Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Texas Instruments.

Interview

They contacted me several weeks after my universities job fair. I had a pleasant face to face interview on campus and at the end he told me I should hear back in two weeks. That interview was not very technical but rather about my interests and schoolwork. I instead heard back a month later that I got to the second round of interviews. They said it would be a technical video interview on their own video conferencing system. Two whole months after I got the email that i moved to the next round they finally scheduled a time for the video interview after many unsuccessful attempts on their end. This interview was completely behavioral after telling me that it would be technical. They asked a lot about the teams and projects that I worked on. They also asked me to explain the process we used to collect data in one of my projects. I was not happy that they took so long to schedule the interview but only hours after my interview sent me an email that I did not get the position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview

    The interviewer first told me about TI and info about this position. Then there were behavior questions, focusing on multitask, teamwork and projects. The technical questions are not hard, but he may choose a topic that you may not very familiar with, but with appropriate reasoning it is no hard to get there. I didn't get any response for a month after this interview. it's like they don't send deny emails.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about one time that your team didn't work as expected. Tell me about one failure.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Answered some questions in an on-line, all behavioural questions, no technical questions. Next, interviewed via webcam. Again mostly just behavioural questions and just going over resume. Was flown to Dallas. Went out to dinner with about 4 other candidates and a couple of current employees. Was very relaxed. Next morning, interviewed with 2 sets of 2 managers. Nothing really technical, lots of behavioural questions again.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview

    I was refered by a current employee. After filling out an online application I had an online interview. The interview was automated and I had to record myself answering 7 behavioral questions. The questions were about times that I had to work with an uncooperative partner/ times that I failed at something. The next interview was a skype interview with two applications engineers. This was very technical. They asked me questions about my resume and about my general knowledge of electrical engineerin.

    Interview

    I applied online and had two online interviews. One of which asked to answer a few questions by myself, the other was actually talking to a representative. The questions were not too difficult, but it was hard to convey communication skills while not in person.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) in November 2014.

    Interview

    3 stage process, first webcam recordings, then webcam face to face, then onsite. Heard back on the afternoon of the onsite interview in Dallas. The interviewers vary. Some were very strict and asked hard questions, some just asked standard behavioral questions. Some were nice and some were mean, but if you show the required traits they will note it down.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Texas Instruments in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online around the time of my university's career fair and a week later I was emailed a link to sign up for an interview. The interview was around 30 minutes, most of it was talking about myself, coursework, projects, skills and whatnot. There were frequent questions on what I was talking about, almost to see if I in fact knew what I was talking about, nothing too specific or tough.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were specifically about my projects. For example I mentioned I've worked with robots and he asked how servos work. The only general questions he had were, can you describe to me how a MOSFET works? what would you say op amps are most useful for?   Answer Question
