Interview Details – 2 phone calls. Both behavioral. the 1st call takes about 30-40 minutes, the 2nd takes about 45 - 1hr. A phone call a week over a two week span. They will ask about experience leading projects, leadership, extracurriculars, etc. and then will shock you with two technical questions near the end.

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in November 2013.
Interview Details – My first round of interviews on my schools campus went very well, that got me a second round interview on Intel's campus. Looking back I feel like I was much more confident with that interview then on Intel's campus. My interviews on Intel's campus did not go so well. Both times I was notified very quickly about my results (within days). When I was not hired I was actually able to speak to an Intel HR employee for about 30 minutes and get some valuable feedback about how my interview went.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in March 2013.
Interview Details – A recruiter showed up at my university asking for PhD's in the physical sciences. He was interested in understanding the projects I owned and especially how i worked with instrumentation as a Chemistry student. He offered me an on-site interview several weeks later. I was flown to Portland in the evening and was told I would meet with several managers 1:1 and also have a presentation of my dissertation to the group of managers. The 1:1 were typical interviews with each manager interested in different parts of my resume. There were very few technical questions; mostly soft-skills. i was taken to Lunch by two newer engineers and asked a boatload of questions based from my reading of this website. Two weeks later they emailed me that I would be offered a position over the phone. I accepted.
Interview Question – One manager presented a dilemma with an instrument and asked how I would go about solving it. I don't think he expected me to know the answer but to see how I think. The bad part is he was very negative and somewhat condescending throughout. But after he seemed very pleased and tried to talk me up like I had the job. A friend of mine got the same guy and question and felt like he fell apart and lost the job. I think he was trying to frustrate me and see how I would react. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was phoned and given a detailed explanation of the salray/bonus/benefits package and emailed the same the next day. I think they wanted me to tell them within two weeks.

Overall 8 months in I feel I'm overpaid.
