Verification Engineer Interview

Verification Engineer

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Broadcom in October 2013.

Interview Details – Recruiter contacted me through linkedin. Scheduled 1st phone interview. Basic questions about System Verilog, OOP, coverage, most interesting bug that i had found, runt pkts, why seeking to work at broadcom. From my reply, interviewer got an idea that I was switching solely for money, i feel that was the reason i didnt hear back from them. I had answered most of the questions right.
