I interviewed at AMD in May 2013.
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
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

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at AMD in October 2010.
Interview Details – My recruiter worked with the hiring manager to arrange for my interview. The whole process goes pretty smoothly. They asked some basic questions, not very deep. The only thing is that after the on-site interview, they didn't gave me a quick response. It turned out that they were interviewing several other peoples and try to decided which one is the best. I communicated to them that I cannot wait very long and I am considering other opportunities. Immediately the HR manager called me up and told me that I was their best candidate and made the offer.
Reason for Declining – I found a better position with another company. Besides, Austin is way too hot for me.
