Member of Technical Staff Interview

Anonymous Employee
Sunnyvale, CA

I interviewed at AMD in August 2010.

Interview Details – The resume was forwarded by an internal contact. So, the interview setup/scheduling was relatively quick over email.
3 rounds of interview: two with the team members and one with the director.

The interview with ~7 team members was mainly technical. Question on:
Digital design principles: setup/hold times and ways to address setup/hold time issues, state machines, finding issues with digital circuits, other logic design questions
C: handling different endianness, embedded C code optimization issues
System Verilog questions
Logical puzzles

After the first two rounds the hiring manager indicated that the feedback was good and he would like me to come in to meet the director.

It took about 2 weeks from that point to receive an offer

Interview Question – Nothing was really difficult but some of the questions on System Verilog were very specialized /infrequntly used cases.   Answer Question

Talent Acquisition Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at AMD.

Interview Details – Two phone interviews, one with the recruiter and another with the hiring manager. I then went through a full day of interviews. They were just in the process of starting a new way of interviewing where each interviewer had a different value they were asked to probe. It was a behavioral interview format. The main concern about the process was that there wasn't clarity, and in some cases, disagreement on what they really needed in the position.

Interview Question – There really wasn't a difficult question.   Answer Question
