    Interview Details

    Called by recruiter to fix phone interview date. Then on the day, was called by the hiring manager. The phone interview lasted for 45 min and delved into what the responsibilities of the role were and also my resume-stated qualifications review. Then a week later the onsite interview date was fixed by the recruiter. There were 7 rounds in the onsite interview. They delved into various aspects of ATE testing. Also some of them questioned on the resume. Some practical scenarios were given for me to explain how i deal with these and solve it.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Nxp Semiconductors Usa in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Worked through their recruiter. They were excited by my experience and skills. After hours of initial phone screening they flew me from east coast for 2 full days of interviews in Washington state and Silicon Valley. I wasn't at all what the interviewers wanted or expected in respect to experience and skills. Interviewing was stressful, harsh, and at times rude. A complete waste of my time and their money. Where was the disconnect? I represented myself 100% accurately, had long phone screenings where all of my strengths and weaknesses were put on the table before being flown out. The worst interviewer (most senior manager I interviewed with) actually reprimanded and scolded me in a harsh tone of voice for not have some specific skills "that every engineer who wants to work in the valley must have" - this gentleman was extremely rude and obviously had no sense how to treat other human beings with respect and decency. Almost everyone had the "We are the great NXP, bow before us" attitude. Makes even good engineers feel very low in an interview.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't have enough time to write them all, nor would anyone have the time to read them. Two full days of interviewing me with questions about technical areas not on my resume, and that I said I didn't have or had little of during the phone screenings. Did they do this just for the sadistic enjoyment of it, or what? I still haven't been able to figure it out.   View Answer

    I was referred to NXP by another employee, and subsequently had a phone interview with a project leader and the group head. Was subsequently invited to fly to CA (from NY), and had a number of fairly technical interviews with various engineers, and lastly, with somebody from HR.

    Received an offer the week after that, but found a more interesting position closer to home, so declined.
