Senior Process Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Chandler, AZ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Intel Corporation in March 2012.

Interview Details – I submitted my resume in the system, and I got a phone interview with an engineering in 30 minutes regarding my research. After I passed a phone interview, I got on-site interview. There are three other candidates with different engineering backgrounds. We took turns to interview with 4 team members and finally got an interview with a hiring manager. After all interviews were done, and we presented our research to the team members. It was a day-long process.

Interview Question – Difficult questions were coming from the current technical issues they had been experiencing in the process. Basically, how can we dispose polymer in the packaging process when certain sets of devices and conditions were given? The velocity of a dispenser and the amount of polymer are key outcome while varying temperature, viscosity, and configurations of polymer. You have to know about the relationship between viscosity and force and the characteristics of polymer. Another important thing that you should remember is how temperature is affecting the shear force of polymer. There are rare happenings of brimming over the die package specification. You should know about why it is happening, how you can handle it, and what might be the solution techniques at least in a brief format.   Answer Question

Intern - Finance Interview

Anonymous Employee
Chandler, AZ

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Intel Corporation in February 2011.

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. Also, its okay if you feel like your interviewer doesn't like you.. as long as you feel you didn't mess anything up and stay composed, you'll be fine. Also, they schedule the two interviews with you beforehand, and after the first interview, they don't tell you if they still want to speak with you. You have to take it upon yourself that they will honor that date. And if you did well in your first interview, they will

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 Interview

Software Engineer
Chandler, AZ

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in January 2011.

Interview Details – I was called after leaving my resume with them at a job fair. Never thought of Intel as a software company, but they sought me out and after a frank phone call with my future boss, was given a plane ticket to visit in person. Loved the area and they focused on my general knowledge and personality on a series of 1:1 interviews, very low key and comfortable. Was given an offer a few days after.

Interview Question – Most difficult problem you have encountered and how you worked to overcome it? Also, when have you done this in a group setting?   Answer Question

Process Engineer
Phoenix, AZ

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Intel Corporation.

Technical questions were not difficult, covered simple semiconductor physics and materials science questions. Behavioral questions were standard and could be looked up online ahead of time.

Interview Question – Technical question:

When you are working on process control what are the names for the important limits?

Behavioral question:

Describe how you have handled conflict with a peer in the past.
