    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Maxim Integrated.

    Interview Details

    After receiving my resume through a common contact, I was requested for an interview from Maxim Integrated. I drove to Phoenix area for the interview.

    The process began with a tour of the facility, and a demonstration of the equipment I would work with (coding, circuit interface design, test microchips for cell phones). Afterwards, I interviewed with 4 people, each were Electrical Engineers. 3 were fellow workers, 1 was manager.

    Questions:
    -Given a schematic of a Boost Converter, explain its operation for various switch positions.
    -Talked through methods to mitigate test lead resistance when measuring small currents.
    -What is your favorite electrical component?

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Maxim Integrated in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process started out with the manager of the test-team over the phone for about 30 minutes. I was then called in for the usual 8-hour in-person interview. It started out in a conference room with about 8 people randomly shouting out questions about my background. Afterward, I had a 1:1 with each person throughout the rest of the day. They each asked very technical questions (that I had not seen since college), and I also noticed - like another reviewer said - that the younger people were more harsh in their questions than the older people.

    Eight days later, I received an e-mail that stated only this:
    "Thank you for taking time last week to talk to me and my group. After careful consideration, I am unable to extend an offer of employment."

    I have since then responded to the e-mail, asking for tips/improvements for my next interview; however, I still have not heard back. It's very disappointing to waste 9 hours out of my day for a one-line e-mail.

    Interview Questions
    • Various electrical engineering questions: op-amps, Fourier Transforms, complex resistor simplifications, Thevenin equivalents   Answer Question

    Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dasmariñas, Province of Cavite (Philippines)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Maxim Integrated.

    Interview Details

    The interview is very technical. For a fresh grad, expect a written exam. Questions are more of problem solving. Ohms Law, R, C, Diodes, transistors, opamp ckt analysis. Expect the interviewer to ask questions from the exam, they might tweak some of them by changing components and you need to explain how will the ckt behave.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing much. If you have strong fundamentals on electronics analog/mixed signal you'll be fine.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As a fresh grad back then, I accepted the offer. They gave me some stock options. But now, I think they do not offer anymore.
