Santa Clara, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at NVIDIA in May 2013.

Interview Details – 1. resume screening
2. phone interview
Because of weak signals of ATT, the phone interview is a little messed up. But I do not think it's anyone's faults except ATT.
They asked no personality questions but only technical questions, not hard but definitely related to what I am doing right now. I think they main goal is to make sure the candidates match the job requirements.

Intern Interview

Intern
Santa Clara, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at NVIDIA in October 2009.

Interview Details – The preliminary screen will be done by the HR group, who will likely go over your resume. An initial screen is done by the hiring manager for the department you'll be working under, which may or may not contain technical questions. They may ask what position you'd like to apply for if you didn't specify in your initial application. If you pass this initial screen, you'll be passed on to the manager or a co-worker of the respective group, which will then go into more specific software questions.

For me, the questions consisted of general software knowledge , as well as some software problems. If everything goes well, you'll be hired.
