    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Mentor Graphics in February 2015.

    Interview

    Good and the interviewer was friendly, it was first a HR round followed by technical and then there was no response or follow up. Overall, was a good experience. The phone screen lasted for about 50 mins but was scheduled for 30 mins

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Mentor Graphics (Wilsonville, OR) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview for marketing business analyst though. Firstly, they changed the job description and the coordinator sent me a JD which I hadn't even applied for! I reached back to them on this and it was corrected. The interview was very short- They were looking for an IT based skill set which was not described in the JD and was a clear mismatch. Overall a very very unplanned, unorganized disappointing process.

    Interview

    I was contacted about the opportunity after they selected my resume from a uni career fair. We communicated via email about the position before a phone interview. A week after the phone interview, I was invited on-site for multiple interviews and to give a technical presentation. A very positive experience and it paid off as it has paved the way for further engineering roles within the company.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Mentor Graphics in January 2014.

    Interview

    The first round was a telephonic interview taken by two people. Couple of questions on my resume and others were about what interested me the most about the position, why the company etc. I was asked to interview for another round the next week. I presented an academic project to around 4-5 people over the internet. Again was asked questions on my resume and behavioral questions. Haven't heard back from them. It has been more than a month.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any in particular but they did grill me about my resume a lot!   Answer Question

    First interview with HR about English proficiency then with several senior engineer and manager. Tests might be given for coding proficiency. Previous employer or relative experience helps a lot. And of course referral will help a lot.
