Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at NVIDIA.

Interview Details

I got an email from HR asking to send my resume and my schedule for the next two weeks. I was set up with a phone interview the next week in the afternoon at 1:00. Started a little late due to phone issues, but otherwise no trouble. Was asked about points on my resume, then asked several technical questions. Overall a good experience, and the interviewer was very nice.
