    Senior Yield Enhancement Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Microchip Technology in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted the day after I applied by email to request a phone interview later that week. The phone interview question were about half technical and half experiential, such as, "Describe a time when..." Two days passed before I was called in for a panel of interviews, lasting from 9 am to 3 pm. The first interviewer was from HR, and the other 6 were engineers. Most of the technical questions were basic. Three of them asked me to draw a cross-sectional diagram of a MOSFET of various types.

    One interviewer asked very detailed questions regarding device physics and system characterization. I recommend studying up on different memory device operations, knowledge gained from C-V plots after burn-in, and how different problems with oxides may be detected.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewer showed me a hand drawing of a memory element containing a control gate and a floating gate and asked me to describe how such a device would operate.   View Answer

    Production Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gresham, OR
    Anonymous Employee in Gresham, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Microchip Technology in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    You must complete three steps before your application will be considered and before you can get an actual interview:

    1. A complete, updated registration with WorkSource Oregon.
    2. A National Career Readiness Certification (NCRC) minimum Bronze Level.
    3. An Online Integrity Survey.

    I made it all the way to a face-to-face interview, but was rejected by corporate as a possible candidate due to white collar felony record. Unfortunately for me, not a felon-tolerant employer. The HR manager wanted to hire me, but again, corporate said no.

    In general, my impression is that if you make it all the way to a face-to-face interview you've got the job, unless you botch the interview or have a criminal record. Moral of the story: Don't screw up!

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Microchip Technology.

    Interview Details

    Typical to have initial phone screen followed by in-house interview with 4 to 6 peers. Interviewers will be from various disciplines and possibly from other departments with same discipline as the interview candidate. Some interviewers ask technical questions while other interviews rely merely on what is on the resume. HR will always low ball so be ready to decline. HR uses the typical pressure tactic that you must make a decision in 3 days.
