Component Design Engineer Interview

Component Design Engineer
Chandler, AZ

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in June 2010.

Interview Details – All day interview of one hour each with six different people. Each interview covered a different area of engineering including circuit design, logic circuits, computer programming, validation, and testing. Shufflled from room to room for each interview, sometimes from building to building (conference rooms can be difficult to schedule). Opportunity to ask questions of each interviewer. Some were skilled at interviewing and some were poor at it.

Interview Question – In addition to technical questions there is alos behavioral questions asked. One example is "tell me about a time when you had to do something different from what the conventional approach suggested".   View Answer

Software Engineer Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Intel Corporation.

Interview Details – One phone interview. The interviewer had a fairly thick Indian accent (which was to be expected). She asked me a few C/C++-based questions (difference between malloc and calloc, etc). Then she asked how to swap the values in two registers without using a third register. I would just study basic interviewing questions. Not too bad.

Interview Question – Swap values between two registers without using a third register.   View Answer

Manufacturing Technician Interview

Anonymous Employee
Hillsboro, OR

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Intel Corporation in September 2010.

Interview Details – Some basic technical questions, how does a transistor work, how does a vacuum system work, etc. followed by behavior questions, things like "Tell me about a time you had a conflict with another employee, and tell me what you did to resolve it"

Interview Question – Behavior questions tend to be the toughest. They want to hear specific examples, not just general things like "I try to avoid conflict with my co-workers", etc. They will press you for specific examples, so be specific.   Answer Question

Intern Interview

Intern
Chandler, AZ

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.
