Interview Details – Was contacted by corporate after applying online, took a while to hear back from them - a few weeks. Set up the interview in a day or two, they were flexible on timing which was nice.
Met with 3 people at once, unique for me at least, but saved some time.
They asked me basic questions about my work experience, skills I had etc. Nothing too grilling technically, like asking me to derive op-amp transfer functions etc.
All 3 were very engaging and willing to answer questions honestly and openly about the company. Very nice facility, and seemed like a good place to work, perhaps a bit over-booked with work, but that's what good management does - keeps the work back logged, and feeds it to you appropriately and with good timing.
No offer has come yet because I have a round 2 interview, the EE manager was out of the office that day, a minor goof by HR.

Know the technology and be able to describe it.
Good to know the latest buzz words.
Expand on previous experience and it is related to the new position and try not to overcompensate. If you don't know, then state that you don't know instead of getting grilled for no reason. Offer other areas of expertise as the positions are not specific and can be asked to take on more than one duty.
