    Applications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chandler, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chandler, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Microchip Technology in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was approached by a headhunter through Monster. Pretty standard interview process: aced the phone screen, then was flown in to interview.

    Was pretty much a gauntlet type of interview, similar to the one stated on Feb 18, 2014. I asked the manager where he wanted to take the project he had pegged for me. He said he was hoping I'd know! So basically I'd be doing his job, and paid much less for it. Bad sign right there!

    That, and when they tried to bait me into talking bad about a former employer of mine, was when my brain switched off, and waited for the end to come. HR also let me know that just because it's 40% cheaper to live there, that it's enough justification to try and lowball me by that much.

    With recent discriminatory legislation being passed in AZ, I'd stay away from working in this state, and glad they passed me over, cause I'd have turned them down anyways.

    Senior Business Analyst/Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chandler, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chandler, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Microchip Technology in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone screen directly with the hiring manager, bypassing the customary HR pre-screen. Good rapport established with hiring manager, and was invited for a face-to-face interview.

    The face-to-face interview included some pre-work to complete the online application that is remarkably similar to the online form you have to fill out with their hiring process vendor in order to submit your resume. But, you gotta do what you gotta do. It is quite time-consuming because you have to copy/paste information that is on your resume into their form for each prior job that you have had.

    Initial interview was a fairly brief encounter with what seemed to be an overworked HR person. It involved basically submitting the paper application.

    2nd interview was with CIO & hiring manager. 3rd interview with with a peer manager to the hiring manager. 4th "interview" was a lunch discussion with the hiring manager. Some inappropriate questions were subtly asked regarding family & non-work life. The 5th step was a paper test with technical questions related to the job. The 6th interview was a panel interview with a large panel of about 10-12 panelists who would be co-workers. The 7th and final part of the interview was an introduction to a take-home assignment to prepare a proposal for a sample scenario.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the questions on the written test was non-technical, but a puzzle that required you to determine a seating chart of a group of people, based on a lengthy description of requirements.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chandler, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Microchip Technology in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I got an email asking me if I am available for internship and asked for convenient dates for interview. Once I replied them, they sent me an email calling for an interview in their Chandler location.

    First, I was asked a few basic questions by the HR. This was followed by an interview with a project manager.

    The first round with the manager involved questions from my resume. Nothing involving technical knowledge.

    The next one was a technical interview. It involved question from OOPS / JAVA / C++ and some logical puzzles.

    The third round was another technical interview where I was asked to write code on whiteboard. The question was not very tough though.

    I was given the offer the very next day(I got a call from HR, followed by an email with the offer letter).
