I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation.
Interview Details –
I received an email from the hiring manager directly inquiring about if I am still looking for employment and whether I could schedule a phone interview. Phone interview was set for about a week later and covered basic questions about my graduate project and a few behavioral questions also. A few days later I was emailed to schedule an on-site interview for around a week later (it was very short notice) but luckily I could be flexible.
The on-site interview consisted of three 2:1 interviews and three 1:1 interviews going over both technical and behavioral questions, but in my case it was mostly technical questions because I am a Master's EE student. I also was not required to give a presentation since I was not a Ph.D. candidate. The technical questions all came from my resume, so as long as you are confident with what is on your resume you will be fine. A large majority of the behavioral questions I was asked I actually had prepped for thanks to this website, so it was not too difficult to come up with examples. They focus heavily on your knowledge of equipment that you have used and their operating principles/theories so be very prepared for that.
Interview Question –
Please note all of these questions corresponded to different projects from my resume and no question (in my opinion) came out of left field
-Describe the process flow of a MEMS pressure sensor
-Draw the diagram of a SEM
-Explain how ebeam evaporation deposition works along with a diagram
-Explain the operating theory of a Mass Flow Controller Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Able to work with starting date, salary is non-negotiable.

Interview Details –
I met a recruiter on campus and did an interview the very next day. I was asked to come for an onsite interview and I went a couple months later.
The onsite interview was from 8:30am-6:30pm. I did an hour long presentation on my research and then I met with 10 people back to back for 30-45 min each. It was a mix of managers and peers. They mainly asked questions about my research and my thought process. I also got the typical behavioral questions, but those only came from one person and she had a list of questions to ask, maybe from HR. I left the interview feeling very good about it. I hadn't gotten stumped on any questions and was able to maintain a positive demeanor throughout the very long day. I thought I'd for sure get an offer, but I didn't. Not sure what they're looking for.

The questions that came up most often were: how well do you work with others in a team, and describe your trouble shooting approach to malfunctioning equipment.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Intel Corporation in May 2013.
Interview Details –
Gave resume to a recruiter at a university job fair. A couple of weeks later got a phone call asking basic questions about availability and interest in the position. They flew me out and paid for accommodations and food for 3 day trip.
Interview started at ~9am and a couple of 1 on 1 personal interviews with managers. They discussed the position, requirements, and company ideals/motto/goal/functionings. Next came a 1 hr presentation on my university work which was attended by a small group which then took me out to lunch were I could ask questions about what the day to day job was like. This was followed by more one on one interviews with higher managers discussing any clarifications to questions that had arise through the process.
Following the interview, I was allowed to explore the city with my extra time to get a feel for the area.
Within a few days, I received an email stating that they wouldn't make me an offer for the position.
Interview Question – No technical questions asked during the interview only behavioral and situational questions. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in May 2013.
Interview Details –
My resume was pulled from Intel's database and I was initially screened via phone by my to-be manager. First interview was very simple; covered demographic information, some of my MS research and projects, and one or two questions about how the tools we use work (materials characterization position).
Had a second phone interview a week later with another group member who will most likely be training me. This covered some of my work again, but focused more on what the position will be like and our group's role in the overall process. This almost seemed like an informative phone call.
About a week later I was contacted to schedule an on-site interview, which happened the next week (2 weeks after the second phone interview). The folks at Intel were aware that I was taking time out of my vacation to interview, so they booked me a quick trip (in Sunday, out Monday evening). Everything was completely covered, and I think I actually made money with the per diem.
The interviews were 6 30 minute meetings with the individual group members, including my several managers, our group leader, and one of the newer guys. No really difficult technical questions; mostly just asking about my research and some basic imaging questions. Ate lunch with them afterwards and then got a quick tour of the facility before heading to the airport.
Received my offer within a week of the on-site interview (my hiring manager was very prompt, which is definitely not the norm).
Interview Question – There was no real difficult question. This interview seemed a bit odd as it was more of a 'get to know me' conversation than a formal interview. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – As a MS student straight out of grad school I don't have any negotiating leeway. The offer was about what I was expecting and definitely within the average for my experience/degrees.
