Initial phone interview went very well. Actual interview was extremely technically challenging. I have never been through a more brutal interview process and it was very humbling.

    It's a one-day interview. You will be taken to different groups and asked to solve several technical questions (make sure to get fully prepared because it's tough!). There were also several presentations introducing their company and products.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at National Instruments in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Most of the questions were based on solving for the gain of cascaded BJTs. A couple of questions on diodes and opamps. Lot of emphasis on projects and questions based on that. Overall it was not a difficult interview. I screwed up because I was rusty on BJTs ...
    There were three rounds of interviews each lasting 1.5 hours. Each with a separate group within NI. Except for the first interviewer, they were friendly and helped me throughout.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at National Instruments in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interview consists of two main parts. The first part is about past experiences and the second part is technical questions. Past experiences go through situations where you demonstrated the use of a particular skill, like debugging. The technical questions don't go into much detail unless you do very well, but cover a lot of courses.
