    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Intel Corporation in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    Interview came about through personal contact. Started with phone interviews with hiring manager and team members. Some group interviews. I actually interviewed for two positions within Intel at the same time, by chance. The most important thing about Intel is that they believe an employee or candidate will be able to change job descriptions within a certain range of fields. This leads to better opportunities for the candidate and for the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Not too many difficult questions. Most challenging questions came from potential peers, trying to understand how I would fit with the team.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not too much room for negotiation. Advise that candidates talk to friends within Intel to better understand Grade structure, salary, and bonus target system.

    Software Systems Quality Assurance Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    This was my second interview with Intel and it was after I had the phone interview. This was a face-to-face interview with 4 people (members of the group which I was going to work with). They mostly asked programming questions. Mostly basic and fundamental stuff (in C) like pointer and the difference between '*' and '&'; call by value or call by reference; Array lists and loops were also among their questions. One of them reviewed my resume carefully and came from top to the bottom and asked questions in all the sections and where it was necessary. About my projects and work experiences.
    I couldn't answer most of the programming questions because I am not a professional programmer and it has been years since I did some coding.
    I'm still waiting for their answer!
