    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Intel Corporation in February 2007.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer asked a series of questions, some which related to the job, others that seemed a bit odd. One question that struck me as odd, and maybe it was the wording, was to name a time when I had to use library research. Now, I am in a department in school that relies on peer-reviewed journals and such to do most of my research, most of which can be found in online databases. It was probably nerves, but the word "library" itself made me think I needed to talk about in-library experience, which I had very little of because of my school's awesome databases of online resources. My answer could have been stronger.

    Also, the interviewer asked me what group within the division I was interviewing for I would prefer, but none of those groups were mentioned online, and the interviewer kind of seemed unwilling to explain what each group did, despite names that were very vague as to what their purpose might be.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Intel Corporation in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    Met with 4 engineers and the manager of the team. The entire day took roughly 5 hrs to go through (1hr each, with an interview conducted over lunch). The 4 engineers all asked technical questions about layout, but somewhat basic and easy to pass for someone with the right background.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Intel Corporation in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Phone screened for about 45 minutes with a follow up onsite interview. The interview consisted of 7 one-on-one interviews. It seemed as if there was not coordination as many of the interviewers asked the same question and many asked questions outside of my domain experience (which I was explicit about going into the interview).
