Interview Details – New college graduate full time. Basically the on-campus interview was one on one. I didn't know what job I was interviewing for until I got there (EE major). Won't give the specific title but it wasn't "hardcore" EE like analog or component design. Went over the resume a bit...had to do a few simple code snippets. There was one minimally technical EE related question. I was surprised...reading other interview reviews I studied beforehand expecting a really hard question. Then I was told to apply to an online listing for the position the next day and had to go through an online background check afterwards. Then there was a phone interview with the original one on one guy and another guy in the group. Largely behavioral type stuff like "describe a time when..." Then they made an offer. All of this happened in one week starting Monday ending Friday.
Negotiation Details – It really depends on how badly the hiring manager wants you. College grads don't have much flexibility no matter the company. The offer they give is VERY generous when you factor in relocation (>$7.5k depending on distance and other stuff) and 401k matching (6%) and the two yearly bonuses (about 7% of base salary). Base salary alone is fair but nothing to write home about...few hundred higher than I had from another offer with a different company.

Interview Details – Phone interview - 20 minutes. On site interview - 5 hours. Generally a very positive and interesting interview. I was asked a bunch of harmless questions that seemingly had no answer - may have been geared to see how you think. These were intermingled with random unrelated technical questions. One or two of the interviewers had some attitude - but I did not react to it.

Interview Details – Stupid questions. Programming if else statement. Digital design even more stupid than the one before. XOR truth table. Represent a decimal number in octal format. Interviewer complaining that they hire all these people and there is nothing for them to do once they come in. People interviewing you don't like you cannot stand you and like wise you cannot stand them but you keep your mouth shut if you want the job. You guessed in my group they were all Indiands looking like cows going to a slaughter house.
Negotiation Details – No negotiation take it or leave it.
