ASIC Design Engineer Interview

ASIC Design Engineer

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at NVIDIA in August 2013.

Interview Details – Four phone screens + 1 day onsite.

Very slow moving thru the selection process. Took about ~3months, and no job.

They ask for 3 references and a background check.
My references were not even contacted. So that means they did not want to hire me anyway. Why did they not send me a rejection email sooner instead of keeping me in suspense. I'd rather know sooner than later if I am not a good fit for a team.

Interview Question – STA algorithms.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at NVIDIA in April 2012.

Interview Details – I got the first interview after I applied online and I did not receive the outcome from the interview. After about one month, I applied for some other positions online and got an interview request on the second day, but not for the positions I just applied for. During the 2rd interview, I was told that the interview is the 2rd interview after my 1st interview and at the end of this interview I was told there would be the 3rd interview for, but after 2 days, I got rejection letter from HR.
