    Interview Details

    gang interviews. Looking for qualification that you'd already have to be in the group to have. Group seemed to have an undefined charter yet were expecting specifics in employees. Not very well organized, no real strive to impress.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Folsom, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Folsom, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview with many small questions related to computer architecture, operating systems and programming. Then offered onsite interview.

    Onsite interview was with 5 different people. Each kind of tried to cover different topics. Again questions came from computer architecture (i/o, memory hierarchy etc.), operating systems (cache consistency, virtual memory etc.), programming (c,c++,assembly). Last interviewer asked more general questions what would you do if you were in this case, what do you think about future of computers etc.

    Interview Questions
    • Not about being difficult but they kind of tried to focus on and ask about things that I haven't mentioned in my resume or told them on phone interview such as virtualization, assembly programming etc. If you were looking for someone who already have experience with all of those you shouldn't have invited me for onsite. Or at least do not take them into account and look whether I can learn them or not.   Answer Question
