    Senior ASIC Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Marvell Technology in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is standard, first , there is a telephonic screen which is totally technical, and lasts about an hour.
    Then they call you for an onsite interview , which lasts about 5 hours, with 5 one-on-one interviews with the whole team.
    The interview itself is pretty standard.
    But, what comes after that is an utter non-professionalism. 2 days after the interview, I get a call from the HR that I have been selected for this position, and we can start the background check and have the salary negotiations.
    I did that, and the background check results also came back after a week, which was clean.
    Then, I get a call from HR that the approval now needs to be taken from VP of the group, the hiring manager has given the approval already.
    So, I wait 1 week and no response. So , I call the HR and ask her what is the delay about. She says, VP is busy in meetings, and will take 2-3 more days. I wait, and then comes and reply that the approval of VP is done and approved.
    The next thing now is that the approval needs to come from CEO. I was totally shocked at this - I am interviewing for a senior engineer position, and not a director position, why would the CEO be involved in this selection process.
    She answered - its a standard procedure for all employee selection at Marvell. The approval for all should come from CEO, and since he is out of the country for a couple of weeks on business, that will take time.
    So, I wait, and after 2 weeks, I call again, and comes a reply that he is busy, and cannot be done this week.
    I was totally angry at this unprofessional behavior now. I was made to wait for just an approval, and that too, I need to call everytime to ask for an update.
    So, after a week, I call again, and she says, the CEO has not approved. I asked why is that - the whole interviewing team has given me full marks for my technical skills, the hiring manager was totally impressed by my skills, the VP approved, and why not CEO?
    The answer was totally unacceptable - we do not know why he has declined, and we cannot ask why.

    I was so angry at this. I have vowed never to work for Marvell in my life, even of they offer me 10 times the salary. I wasted a lot of my time in the procedure, which was thoroughly unprofessional.
