Product Development Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Albuquerque, NM

Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Intel Corporation in November 2012.

Interview Details

Interview consisted of a phone screen. I had interned before so not sure if that was why it was easier. They asked me simple V=IR questions, some C++ easy question trying to figure out what a particular function did, and I think identifying a logic gate's function (it was an AND gate). Also they asked some unix command - what does the following command do (it was the find command with a list of arguments)

Interview Questions

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 6 months - interviewed at Intel Corporation in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Frequently has hiring freezes. The frequency and duration has increased in the last 5 to 8 years. Don't expect hiring to happen quickly. Company likes to promote and grow from within, albeit most engineers are more likely to be silo'd into the same position for >3 years.

    Interview Questions
    • College Rush candidates should prepare for the gauntlet of tests. Often abstract problem solving questions are particularly used and are tough. For example... you are standing in a boat holding a rock. You throw the rock into the water. Does the boat sit higher or lower in the water.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There really isn't much of a negotiation. They have a paint-by-the-numbers formula for pay and benefits. Based mostly on years of experience, degree level. If you're experienced, but don't have a degree you're lucky to get the job. And if you didn't go to a big-name college don't expect the degree you have to count for too much towards starting salary and bonus target.

    Interview Details

    Received a call from a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Apple. Was contacted by a recruiter. He arranged for a 1 hour phone interview with a hiring manager. After that I was invited to the corporate campus for an interview consisting of 8 30-minute long interviews with various engineers and managers. A week after the interview, I was informed that they had selected another candidate, which I do appreciate. I was also given feedback by the recruiter.

    Interview Questions
    • Part of the problem with Intel's interview style is that you tend to get asked the same questions over and over by different people who didn't have a chance to hear you answer previously. Also 30 minutes per person isn't really enough time to get to know one another   Answer Question
