    Interview Details

    One phone interview, first half was technical but no coding. One high level design question related to my expertise and the particular position I was seeking, one OOP question.

    Second half was behavioral/non-technical. The interviewer asked me about something on my resume too, and requested that I elaborate on what I did for a particular item he was interested in and what my responsibilities were.

    Overall very easy interview.

    Contacted by HR, and scheduled for 2 phone interviews. After the 2nd interview, I was told there would be a third phone interview which was not originally scheduled. One or two days before the third round of phone interview process, I received an email that the team decided to give me an offer. After 2-3 weeks, I received an offer letter from HR.

    Interview Details

    Hired from campus directly via on-campus interviews. It was a pretty streamlined process, a cv filter followed by 2 interviews. 1 technical and 1 HR. technical questions involved the standard digital logic questions and dsp questions. Interviewers were warm and receptive and made you feel pretty comfortable in general.- Glassdor

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through Qualcomm's website. The recruiter first contacted me about 2 weeks after I applied, and my interview was scheduled for the following week.

    The interview process was very friendly and conducted very efficiently. It consisted of two phone interviews, one HR interview and one technical interview. The HR interview was you very standard interview - i.e. Why Qualcomm? Why Computer Science? etc. The technical interview was also very standard, consisting of one coding problem, two brain teasers, and two conceptual questions.

    After 2 weeks or so, I got a verbal offer over the phone, and a week later received the formal offer letter.

    Interview Details

    I sent in my resume. A few weeks later they got back to me telling me they would like to interview me. The interviews tested my knowledge of how C++ worked but, even though they were all coding questions, mostly tested my ability to think. I had a competing offer at the time with a strict time limit and they did a good job of getting back to me before my other offer expired.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on the careers site. I had one phone interview with a manager. He went through my resume briefly, asked me what I like about technology, where I see myself in the future, what my interests are, and specifics about projects I had worked on. I was surprised that there were not more technical questions.

    Interview Details

    I went to the career fair offered at my school and dropped off my resume at Qualcomm. About 2 weeks later I was contacted by a recruiter who scheduled an interview for me on campus. It was a one time interview and I got an offer less than a week after. I got 2 coding questions and one puzzle. The first one was to identify bugs on some simple code. Second one was to return the most frequent character in a given string.

    Went to a career fair, got contacted to do an interview about a week later. They took all the people who they interviewed out to dinner, which was nice. They also gave everyone nice hoodies too. After I interviewed they said they would get back to me in about a week maybe two. Great interviewing experience.

    The interviewer had no expression during the interview. But he didn't ask me very hard questions. "Cold" but nice I would say.
