Design Verification Engineer Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at AMD (Boxborough, MA) in December 2011.
I had 2 phone interviews over 4 weeks. Generally discussed about current research projects. I was invited to meet the team in Boxborough, MA in December. I had around 7 personal interviews including one during lunch. The interviewers were pretty good asked questions on microarchitecture, projects, object oriented concepts, verification and logic design.
I was informed by the recruiter that they'll have a decision by next day. I was told that the team was interested in my candidacy but wanted to conduct one more interview over Skype. I didn't here back from them for about 4 weeks when they told me that they have already identified a other candidate.
Overall it was very poor and unprofessional job by the team manager and the recruiter.

I applied through college or university – interviewed at AMD (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in November 2010.
Just one on-site interview before hiring. Was interviewed by two engineers on the team. Was for most parts a typical software engineering interview, only superficial questions about hardware. No explicit coding questions but lots of questions about how you would code it.
After receiving the offer, I was also invited to a tour of the company's buildings and to meet the rest of the team.
- How would you verify a that a basic flip-flop works? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at AMD (Austin, TX) in February 2012.
After applying online, received phone call a few days later from a lower-level employee with a couple of years experience. The phone interview was completely technical in nature, with no personality or leadership questions. Got invited to be flown down for an on-site interview, but was already in town, so was able to interview the next day.
On-site interview was four 45-minute interviews with employees of different divisions within the working group, each one-on-one, and all of them completely technical with no non-technical questions. They also provided lunch with entry-level employees from working group.
Was given the impression that would receive a follow-up contact within a few days but did not receive any contact until I inquired over a month later.
Overall, the people were friendly and the campus was nice. Got the feeling that people enjoyed working there.
