    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Freescale Semiconductor in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Great experience to integrate with the RF Military team. If you are not an Electrical Engineer do not bother interviewing. They say they are pro veteran/ military however; the Engineer's are not sincere nor respect transitioning business students from the military.It was a very humiliating experience.
