    I applied through college or university – interviewed at National Instruments.

    Interview Details

    On campus career fair. Interview was on the next day.
    And a couple of behavioural questions as well. Eg: describing about a project, what was the role, major problem and how was it tackled, etc..
    Not very tough. Could have been better if properly prepared or gone through the concepts.
    It was a 45-minute interview, first 10 minutes behavioural, 30 minutes technical - 3 questions and they see the way you proceed in solving them (1. Some circuit was given and asked to draw the frequency response and find the cut off frequency 2. Design a circuit with a gain of 10) Do not remember the third question. Last 5 minutes - any questions to be asked.

    Didn't hear back after the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions on frequency response and designing circuit with a certain gain.
      Basics learnt in electronic devices and circuits, pulse and digital circuit courses.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at National Instruments in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Got selected for an on-site interview after on-campus interview. There were three interviews in one day in Austin, all of them very technical. It seemed that they kept asking questions that made the original problem progressively harder, until they inevitably get you with some detail you can't remember... Overall, though, I think they were very professional and took care of the details of my trip to their HQ.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at National Instruments in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    A one hour interview with two people. One person began the interview by asking behavioral questions for about 15 minutes, including areas of interests etc. Next I got asked two technical questions by the other person. Overall the interviewing experience was quite good. Everytime I got stuck with the questions, I was guided in the right general directions without giving me too much, and I got clear, honest answers to the questions I asked them regarding NI's future, what i am to expect etc.
