    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Four phone interviews, each 45 min. First round was talking something about behavior question like what do you like in nvidia, how do you know us, and some basic C programming problems. Second and third round interview was on the same day with 1 hour interval, many low-level C programming problems, and bit operation: how to calculate 7*x without using plus and multiplication (using bit shift and subtraction); fourth interview was about my personal Operating System projects, mainly on process schedule, memory management. Knowing Offer about two weeks after the last round interview. Very good interviewer - easygoing engineers. Quite good company. I'm a tech fan of NVIDIA for more than 4 years!!!
