I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at IDT.

Interview Details – Really great communication. Secretary set everything up without a hitch. Tough, but fair and organized interview.

Senior Test Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
San Jose, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at IDT in June 2011.

Interview Details – The hiring manager of a new group at IDT contacted me for Sr Test Engineer position and asked me a few questions (phone screen) about my past experience.
I was then asked to come in for an onsite interview. There I met with several members of the team from Test and Design as well as with the Director of that new group. Half of the questions were focused on my experience, and the other half were technical, focused on OpAmps, Power Management devices (LDO, Buck, Boost), and some basic fundamental circuit questions.
