Very Easy Interview

Senior Verification Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at PLX Technology.

Interview Details – I worked thru an job agent to contact this company many years ago. The interview was split into to times each being a 3 hour session toward the end of the day. Being a small company they asked me to talk to the VP of engineering, director of design engineering, manager of verification, the latter being my upcoming direct manager.

Interview Question – There was no really difficult question. If I remember clearly, maybe questions on RTL coding style, like
always @(posedge clk, reset_active) begin
if(reset_active)
   do somthing
else
   do something
end

vs:

always @(posedge clk, reset_active) begin
if(!reset_active)
   do something
else
  do something
end

What is the difference in above two impl's.
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I specified to my agent and the agent handled it nicely. So I got initially satisfied and took the offer (unfortunately after that for almost 10 good years my raise was virtually nil, which pissed me off big time, for my honesty and faithfulness to the company)

After this I has a talk with the Director of Software Engineering, who sits in USA

I was then asked to come for a face to face interview at Bangalore, and my travel expenses were borne by the company. Face to face round consisted of three interactions. The first one was with the Senior Software Engineer, who gave me certain design based questions. The Java API documentation had been made available to me. The second was with the Software Tech Lead, who again gave me some design problems based on data structures.
