Engineer Interview

Engineer
Longmont, CO

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at LSI in January 2012.

Interview Details – It started with an on campus interview with the hiring manager. This was followed a few weeks later by an interview with other team members. Overall the questions were wide in range and tended to be on the technical side. I really thought it was a good company with a great work environment. However, they stressed that I must have the ability to work about 50 hours per week.

Interview Question – Describe some problems associated with Digital Signal Processing.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I received a better offer from a different company.

Engineering Interview

Engineering
Colorado Springs, CO

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at LSI in March 2011.

Interview Details – Was interviewed by a variety of people from different disciplines. Several of the interviewers asked vague questions where I had to give multiple answers until I give the exact answer they wanted. One of the interviewers said I was close to the correct answer, but it was something close to what I said. He was wrong. I didn't tell him that because he seemed full of himself.

One area's work was very impressive.
