Very Easy Interview

Marketing Assistant Interview

Marketing Assistant
Tempe, AZ

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – What have you ever done technical? (not unexpected but condescending unless BSEE and/or MSEE ask this a lot)   View Answers (2)

Manger indicated that my exposure to tools were relevant to the job but hardly asked anything technical or generic.

Modeling Engineer Interview

Modeling Engineer
Tempe, AZ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Freescale Semiconductor in March 2008.

Interview Details – Just before my Ph.D defense a friend referred me for a job as a device modeling engineer at Freescale's tempe campus. The interview started at 9.30 amwith my hour long presentation. This was followed by one on one interviews with 10 engineers from the group lasting approx 20-30 minutes each. There was the usual 45-50 min lunch break with the manager and the director/VP when I was taken out to local restaurant. The interview process lasted until 6.30 pm which I think was stretched out. I was told I will be the last person in the group to be hired out of N. America... the future expansion plans and subsequent hiring will be all out of Freescale's Shangai facility and I will have to work with them.....blah blah

I never heard from them again .... probably they hired someone who speaks mandarin ...

I work for a US defense contractor now.
