The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at National Instruments in April 2012.
Interview Details –
It was a part of career fair at my university. I submitted my resume and next day I got a call for interview. The next day I had one interview in campus and it went well.
He asked about basic FSM design and questions about digital hardware.
After 2 weeks I got an email for on site interview. It was scheduled on Friday. There were 25-30 student on the same day. My day was as follows:
Introduction, small presentation, breakfast, 1st technical interview, lunch, 2nd technical interview, small break, 3rd technical interview, a small presentation by company, and finally HR wrap up.
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at National Instruments in December 2011.
Interview Details – It was a on-campus interview, i got the interview on the university career fair. It lasted about 45 mins. The recruiter first asked one of my school project. He seemed to be very interested that and asked a lot of questions. Then followed by one technical question. It was a pattern detection question using finite state machine. If you have a course in digital logic design, this should not be a problem. Then came with one behavior question: what was the biggest problem or bug or difficulty that you once came to? I heard about this question so I prepared for it. Overall I think I did pretty well on the interview, but I didn't make it to the on-site interview. I guess they want to hire more analog guys. There are not actually many digital positions opening--that's what I heard from my friend working there.
Interview Question – What was the biggest problem you have encountered in your school work or experience? Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 9 months - interviewed at National Instruments in September 2011.
Interview Details – The interview was very involved and structured. The interview process required creating a presentation, which covered a previous design or significant body of work. The interview day began with the 45 minute presentation, followed by 15 minutes of questions and answers. There were three technical interviews before lunch, and then an HR interview, behavioral interview and an interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager did a good job preparing me for the interview, which included meeting with me several times before the interview day and reviewing my presentation slides. After the interview concluded, I did not hear anything from the hiring manager for 3 weeks. Upon contacting them we met for a final meeting to negotiate the terms of employment. Being persistent seemed to help after the interview. NI seems to be the kind of company that is very careful with who they extend an offer to, and weren't ready to extend an official offer without negotiating all aspects of the job and compensation.
Interview Question – How do you choose a window for a Fast Fourier Transform, and why would you choose one window over another? Answer Question
