    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview followed by an e-mail the next day inviting me for on-site interview. 1hr long presentation with 6 hour long interviews. Good experience overall.
    The first 3 1:1 interviews were mostly the interviewer speaking and telling me about Intel, more than asking questions, they were from a group very close to my background. The last 2-3 interviews were from the group that actually were recruiting, and that wasn't much related to my background!

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a phone call interview. Asked very technical questions throughout the entire phone call. You either knew the answers or did not, they will know whether you are honest or not. Seems very demanding of knowledge even if you are a new college graduate.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Conducted a phone interview with one of the area managers and was recommended for a site interview. At the site interview, I gave a one hour thesis research presentation and met with a few process engineers in the morning. I went to lunch with a few of the process engineers, which was a great time to ask questions and was relatively low stress. In the afternoon I met with a few of the area managers.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Applied from career fair. Took 1 week to get interview. They contacted via email and set date and time for one hour of interview. Questions were from three areas only. 1) C (2) Operating system (3) Computer architecture. Operating system and computer architecture questions were easy, but not C.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions regrading C were difficult as they wanted for operating system debugging. So you need to know all about C and it's good if you read any C book to get idea about some detail orientated questions.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Engineer from Intel's Lithography group gave a presentation at the school, and selected 10 students for an interview the next day. It was a 40 min interview with a mix of both technical and behavioral questions. One behavioral question was "Can you handle stress? Give an example."
    Few were selected for an onsite interview at Portland. The onsite interview lasted whole day - 9 in morning to 4 in evening. The day started with the manager of Lithography group giving a short tour of Intel and describing the hiring process. Then, I gave a one hour presentation based on my PhD research. Lots of questions were asked by the audience during the time. Following that, I had 40 min one-on-one interviews with 5 managers in the Lithography group. All managers picked up on my research fairly quickly and asked probing questions testing the depth of my knowledge. I faced only one behavioral question - how do you handle conflict?
    The lunch was with two new-hires in the lithography group. The purpose was to get a perspective from recent joinees.

    Interview Questions
    • - Most questions were technical in nature, and were based on my PhD research
      - Can you handle stress? Give example
      - How do you handle conflict?

    Basic electronics test given. Two people interviewed me, and they were very respectful and nice. Basically, the test was the hard part of the interview process. The one:one interview was laid back and very easy.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I was connected to the finance intern recruiter through the career counselor at my university. I was quickly set-up for a face-to-face interview with 2 different recruiters. I do not have a finance background but was interested in pursuing a finance career and learning more through this internship. Unfortunately, they were not looking for someone who they can train and develop, but rather a person who already has the skills and knowledge.
