    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Maxim Integrated in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Maxim Integrated in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    First I got a telephone interview. I talked for about 45 minutes. Got a call back a few days later to go in. I spoke with 4 employees including the senior analyst one after the other. It took 4 hours. I was not happy that they told me they would call me no matter what in the next few weeks. I never got a call until I followed up 3-4 times. I found out that I did not get hired. They could have at least called because they said they were going to.
