    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Freescale Semiconductor (Anaheim, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I found them at a convention, they almost turned me away by giving me the old apply online scheme, and then I blurted out my experience related to the position and they signed me up for an interview. They seem to want people that demonstrate interest in their company and have an idea of what they want to do with Freescale.
