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
Co-Op Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at AMD
Interview Details – The interview was off-site and on-campus. There were two rounds with two hiring managers from two different locations, one west coast and one east coast. The interviews were pretty relaxed, and were predominantly technical after basic introductions. One was exclusively analog with a fairly basic written circuit problem, asking about I/O behavior. The other was more on the digital side but ended with a rod-related question.
Interview Question – The rod-related question asked about how different electrical properties of the rod would change with length or volume. Answer Question
