    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online – 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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Microchip Technology (Gresham, OR) in January 2015.

    Interview

    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!

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    Typical low ball by HR and then follow up call my hiring manager Toyota things worked out. Then the counter offer.
