I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Qualcomm in April 2013.

Interview Details – It was an on-campus recruitment drive and there was an online written test followed by two technical and one HR interview a week after the test results were out.
The written test consisted of three sections: Quantitative Aptitude, Programming, VLSI/Communication. I appeared for the job in VLSI domain. There are basic questions asked in VLSI from Verilog,Digital Circuits, Microprocessor and programming questions included just finding the output for simple programs involving loops and selecting the correct implementation of a code,questions are not language specific, they are written in terms of algorithms. Quantitative Aptitude is also very simple.
There were two technical interviews. In my first intterview questions were basically targeted at CMOS Devices and my projects that i had done during my B.Tech.
In the second round of interiew questions were about digital system design(front end) and he also asked a few puzzles just to check the approach for tackling the question
In the last round, just salary details were mentioned to me and i got selected.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Qualcomm in June 2012.

Interview Details – It was an on-site interview at Hyderabad. There were two technical rounds, one managerial round and an HR round. The first technical started as an icebreaker with basic C questions but progressed into a probing mode soon with focus on computer architecture. The second one was fine and I got the questions except one number puzzle one. The managerial round had technical questions as well as a a puzzle question which really dificult. HR round was a cakewalk.
