I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at AMD (Austin, TX) in November 2009.
The interview process started out with a couple of telephone interviews. The interviews focused on skills, knowledge, and similar normal interview questions. The people I talked to spent a lot of time talking about the organization they wanted me to join and the challenges they were facing, and they were very upfront.
- Spent about 15 minutes getting into the specifics of how I would fix a very particular problem they were facing, and they had some ideas already for what they expected for an answer. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at AMD (Austin, TX) in February 2009.
I was referred to the org through a friend, and applied via their website. Within a period of two weeks, I received a call from the recruitment team. I was given a traditional interview screen consisting on my main strengths, work and product background, current position, and reasons for leaving (only got into my current compensation late in the process).
A few days after that, I was screened by the hiring manager. Following that I came in for a day of interviews (5 -6 people). A week following I received an offer, and had flexibility to negotiate some aspects. Had to pass a background check before it became official. All total, it took about a month or so for the whole process.... again, very traditional.
- I don't recall there being any "difficult" questions... I seem to remember that some of the questions were repeated by different interviewers. Answer Question
Negotiation phase was pretty easy. It isn't a hard culture, and they genuinely want you coming in believing you are being fairly paid.
