changed scope. The people were very nice, professional, laid back. The atmosphere was cold. Labyrinths of of drab cubicles, lots of Lenovo ThinkPads, limited facilities for food, beverages or snacks. Seemed like the building would be a tough place for a creative person to work. It was very different from a typical Silicon Valley startup (ironic, since Intel is the ultimate Silicon Valley success story).

    Interview Questions
    • Unexpectedly easy questions. I would have liked to have been challenged so that I could have shined brighter.   Answer Question
