    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter After 1 week, hiring manager contacted me to setup a phone screen in 3 days. Phone screen took about 1 hour, all related to what listed on the resume Got on site right after the phone screen. On site after 10 days, 4 1-1 interviews, interviewers are very friendly and professional. Questions are based on what are listed on the resume, and some other job responsibility for the position, the interviewers can tolerant you have no experience on the requirements of the position, but more importantly, they want to know my ability of solving the problems. And they care more about how deeply I understand my hands on experience. Hope these helps! And good luck to myself and all of you!

    Bluetooth Physical Layer Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The whole on-site interview was disorganized and chaotic. First, I was made to wait over 30 mins in the freezing lobby in mid-Nov before the hiring manager showed up. From that point every interview was delayed. 2 out of 6 interviewers did not show up and apparently there was no prior communication about this. This forced the other interviewers to just sit around and make small talk with me for over an hour. The interviewers that showed up confessed that my experience and education was way different from theirs and hardly asked anything technical. I was surprised given that the Hiring Manager had obviously seen my resume before inviting me.There was really only one technical interview which I thought I did quite well. But after the interviews there was no feedback for a month until I emailed HR who replied back with a curt "thanks but we hired someone else". Overall a very negative experience and one I didn't expect from a respected company like Intel.

    Interview Questions

    • A few basic questions on Digital and wireless communications, estimation theory, random processes etc. Mostly questions based on work I had done before.   Answer Question
