Average Interview

Application

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in May 2012.

Interview

I had a phone interview arranged through a recruiter at linkedlin. I had a phone interview with a member from the tegra moblie platform team and though he was looking for people with experience on performance tuning ( which i did not have), he liked my resume and forwarded to another team member. Then i had another interview and the interviewer was very nice and friendly. He gave me a brief description of his work at Nvidia for about 15 mins. Then he head on to my resume and asked a couple of questions regarding a graphics project that i had built. Then he asked me 2 problems and my interview was over.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at NVIDIA.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's coop system and got 2 phone interviews for 2 different teams. In the first interview the interviewer showed up 45 minutes late, and tried to cram the entire hour-long interview into 20 minutes. He sounded completely disinterested right from the start, and kept complaining about the sound quality. The second interview went a lot better, but the interviewer asked a lot of bad, vague, or just generally unanswerable questions.

It was very hard-core. The interviewer thanked me for not bs-ing him and just telling him I don't know something.
