Component Design Engineer Interview

Component Design Engineer
Hillsboro, OR

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in January 2013.

Interview Details – I got a call from the hiring manager for a position I had not applied for, which I thought was funny (as I had applied for at least 2 dozen positions before). The phone interview was about 45 min and in the end he asked about the my availability for an onsite interview. The onsite interview was very tiring (9 AM to 4 PM). I interviewed with 9/10 managers or team members. The questions ranged from verilog, RTL design, analog design, puzzles, transistor layout questions, perl scripting, c coding.
There were a bunch of other candidates interviewing with me. They took all the candidates together for lunch which was a little awkward as everyone was trying to make an impression.
A few questions were from my resume but others wew

Chandler, AZ

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in June 2010.

Interview Details – All day interview of one hour each with six different people. Each interview covered a different area of engineering including circuit design, logic circuits, computer programming, validation, and testing. Shufflled from room to room for each interview, sometimes from building to building (conference rooms can be difficult to schedule). Opportunity to ask questions of each interviewer. Some were skilled at interviewing and some were poor at it.

Interview Question – In addition to technical questions there is alos behavioral questions asked. One example is "tell me about a time when you had to do something different from what the conventional approach suggested".   View Answer
