I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Mentor Graphics in June 2008.
Interview Details – I knew the person that was hiring and she was pretty sure she wanted to hire me, so the interviews were a bit of a formality. I did 2 interviews, both pretty standard and routine. Mentor is big, global company, but outside of headquarters things are relatively relaxed, and that's how the interviews felt.
Interview Question – Unfortunately I don't recall the interview questions that were asked. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Fairly straightforward. There wasn't really any room to negotiate on salary.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Mentor Graphics in January 2009.
Interview Details – Advertised position was for marketing. But they were looking for the best R&D, who can go toe-to-toe with the best of R&D engineers, and the best sales person. There was no clear focus for what they are looking for. From phone screening to the first group interview it took less than a week. Then the process slowed down. The next interviewer just delayed for more than 3 weeks with one reason or the other. Then the hiring manager never responded and by the time he responded, it was already 8-10 weeks. The interview process was fairly unprofessional, even though the questions were fairly easy.
