Program Manager Interview

Program Manager

Interviewed at Texas Instruments

Interview Details – I was initially contacted by the Manager I'd be working for and interviewed over the phone. I had another phone interview by another person in the department. I then was called in for on-site interviews with the Manager and three other members of the team. The on-site interviews were very thorough and took nearly 6 hours (they did take me out for an hour long lunch). A few days later I received a call from a TI recruiter from their corporate HR department indicating that the manager wanted to extend an offer. I went through a negotiation period with the HR person where we reached agreement, he extended an offer verbally and overnighted a written offer to me.

Design Engineer Interview

Design Engineer

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Texas Instruments in October 2010.

Interview Details – two rounds of phone interview, then on-site interview and finally some phone interviews again with upper management. On-site interview was pretty technical and the team was friendly. The whole process was taking a bit too long than what I would expected.

Negotiation Details – the offer met my expectation so no negotiation was needed

Product Marketing Engineer Intern Interview

Product Marketing Engineer Intern
Plano, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Texas Instruments in November 2013.

Interview Details – I talked to on-campus recruiters at my university's career fair about my experience, what i was interested in, etc. They invited me for an on-campus interview later that week. The on-campus interview was about 30min and the woman asked me some questions but also told me a lot about what she did as a sales engineer. I received a somewhat cryptic followup email about "we were pleased to meet with you, we will let you know if we have any positions meeting your qualifications." I then received a formal invitation to interview again. This time it was through a service called HireView, where i had to complete a video interview where they flashed a question for :30s then i had 1min to record my answer before the next question popped up. I then was invited for a final interview, also through the HireView site, but this time with a manager. I was then emailed a few weeks later with an offer.

Interview Question – Questions included: Explain how an op-amp works. What is the greatest struggle you have encountered and what did you do about it? What is your greatest weakness?   Answer Question
