    The process took a dayinterviewed at Freescale Semiconductor in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    This might be a little bit special case as Freescale was trying to setup a local sw team from the group of motorola who get just layedoff. There was a close relationship between these two companies and you know most of the persons. Therefore the interview is kind of general and many are puzzle or high level questions.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Freescale Semiconductor in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interviewers are very kind. It's like talking with other people other than an interview The questions are now hard but require background or corresponding experience in the field. Though the questions are basic, you need to have a solid foundation of the field so that you can answer it completely to meet the requirement.
