    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter, who scheduled a phone call after a few emails. I went through 2 phone screens with some technical questions, and was invited for an on-site. The on-site took all day and was mainly technical, but the interviewers were more focused on how you think and approach the problem. An offer came a week later.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was really difficult, some of the personality questions caught me off-guard but I guess I did fine.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    If you go through a recruiter, make sure you negotiate hard on the salary and try and talk directly with your manager. The recruiter will severely low-ball you, and may or may not have all of the details of your position correct.
