I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Cirrus Logic in February 2010.

Company was extremely supportive during job transition time where I was unable to work for several months

Technician Interview

Technician
Austin, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Cirrus Logic in July 2012.

Interview Details – Passed my resume to hiring manager through a friend. I was contacted by HR through email and was asked if I wished to interview. I told them I did and was sent to site to fill out online application.

Interview day I was met by the hiring manager, taken on a tour of the facility, then did a 1:1 with 3 other employees.

I got the feeling that I was being interviewed for a different job than the one I applied for as the questions they asked were not really relevant to the position.

Interview Question – Most questions asked were not really relevant to the job applied for.   Answer Question

Digital Design Engineer Interview

Digital Design Engineer
Austin, TX

The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Cirrus Logic in May 2012.

Interview Details – They are very good in planning and scheduling the interview . Atleast in my case they were. They send you the topics they normally interview for that particular position. You can have a look at them but most questions will be simple in the first round . Manager calls and tests basics of digital design in first interview . Later in the second interview they become more specific to the job profile. After this they normally take you for a round of onsite interviews. And mostly inform about their promptly.

Interview Question – How will you divide clock by 2 using d flip flops.   View Answer
