    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at AMD (Sunnyvale, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I was interviewed for a software position for summer internship. Got three phone interviews. First one was with the manager and he gave a brief description about the position and the work and some behavioral questions. After a couple of days, I got an email from him that I passed his screening and he asked me to schedule interviews with two other team members.
    The interviews with the team members were purely technical. I was asked to code in a shared document. They tested on bitwise manipulations and assembly language. Though I didnt know exact mnemonics, but the interviewer said he will look at the logic and not the instructions.
    The interviews were not very difficult, easy enough if you know some details of C and computer architecture. I didn't have any onsite interview perhaps because it was an intern position thats why.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a question about bit manipulations in C, do not remember exactly.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    interviewed at AMD (Sunnyvale, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    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 Questions

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