    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Microchip Technology in June 2015.

    Interview

    It was a 30 minute phone interview asking about my interest in the semiconductor industry. I was asked what my level of experience was using tools like Labview and Matlab. Did I have background knowledge of semiconductors and Op-amps. Have I had experience using real time data setup for bench testing and analysis or if the data analysis was done post data collection after archiving. How does a comparator work? Why do I have a gap in employment?

    Interview

    The entire hiring process took 3 weeks... you got to take the NCRC. I believe anyone can get through the interviews. The first one was a very casual one that lasted only 20 minutes. The panel interview took 15. I'm not too good with interviews... I skipped a few questions, but I made it.

    I was called in for an interview and went through several different 45-60 minute interviews ranging from technical to experiential. It was great but very intensive. They had me go through HR and I answered very basic HR questions and was explained the benefits package. Then I had 6 interviews with different team members in order to assess my capabilities. Overall the interview lasted about 6 hours.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Microchip Technology.

    Interview

    Extremely long. First interview is 5-6 hours, the second is 3-4 hours. Be prepared. Bring water! Eat before you go! Dress in a suit. Extremely professional cube environment. Group interview and singles with each department. Very friendly people. Not sure they're happy with their jobs because everyone calls it "Micro-cheap" and talks about how they won't invest in any software to help people to their jobs better. Was a red flag for me. I'm not sure why people stay so long (which is what they want) when everyone I met found something negative about the company to tell candidates. It was quite a turn off. Also, if you haven't been at your current job for 5+ years, they won't really take you seriously as a candidate. They're pretty judgmental, so be ready to feel like every little thing you do and say is being scrutinized - because it is.
