    Interview

    Initial phone interview, followed by face to face meeting with two of the managers. The managers were easygoing and kept the conversation going with questions that were simple enough to answer. Overall, they were pretty informative; they discussed the company and their personal experience working for Maxim. It seemed as though they were interested in me by the end of the interview but later on I was let down.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Maxim Integrated (San Jose, CA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Got 3 phone interviews each at different days and lasted about 45-60min each. Phone interviewers were at different locations. That included the hiring manager also. They were all technical with pen and paper. After 2 weeks got onsite and which was very very hectic as the panel was 10 people each 45 min. Some of the people in panel were very tough to talk to as they sounded discouraging than welcoming. During onsite, I was tested for unexpected skills which were not specified in job description or during phone interviews. Rather I was given wrong confidence that my skillset is exactly what they looking for. Disappointing, to waste sometime.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Maxim Integrated (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    There was a telephonic interview mainly involving discussion on past experience, area of expertise, interest in the position and some behavioral questions like how will you handle a pressure situation etc. next round was an on site interview. It was half a day and involved 4-5 interviews. 4 of them were technical and the last one was meeting with the Managing director of the site which was mostly like a formality. One was a lunch discussion with one of the managers. I was surprised to know that he was going to quiz me with couple of questions on technical stuff during lunch. So be prepared for that. My manager met me at the end of the interview and indirectly told me that I was going to be selected. I was asked to get my medical tests done the same day.

    Interview Questions

    • Several difficult questions on technicalities of operation of several machines. Some worst case scenarios were given and I was asked how I would troubleshoot them.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I negotiated for a 10% increase in base salary. Negotiation was pretty straightforward. I quoted a couple of examples of peers working in similar companies. He said he would think about it and got back after a day with the upped offer.
