    Interview

    Applied on ARM website in March 2015. Got call from recruiter in April 3rd week. Interview was scheduled on 30 April 2015 with Senior Architect. Interviewer was impatient. Always wanting to hurry up. He would not listen or wait till answer was completed. Didn't describe about team or job. Directly went to questions. Only one question regarding cache. Everything else was software related. 1. Work experience 2. Cache basics 3. Data Structure 4. String manipulation 5. Debugging C code - Profiling It lasted for 20 minutes. Very bad experience. No greetings. He lacked basic courtesy or etiquette of telephonic interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at ARM Holdings.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR, onsite interview first with two managers and then with HR. The HR representative was pleasant and professional, but not particularly engaging. Of the two managers, one was engaged and asked questions, the other didn't ask much. The questions were relatively softball and not very difficult.
