Corporate Marketing Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Mentor Graphics.

Interview Details – I was contacted about the opportunity after they selected my resume from a uni career fair. We communicated via email about the position before a phone interview. A week after the phone interview, I was invited on-site for multiple interviews and to give a technical presentation. A very positive experience and it paid off as it has paved the way for further engineering roles within the company.

Interview Question – It was one technical question in a topic that I was not that skilled in. It didn't hinder me as I got the other ones correct.   Answer Question

Product Marketing Manager Interview

Product Marketing Manager
Minneapolis, MN

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Mentor Graphics in June 2008.

Interview Details – I knew the person that was hiring and she was pretty sure she wanted to hire me, so the interviews were a bit of a formality. I did 2 interviews, both pretty standard and routine. Mentor is big, global company, but outside of headquarters things are relatively relaxed, and that's how the interviews felt.

Interview Question – Unfortunately I don't recall the interview questions that were asked.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Fairly straightforward. There wasn't really any room to negotiate on salary.
