Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation in January 2015.

Interview

First got an email asking to submit my updated resume(I had submitted it at Grace Hopper maybe 3 or 4 months before), then got a phone call, and was asked about my resume. Asked some standard behavioral questions, and then also asked a couple technical questions. Nothing too challenging. Was told I would get a call back from the manager to interview me, but the next call I got was from the same hiring person, offering me a job!

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation (Fort Collins, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Went through three interviews: one on university campus, a phone interview, then on site. The on site interview was broken into five major sections each with a different engineer: computer architecture, logic, validation, software, and general personality questions. Individual questions were simple and straight forward, but the interview covered a very wide breadth of topics.
