ASIC Design Engineer Interview

ASIC Design Engineer
Santa Clara, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed 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.
