    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview Details

    The preliminary phone interview was quite simple. Not much of probing questions. My overall impression about the team from the onsite interview was very positive. The requirements for this team were quite strict. My impression was that the main emphasis was on software skills and that was not my main area of expertise. This could have been easily clarified at the phone interview which could have saved both sides the trouble and time.

    The process takes one day and goes smoothly. Different interviewers focus on different domains, such as programming language, document reading and understanding, team cooperation and others. It is not easy to answer all questions. You need to think fast and give good answers. These interviews are quite smart. The technical questions are well prepared.

    Interview Details

    I gave 3 phone call interviews:
    First round:
    Tell me about yourself. Then he asked me to explain one project from my resume. Then he started telling me information about their team and what they do. They were working on NAND Flash tech. Then he asked me about difference between SSD and harddisk., where exactly ssd is used.
    Second round:
    This round was with manager. He repeated same questions. Only different question was:
    Expalin me working of CPU and memory as if you are explaining some dumb person.

    Third round:
    This one was somewhat lengthy almost 45 minutes. First 2 were just 25-30 mins. He started reviewing my skills that I had put on my resume. He spent 10 mins on pipeline, stalling forwarding. Then he asked me setup/hold time questions. Then difference between RISC and CISC. Flip flop vs latch. comb Vs seq. why do we use pmos and nmos in transmission gate?

    This all happened in 4-5 days and they took 2 weeks to gave me decision.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Intel Corporation in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I talked to an Intel recruiter at a career fair for engineers. He seemed interested in interviewing me, and called that night to set one up for the following day. The interview went well and was not too difficult. Questions ranged from state machines and digital logic to simple analog design and CMOS transistors. The interviewer also took time to explain some of the concepts I would be presented with during the internship that I had not yet learned in my classes.

    Less than a week later, I received an email saying that they wanted to bring me on as an intern for the Summer.
