    R&D Yield Enhancement Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Micron Technology.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and met at a college career fair. Unsure of which got me the phone interview. Was emailed to set up a preliminary interview at a time that worked for me. Was awkwardly called an hour earlier than scheduled (their mistake not mine) and had to have them call back at the scheduled time since I was in class. I was asked simple questions, my strengths and weaknesses, why I wanted to work at Micron, etc.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Micron Technology.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview for an unrelated position that ended up being filled by a local candidate. However, my interviewer was impressed and added his recommendation to my profile. I was then contacted some time later about another position I had applied for, and in short order was scheduled for an in-person interview (skipped the phone interview this time). Got flown out to HQ and interviewed individually with several engineers and the manager over about 5 hours. Was given a short tour of the facility at the conclusion. Received a call the next day while waiting for a connection flight home with a job offer.

    Reasons for Declining

    Had another offer waiting at home. Decided to stay close. Micron was *very* competitive with their offer though...

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Micron Technology.

    Interview Details

    First Round: Phone Interview with HR
    Second Round: Direct Supervisor
    Third Round: Line Director
    The first round interview lasted for about 45 minutes including questions regarding the job description, what makes me qualified etc.
    Round two is more specific, where scenarios were proposed and possible solutions and recommendations are given. Overall the experience was good, the people were nice and professional. Some questions were tough, specifically, they asked for implementation details, i.e. the steps it requires to implement a recommendation that was suggested.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Micron Technology.

    Interview Details

    There were three rounds of interview.

    1st round was slightly technical and more about understanding and getting to know your resume.

    2nd round was with a senior manager, this was more of explaining your contribution as a team member in various projects according to your resume.

    3rd round was with the Director, this was more of a attitude check, just like checking whether you will be a good fit for the team. The Director also asked some scenario based questions.

    Very informal interview process. I was asked into a conference room. I spoke to 3 interviewers for 45 minutes each. After that I was introduced to the Vice President of the group. He talked to me at length about my past experience and specifically about a project I had done in the past. he told me what project he had in mind and solicited ideas around his project idea. he asked me if I would be interested in heading up the program he had in mind, to which I replied in the affirmative.

    Intern SSD Product Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boise, ID
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boise, ID
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Micron Technology in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application through their website, sent copy to a friend who works there and he told me it should be 2 pages and highlight the projects I had worked on in school (i.e. special projects, class projects, etc...). So I redrafted my resume as my friend suggested and he turned it in to Human Resources for me. a couple weeks later I was notified by email I would be having a phone interview. I studied up on digital logic, microelectronics and did a little research on NAND Flash memory technology prior to the interview. Tne interviewer never once had to ask me questions like why I wanted to work at Micron, why I would be a good fit there, how and when I had shown initiative in the past, or any of the usual interview questions of that type because I took every opportunity to sell myself by telling the interviewer these things without being prompted. The only technical questions I was asked where specific to NAND Flash memory, the thing I spent the least time studying, but I was able to reason out answers to questions I did not really know the answers to and never once said, 'I don't know'. I didn't really feel the interview went as well as it could have, but I guess I did alright because two weeks later I got an offer letter and will work 13 weeks this summer.

    Interview Questions
    • Why does a NAND memory cell have a finite number of write/erase cycles?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, they send you an offer letter that says what the wage is that they are offering, and since that seemed pretty generous for a Junior in college, and they were offering $600/month housing, I didn't attempt to negotiate further.
