    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Instruments (Austin, TX) in September 2011.

    Interview

    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.
