Process Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied online and interviewed at Micron Technology.
Interview Details – They generally asked a couple of introductory questions, then transitioned to technical questions
Introductory questions involved : Open to relocation, Why interested in this position, very conventional
Technical Questions included: Why is salt not allowed in cleanroom, how does SEM work, questions about SPC, Six Sigma, process control charts, Short channel effects in MOSFETS.
Interview Question – I had trouble with most of the statistical process control questions, since I've had no prior experience. I frankly did not expect those questions Answer Question
Design Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Micron Technology in February 2011.
Interview Details – Ask too many technical questions that I don't know in the areas that are not related in the sense that to test your general knowledge and smartness and creative thinking skills. Also they do ask how you solve the problem and how you approach to solve the problem.

Interview Details – I was called for an initial interview. Later that same day I got an email from them wanting additional information so they could fly me out the next week for an onsite interview.
Interview Question – Create a XOR gate with only 4 NAND gates Answer Question
Product Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Micron Technology in November 2010.
Interview Details – I was interviewed over the phone by the hiring manager, then asked to come in and talk to about 5 different people. Oddly I had lunch with another candidate along with the hiring manager (a bit weird). I was offered a job within a week. Following this process and my acceptance of the job, the company underwent significant organizational changes including being purchased (Numonyx) in 2011. I have since left the company.

Negotiation Details – Negotiated with their recruiter but felt the salary they eventually offered was fair so I took it.
Human Resources Intern Interview (Neutral Experience)

Manufacturing Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)

Intern SSD Product Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Micron Technology in March 2014.
Interview Details – Submitted application through their website, sent copy to a friend who works there and he told me it should be 2 pages and highlight the projects I had worked on in school (i.e. special projects, class projects, etc...). So I redrafted my resume as my friend suggested and he turned it in to Human Resources for me. a couple weeks later I was notified by email I would be having a phone interview. I studied up on digital logic, microelectronics and did a little research on NAND Flash memory technology prior to the interview. Tne interviewer never once had to ask me questions like why I wanted to work at Micron, why I would be a good fit there, how and when I had shown initiative in the past, or any of the usual interview questions of that type because I took every opportunity to sell myself by telling the interviewer these things without being prompted. The only technical questions I was asked where specific to NAND Flash memory, the thing I spent the least time studying, but I was able to reason out answers to questions I did not really know the answers to and never once said, 'I don't know'. I didn't really feel the interview went as well as it could have, but I guess I did alright because two weeks later I got an offer letter and will work 13 weeks this summer.
Interview Question – Why does a NAND memory cell have a finite number of write/erase cycles? View Answer
Negotiation Details – No negotiation, they send you an offer letter that says what the wage is that they are offering, and since that seemed pretty generous for a Junior in college, and they were offering $600/month housing, I didn't attempt to negotiate further.
Director Design Engineering Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Micron Technology
Interview Details – Very informal interview process. I was asked into a conference room. I spoke to 3 interviewers for 45 minutes each. After that I was introduced to the Vice President of the group. He talked to me at length about my past experience and specifically about a project I had done in the past. he told me what project he had in mind and solicited ideas around his project idea. he asked me if I would be interested in heading up the program he had in mind, to which I replied in the affirmative.
Interview Question – Why don't you do your own company. Answer Question
Database Design Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Micron Technology in April 2014.
Interview Details – Applied online. Took 4+weeks received a phone call from HR. Had initial screening with HR about previous experience, etc. Then talked with the hiring manager via phone and set up a time to come do onsite interview. They paid to fly myself and my fiance to Boise for the interview. Paid rental car, hotel, and expenses up to $100. Plus up to $50 for food.
Showed up early for interview. Waited about 30 min until the HR person came down, took me to a conference room. First person to interview came in 5 minutes later. Talked about the job, then the asked generic questions. Followed by 4 more interviews. Took me to lunch which turned out to be another interview. After lunch had another interview. That was the last interview. Then got passed off to another person who gave me a tour and was told it was over. Weird ending, basically just said we will get in touch with you, probably not a good sign.
Many technical questions. Included cross section of transistor, transistor operations, transistor IV curves, transistor transfer curves. Was asked about NAND operation. Asked about simple RC circuits, how to reduce etc.
Develop psuecode to change Farenheit to Celsius.
Use equation, develop truth table, put into gates. Reduce it, put it into NAND.
Tapeout process, use of reticles, cadence questions, etc.
