Application Details

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

Interview Details

The interview was setup for two days after the campus career fair. The interview was about 50 mins long and was with two interviewers. It was well organized. It started with some general questions on GPA, major, standing etc. Next, they asked to talk about a design project in detail. Next, were two behavioral questions- a time when you took initiative, a time when you used your technical and debugging skills to solve a problem. In the end were two technical questions based on Op-amps and frequency response.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at National Instruments in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter is incredibly nice! It was a very relaxed interview for the most part. Half the interview was behavioral questions and the other half was technical based. They will explain the purpose of all behavioral questions to you so that you can kind of center your answer around it. The best part is they tell you exactly what they are looking for so you don't have to guess. The technical portion of the interview was probably the toughest part; it was a combination of software and hardware knowledge. Brush up on your knowledge of bitwise conversions and how ADCs function. Finally, know arrays!

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at National Instruments in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    I initially made contact with NI at a leadership seminar hosted on campus. They took resumes and met students at a dinner following. The interview consisted of an hour long 1:1 interview. The interviewer asked questions about the resume, behavioral questions, and two technical questions. The interview was not high stress. Be prepared to answer the behavioral questions and talk your way through the technical questions. The process is more important than the answer.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at National Instruments in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I attended an on-campus recruiting event and got contacted by recruiter for an on-campus interview. The interview lasts for around 1 hour and there was only one-round of interview unlike many other companies. I got lots of questions on previous projects and only one technical question, which is pretty straight-forward.
