    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Linear Technology (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    I got a phone interview for this position. The letter mentions it will be all technical problems, including BJT, pn junction, and CMOS. The hiring manager asked very detail on each device, so you must be very familiar with them. The manager will give you some hints if you cannot answer. It takes more than forty minutes on the phone.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Linear Technology (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    on campus interview, 45min, face to face, 35 min of question and then you can ask questions about LTC. Questions from transistor fundamental to circuit analysis. A manager is interviewing me, he is very nice and will give you hint if you cannot answer the question.

    Interview Questions

    • transistor level question. start from I-V curve of mos and bjt, basic layout of mos and bjt. gain of a transistor. then draw a circuit and analyse it with VDD shift and Vin shift. Define transistors region of operation. Require deep understanding of circuit and analyze it quickly and right.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Linear Technology in February 2014.

    Interview

    One of its director contacted me through email. Then we had a phone talk about some general but philosophy questions about analog circuit design. One week's later, I had a phone interview with one of his senior engineers about several technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    • A circuit like current mirror but quite strange. Because instead of copying current from a diode connected transistor to current source, the circuit intends to copy the current back.   1 Answer

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely professional from start to finish. Initial contact was made at a career fair and an offer to come to their facility for an interview was extended at that time. The interview lasted about 4 hours, with a one hour overview of the company/position and a tour of the facility, followed by about 2 1/2 hours of one-on-one interviews with two supervisors, and then a 1/2 hour recap.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were all technical-based to determine the level of understanding of basic analog circuit design.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Linear Technology in November 2013.

    Interview

    Overall, Interview process went well. Got a phone interview, and then an onsite interview. Onsite was 1 on 1 interview for about 1 hour each session. Interview took the whole day, maybe 8 hour or so. I was exhausted. Tested on fundamental circuit theories and also digital circuits theories. Very nice, bright, and professional interviewers. Would definitely enjoy working at the facility, but did not receive any follow up after the onsite.

    Interview

    In phone interview, a design lead send me a 3 schematics and asked multiple questions for each schematic. You will have to have great insight of each transistor and current flowing in the asking moment and should answer. One is familiar op amp circuit but the other two are very unfamiliar and creative. Offset, transconductance, mismatch, current flowing, Circuit with multiple BJTs. Looking simple circuit but very creative.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of questions were unexpected. You may know the circuit and the analysis if you can put a number/equation after printing out but may not answer at the moment while viewing monitor. To me, the way interviewer is asking is not familiar and was not able to concentrate. Just freezed.   Answer Question
