Application

I applied online – interviewed at Micron Technology.

Interview

There were three rounds of phone interview for total and no on-site interview for intern position. The first one was just some easy HR questions, and the later two asked about basic semiconductor questions, including CMOS IV, fabrication, like deposition, photolithography, etching. Also some personality questions were asked. The questions is not difficult, but there were some traps.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Micron Technology (Boise, ID) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Met during campus career fair. Interviewed with recruiter the next day, and a few weeks later was asked to fly to Boise for on site interview. Interview was ALL day long and very similar to others experience on glassdoor. A few behavior Qs and brain teasers. Everyone seemed interested in salary expectations and what I wanted from Micron as a whole (career wise). Every 45 min was a new engineer walking in and asking very technical questions not necessarily related to my resume but specific to the job requirements. Everything from materials processing to electrical circuits. Was guided out and told me they would be in touch. Interview went well but the end was an unsettling experience as it was a sudden end to the interview. Took another Job as the decision process took WAY too long.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Micron Technology (Manassas, VA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    It began with a brief phone review after an online application with an employee reference. This was basically just a sanity check making sure you were competent and new basics like Ohm's Law. After a week or so I was brought in for the onsite which included 2 panels and 2 managers. The first panel was the technical interview and was rather challenging unless you had semiconductor experience in school. The behavioral panel followed and was fairly standard and asked very expected questions. Next you undergo another behavioral interview with the section head and finally a senior manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical questions regarding CMOS devices   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    This was for an entry level position so I accepted a reasonable offer without negotiating

    2 Telephonic conversations (1 HR and 1 technical) after which i was invited for an onsite. Had 4 sessions of interviews with 2-people panels and one final interview with a manager.
