Memory Validation Engineer Interview
I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in August 2013.
Applied via LinkedIn, got an email from HR and a phone interview was set up for a week later. The interviewer never called, I emailed HR to reschedule, and the interviewer called right back. The call lasted 45 minutes.

Memory Validation Engineer InterviewAccepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at NVIDIA (Austin, TX) in January 2012.
Phone interview - looking for knowledge specific to my job
On-site interview in Austin - mix of general knowledge, specific questions about memory and lots of questions about scopes and jitter measurements
On-site interview in CA - similar to Austin interview. They flew me out for about 36 hours to talk to 4 team members. This was good because I was considering moving to CA and I was glad that I got to see it first, because I stayed in Austin.
I was an interviewer at my old job, so I asked dozens of other people the kinds of questions that they asked me, so I think I breezed through it.
They asked what I made. I did not tell them what I made, but I said: "This is the amount for which I will leave my current company." Using glassdoor, I knew what the range was for this position, and I aimed a little higher than average. Also, I told them that I had a sizeable amount of RSUs. They matched what I asked for for salary and beat my current unvested RSU amount. I was very happy with the benefits package.
