Software Engineer Interview
The overall process was smooth and streamless, occurring within the span of a week or so. The interviewers were professional and friendly, and were attentive throughout the duration of the interviews. I was asked multiple questions regarding my personal goals and what I would like to accomplish at Intel. Additionally, I was told that I would have a good amount of flexibility within the team as well as ample resources to bring up my questions or suggestions to higher-ups.

Software Engineer InterviewNo OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Intel Corporation (Folsom, CA).
I got referred by an acquaintance to the Windows OS team at Folsom. The overall interview process was around 3-4 weeks. I had an initial round of phone interview which concentrated on general operating system concepts.
I was invited for an onsite interview at Folsom, CA. It was the worst experience that I have had in an interview. I think that the decision regarding hiring was made well before actually even interviewing me. There were 7 rounds of technical interviews. First round was good with generic discussion about my projects, operating system concepts etc. Second round was by an engineer with no proper communication skills, he was rude, unwilling to hear to my approach to problems. This was supossed to be a x86 coding round when I had no where listed that on my resume.
Most of the rounds were primarily concentrated on computer architecture when I had very limited knowledge on the same. The interviewers seems very inconsiderate of the fact that I was a computer science student and not a CE student.
The lunch interview was a pain, right from the moment we left the meeting room, till we came back the interviewer was constantly asking questions, with very limited time given to even have my food. I was expected to code on paper even the lunch interview round which seemed pretty insane to me.
The worst part was the same team at Hillborough had no CE questions at all that were asked while interviewing the candiates.

I applied through other source. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Intel Corporation.
Have two rounds of behavioral interviews instead of the typical one. First round was more of getting a sense of which department best suits you and then they send you off to another interviewer in that field to ask more behavioral and then more position specific questions.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Intel Corporation in November 2014.
Fairly straight forward process. HR interviews, Google hangout technician interviews, the works. Position and team were interesting but salary could not compete with other offers.
HR is responsive and on time. The overall process is quick and painless.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2014.
I was very impressed that the process moved so fast. No delays. The whole process took a fraction of the time it would take at other big companies. Had two rounds of phone interviews then was called onsite. At the onsite interview I had 7 rounds of interviews, one hour each. The first was with senior manager and focused on behavioral, goals questions and then basic questions from what I had written on my resume. The next 5 were technical. I was tested on C, Java because that was what I said I was most comfortable with. Questions ranged from knowledge of the language e.g questions about how the garbage collector in java works, to coding questions on trees, pointers, recursion, string manipulation, arrays etc. Some interviewers also asked computer architecture questions e.g. caches, superscalar processor design etc... The last meeting was with project manager. Asked few questions concerning whether I liked group members and projects being worked on.
All in all the interviewers were very focused, professional, bright and helpful. It felt more like an interesting intellectual conversation than an interview.

The process takes one day and goes smoothly. Different interviewers focus on different domains, such as programming language, document reading and understanding, team cooperation and others. It is not easy to answer all questions. You need to think fast and give good answers. These interviews are quite smart. The technical questions are well prepared.
