    The interview process was pretty straightforward with questions and general discussions on project work and basic concepts. The recruiter was really humble and asked me questions on my work done here at UC Irvine.
    Pretty interesting open questions on how I would implement a project as well. He was looking for someone with hardware and software experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ON Semiconductor (Nampa, ID) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied and was called to interview with a days notice. I ended up playing phone tag with the HR recruiter for two weeks before calling and leaving her a message saying I would be in the area for two days and giving her the times I would be available. She called me on the first day and we set up an appointment. It was a one hour interview which included a ton of softball questions for someone with any EHS experience. Then they gave me a quiz asking me to define the acronyms for various environmental and safety regulations. At the end of the interview they said I would hear either way two weeks later. Six weeks later I still have not heard anything and I am interviewing with other companies.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at ON Semiconductor (Phoenix, AZ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It moved along quite quickly, it started with an email to schedule an initial 20-minute screening interview. The following week, without being scheduled, the hiring manager called me to ask some additional questions, and I did have the time available so I took the "cold" call that went about 30 minutes. Two weeks later I had an all morning set of group interviews with various teams. They gave me an agenda of the names of the people I'd be meeting with, which was helpful, giving me a chance to at least look up their backgrounds on LinkedIn for most of them. That set of interviews (about 2-3 people about 30-45 minutes at a time) went very well for me.
