    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AMD (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    So far I have received a phone call. It was fairly simple and she was friendly. I was too nervous and kind of hesitated. I was expecting behavioural questions and I had a sheet of notes in front of me. Didn't get to use it at all. There were a few other ones than stated below, but nothing behavioural, just 'about me' questions. Update: I got an face to face interview with two other people. They were very friendly and great. I was really scared waiting for them to come, but after meeting them made me relax naturally, maybe because they were not old? Here are most of the questions they asked: - Tell me more about yourself - If you have a bug and the developer can't fix it, what will you do? - If you have 10 things to finish by the end of the day and you cannot finish it, what will you do? - What kind of monitor do I have? - What kind of gfx card do I have? - What kind of games do I play? - What is the resolution for 1080p? (I actually messed this up) - Explain AMD's edge removal technology (when dual monitors are together) - What are the modes you can do when you use multiple monitors? (looked like they were asking for the modes from catalyst, not from windows) - You say you're tech savvy, what websites do you follow? - What experience you have with OS and what have you used? - Whats youre idea of a quality product? If we have 8million lines of code, is that quality? - What was the hardest programming thing you did? - What experience in building computers you have? - What type of display connectors are there (vga, dvi ... )? - What is the difference between DVI and HDMI? There was only 2-3 behavioural questions, the conversation steered more to my experience at previous job. They said if I get the job, i'll hear from them in two weeks. There were a few other ones. I felt like I underrepresented myself and screwed up the simplest technical questions. Anyhow, what a learning experience.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at AMD (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    very good and nice interviewer! Most of the questions are very technical including verilog coding, state diagram. Do not really have time to prepare it and review the verilog coding in advance, but the interviewer is very good and lead me to solve the problems. He smiles and respect you the whole time whether you can solve the question or not.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at AMD in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through my university. The interview was about 1 hour long, mostly technical questions, about verilog, timing analysis of digital logic and power dissipation. The questions weren't difficult, but the interviewer seemed strangely critical of my answers. I'm not sure if he was doing it on purpose, but he came off a little harsh.

    Interview

    I applied through university. Just had one interview. There were two interviews and both of them were nice. Both of them were Hardware Engineers. I am mainly focused on Software. But this position required both HW and SW skills so I was interested. They asked me a mixture of hardware and software questions. Mainly hardware. They asked me to write Verilog and C. Most of the questions were pretty straightforward and basic.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to write the Verilog code for a D-Flip Flop. I had forgottend verilog, so I asked them if I could write it in pseudo-code. I dervied and wrote the code from first principles. I think this impressed them.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I got another offer from another company that was paying more.
