Software Engineer Intern Interview

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Intel Corporation.

Interview Details

One phone interview. The interviewer had a fairly thick Indian accent (which was to be expected). She asked me a few C/C++-based questions (difference between malloc and calloc, etc). Then she asked how to swap the values in two registers without using a third register. I would just study basic interviewing questions. Not too bad.

    I applied online – interviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I got a mail directly from the project manager saying that there is a position open on his team as a software engineer intern and would like to interview me for the same. In the interview he asked me questions related to C programming, object oriented programming and RTOS. I felt the question were very specific and closely related to the position.

    Interview Questions
    • It was a telephonic interview and he asked me to write a small code and read it. The programming question was how will you identify whether a system is little endian or big endian? write a code for that.   Answer Question

    interviewed at Intel Corporation in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring manager set up a phone interview. The position was for testing. So, a lot of questions on types of testing, differences between them, realtime test cases, my experience and issues faced with testing etc... were asked. Then, a very few technical (very basic) C++ questions were asked. The interview was very simple.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions were very basic and totally answerable if you are strong on the basics.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume online and was called by the end of the day by one of the members in the intern department. He said they were on a time crunch and has six candidates left to choose from, but my resume appeared better than others and he was wondering if I had time to interview before the end of the day. Luckily I only had one more class for the day, and accepted.

    The "most difficult" question I was asked (probably because I'm a freshman) was given an array of 100 numbers in order (ie 1,2,3...,99,100) with 99 unique values and 1 duplicate value, how would I find the duplicate? I answered BST and then traverse the left or right child depending on what the root node was. He then asked me the big-Oh of it which is logn. I got a call from the original contact at Intel asking me to join them for the summer about twenty minutes after the phone interview.

    Got an email the following week for me to consent to a background check and then the week after that I was formally given an offer.
