    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at MediaTek in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Submitted the resume on the website. Got email after about 1 month.
    The interview was at Taiwan but I was at U.S so we had a phone interview.

    Two people were interviewing with me. They asked very detail part about my project, which is wireless network simulation. No other technical questions involved.
    The interview also talked about the major tasks you may need to do if admitted.
    They are the department doing research and simulation in 4G networks.

    I thought I answered pretty well, but however I had not been contacted after 3 weeks.
    And then I emailed the person and after 1 day I got the reject...

    Interview Questions
    • Asked about the project to very detail. They will discuss and even find out something you can improve. Brilliant.   Answer Question

The interview took about 45 minutes. It wasn't very tough interview.

    Hardware Engineering Contract Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Woburn, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Woburn, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at MediaTek in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview was not well organized, I just met with the manager hiring for the position and he couldn't find his list of questions to ask. When he did, he just had two questions, both technical problems he wanted me to solve.

    Interview Questions
    • He had a diagram of a simple CPU with instruction memory and data memory, and a number of instructions in the instruction memory. He said there was a bug in one of the interconnects, either one of the pins is hooked up wrong, tied to 1, tied to 0, etc. He had me go through and debug by stepping through each instruction to find out where the problem was.   View Answer

    Graphics Engine Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)
    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at MediaTek in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring manager was decent and gave me a nice overview of the company and most importantly the graphics team he is supervising. Phone screening, followed-up by a 4-piece coding test

    Interview Questions
    • The second part was about a "different" address book for a "novel" graphical app design
      They are looking for innovative thinking, clearly communicated although their description is vague and they didn't take the time to constrain the problem.

      Judge for yourself:
      Present an overview, as if to a marketing manager
      The requirement is to come up with an innovative ‘contacts’ app, visually different to the ordinary ‘flat list’
      - If the functionality is innovative too, so much the better
      - No constraints...

    Interview Details

    lots of professional question, especially on our thesis or dissertation. Be sure that you familiar with every detail about your presentation. Also, some interviewer likes to ask basic question, which we take it for granted or never think it deeply. All in all, the fundamental skill and theory of circuit design are the key to pass the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • sometimes, they would ask about the real implementation issue which we never thought about it in school, but it is fine for whom just graduated interviewee.   Answer Question
