    Product Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Micron Technology.

    Interview Details

    Interview was on campus in a career fair. The questions asked were quite easy but I am not even sure if they were looking for candidates. I live in Salt lake city, Utah and their main office is in Boise, Idaho. So, they mostly hire candidates from Boise. They usually come to Utah for career fairs, interview candidates and never get back. I have been interviewed twice but did not get a response back on both times.

    I had a phone interview, then got called the day after for information to get flown in for an onsite interview. I had two panel (3-4 managers) interviews on site. One before lunch and another after lunch. HR recruiter checked me in and brought me to the interview room. After first interview I was taken to lunch at their cafeteria. After lunch I was brought back to the interview room for another round of interviews. The interviews were heavily technical base. The team was very accommodating and help with questions you get stuck on.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Micron Technology in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Went to the career fair at my school and talked with one of the recruiters. Got a call only a couple of hours after the career fair and they wanted to schedule an interview for the very next morning. There were two 15 minute interviews. The first was mixed between circuits questions and miscellaneous intuitive questions. Thought the interview went great but waiting to hear back from them.

    Process Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Micron Technology.

    Interview Details

    I had an on-sight interview here at my university. The interview was technical, with questions pertaining to the type of work, and my own research. The second interview was over the phone and was more for HR, with questions mostly focusing on what I knew about the company, so make sure to know a little about their history and current status, but mostly about where they plan to go in the future (i.e. new technology). The third interview was a conference call with 3 engineers. It was mostly technical again with questions about the technology pertaining to the position, but they were questions mostly about my research. I wasn't an expert in the technology since I have been working with it less than 1 year, so there were questions I didn't know the answer to.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't remember the exact wording, but it was something along the lines of "Give an example of when you made a suggestion to the project that made a big/good impact."   View Answer

    Product Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    Attended an information session on campus and talked with them during a career fair. They called me a week and a half later to set a phone interview. Phone interview was with three engineers. They went over what their part of the company does and then went over my resume. They asked me about my education and work experience and how it related to Micron. They then sent me two files for technical questions. The first was a simple c program that printed out different types of data with pointers. I went through it and explained what each statement printed out. When I wasn't sure they helped point me in the right direction. The second file was about different transistor setups and what their truth tables were. I understood the first question because it was a plain circuit, but didn't understand(until later) the second because it was more of a physical layout. They then asked if I had any questions and thanked me for the interview. They were very nice and helped me understand the things I wasn't sure about. This was my first technical interview and I learned a lot from it.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Micron Technology in October 2014.

Questions included I-V characteristics, cross sections of MOSFET, design a NAND gate, etc. If you were stumped, they tended to lead you to where you could come up with an answer. 5 weeks later, they scheduled an in person which will be about a 5 hour process of multiple 1:1 interviews and a panel interview.

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Micron Technology.

    Interview Details

    This was my first interview with the company and it was a grueling 50 minute phone screen. My interviewer asked me around 8 technical questions, all about CMOS processing concepts. He invited me to share as much detail as possible, which threw me off a bit. The interview was long and a bit exhausting but he seemed pleased at my attempts to answer his questions. I got invited for a second phone interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Discuss as many design considerations as you can related to MOSFET scaling, specifically short-channel effects. Whenever I mentioned a short-channel effect, he'd probe me on the physics behind it. Wanted as technical an explanation as I could provide on the phone.   Answer Question

    SSD Firmware Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boise, ID
    Anonymous Employee in Boise, ID
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Micron Technology in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 phone interviews before they invited me on-site for the in-person interview. The phone interviews were quite easy and were more like a conversation (mostly about my past experiences). The on-site interview was LONG! Be sure to either bring water with you or ask for water breaks whenever possible because there is a lot of talking involved!

    I was told I would have an answer in about 2 weeks. I hadn't heard from them so I called the recruiter and learned that they went with another candidate.

    Some of the questions asked throughout the process were:

    --Explain the keyword volatile and why would you use it?
    --What is the keyword static used for?
    --What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of FLASH memory?
    --Explain the differences between an SSD and HDD.
    --What is PCI/PCIe? SATA?
    .

    Interview Questions
    • There was an SSD coding problem I was expected to write on the white board. It wasn't too difficult. Erase all the NAND in an SSD using some given info and constraints (write in any language you'd like)   Answer Question
