Component Design Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bayan Lepas (Malaysia)
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bayan Lepas (Malaysia)
Application Details

I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Intel Corporation in September 2011.

Interview Details

Went through 1 round of interview before I receive my offer.
Seems to me the company was in shortage of workers, and I received my offer after one to two weeks.
They wanted to know what did I study and what I did for my school project, which coincidentally matches their design model.
So, you could say they are always in a lookout for fresh grad with specific skills.
This could get you the job fast, if you are trained in it. Be specific of your projects, and hands-on. Very important.

Interview Questions
  • Was asked to describe what I did do in my internship and projects.
    Well, they doubted I did it, but you have to prove you could remember your work well.

    Phone interview followed by onsite. Mainly technical questions on basics in the subject. Your resume, education, personality all matter ...not just the interview. University rankings are also very important. Some questions were on my resume and projects as well. They chose the topics for on site in which I was comfortable on phone interview. Very friendly and want to have people who can and are willing to learn.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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 Details
    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had a telephone interview and the questions where pretty basic ... what is a State Machine? What is a Latch? How do you construct a TFF our of a DFF? ... I passed the telephone interview and I was asked to come onsite. Everything that I studied pretty much came up in the onsite interview ... however, question began to get harder beyond the scope of what I had either put on my resume, or in the actual application. What I noticed in the paperwork was that although the position that I was applying for was for a Recent College Graduate (RCG), the paperwork showed "experience" ... I had experience as a Apps Engineer, but not as a Component Design Engineer. Given that I was applying for something entirely different (Verilog, Timing related, Synthesis related) and just had graduated from a Masters program, I still was being considered an experience candidate. Make sure that you tell them that if you apply as a RCG, that it should be that way and not as an experienced candidate.

    Interview Questions
    • It was a CPU question at the gate level ... I have never seen this question in either of my Bachelors or Masters level classes. It was not a question about the CPU Architecture to be clear.   Answer Question
    • Please try to be as detailed as possible regarding the technical question, business case, etc.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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

    Interview Questions
    • Was given a verilog code and was asked to guess the function of the module. It was a voltage controlled oscillator.   Answer Question
    • There was a BIG sheet of transistor layout and the interviewer wanted me to figure out the function.   Answer Question
