    Manufacturing Tech Interview

    Interview Details

    Look, the interview is the least predictable tool for future perfomance. It ranks dead last. 1000's of studies have been done to prove this simple fact. The people at Freescale are clueless to this knowledge. If you are a BS'r, all you need is a good script to lie about your qualifications. You will get hired.

    Interview Questions
    • They will ask a question that has no answer. They want to make you squirm a bit. Be honest, have them repeat the question several times, but do not answer. Just say I do not understand the question therefore I will not proceed to give an answer for a solution to a problem I do not understand. Which of course is the correct answer.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Freescale Semiconductor in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the job posting. I was contacted by the hiring manager through e-mail and he set up a time for phone interview. Phone interview was less than 30 minutes long. He came back saying he would like to bring me for onsite interview. Onsite interview was from 9 AM - 2 PM including a 1-hour lunch break. Interview was cool. I appreciate the way interviewers handled each round. My hiring manager initially gave me an overview about the team and scope of the role for which I was being interviewed. I did not feel like the interview was particularly tough, but I enjoyed the rounds.
