    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at EFI (Meredith, NH) in July 2008.

    Interview

    Phone interview was thorough but fair. In person interview consisted of meeting 5 different people for around an hour each, quite grueling. All of the interviewers asked pertinent questions relating to the field, my skills, or work ethic. No stupid questions about what cookie or animal I would be. Interviewers were friendly and professional.

    Negotiation

    I didn't really negotiate. They asked my range, and made me an offer at the low end of it, and I accepted.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EFI (Bangalore (India)).

    Interview

    Attended this as a New College Grad Interview, out of my UG. Most questions consisted of in-depth details about the project and also basic C questions. Was asked to provide a White board session, explaining various components in my UG project and what was my contribution to each.

    Negotiation

    Offer was good for College Grad, so no negotiation. They also offered stocks (RSU) for college grad, which was cool.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at EFI in February 2012.

    Interview

    The entire process was very quick. They called me in the morning and asked for a phone interview in the evening. I agreed to that and they wanted me to come in for an on-site interview the very next day. It was a little surprising how fast they were moving. I had other commitments so I unfortunately had to delay the process but I went in for the on-site a couple of days later. I had six 1:1 interviews with various people. It was a good experience because the interviewers were very nice. I got the offer the very next day. The down side was that they expected me to accept it immediately.

    Interview Questions

    • Overall the questions weren't very difficult. One unexpected question was to create Fibonacci series for negative numbers   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Make sure you discuss the job profile in detail.

    Interview

    Resume Shortlisting ---- Now they are considering candidate from top 50 institutes. First round (Introduction, basic technical questions) ---- May be telephonic. Second Round --- After clearing the first telephonic round, they will call you for face to face interview. In second round 2 or 3 manager will take interview separately. So possible repetition of questions (puzzles & technical). Third Round ---- HR round (only salary negotiation)
