I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Intel Corporation in February 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online during the beginning of December 2013. Was contacted in early 2014 for a 20 minute phone interview. This consisted of behavioral questions, as well as asking about research background/resume info. Was invited for an onsite interview a few weeks later. Onsite interview consisted of casual discussion of different technologies used, whiteboard coding and discussion of team culture. Know your resume and know your CS basics (linked lists, OOP, memory allocation)

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Very generous hourly rate, plus eligible for full benefits as intern. Best internship compensation I was offered by a long shot.

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Intel Corporation in January 2014.

Interview Details – The hiring manager received my resume from Intel's application database. I received a request for a phone interview date and time via email. The phone interview consisted of them explaining the position, asking me behavioral questions, asking me about my resume, then finally, asking about any questions I may have.

At the end of the interview, they said they will hand my interview to their team and if anyone had any questions, they would call; however, they felt like the interview went so well that if no other team member objects, they would offer me the position. Within a week I received the request of a background check and the offer.

Mind you, I researched the group beforehand and had questions ready to ask, and asked questions based on what the manager informed me about the position.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself?
Why do you want to work for Intel?
What are your career goals within Intel (fellow or manager route)?
What is your biggest strength and weakness?

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in December 2011.

Interview Details – It is pretty easy. Usually an hour phone screen. But some teams might require onsite. Must know Comp Arch basics, certain protocols like PCIe and Ethernet and USB and some more. Good programing skills definitely help. Knowing C,C++ Verilog, System Verilog concepts,PERL and basic OOPs concept will get you a job for sure. Besides that, you learn everything on the job.

Interview Question – Everything was pretty general. But do google puzzles they ask. Otherwise be thorough with what you have on the resume and you should be fine.   Answer Question
