    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Marvell Technology in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Online applications and call within 2-4 weeks. Strange thing manager called directly without scheduling an interview and started asking all sorts of questions. He was so impressed that towards the end he said the next round might be bypassed and HR might send the on-site invitation. Till date, I haven't heard back from them neither the HR nor the manager who called.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Marvell Technology.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was straightforward. Phone interview followed by onsite with 6 1:1: interviews.

    All basic design question from VLSI, datapath design and bus architectures.

    The interview went well, but they have a simple policy of not responding to any emails under any pretext. I am under the assumption that I was not selected due to their strong inkling to be completely ignorant to my emails.

    At this point I have no regard for a company that treats candidates so poorly; it just shows the amount of respect (or lack of) that they have for people in general.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Marvell Technology in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    They have an urgent need for people, so the whole process went very fast. I was contacted by the HR, then a short phone chat with the team manager, followed by a full-day on-site interview the week after. During the on-site interview, I met 7 or 8 people throughout the day and had lunch with the manager in their canteen. All interviews included brief discussion of my qualification and technical questions.
