    Interview

    The interviews are good experience for me. I only had 2 phone interviews before got accepted by my team. All the phone interviews are mostly screening interviews and talking about previous experience. The interview quesitons are standard questions and focus on your skills in solving a problem. I been interviews by my manager, the team leader and my mentor. They are good to talk with and they have lots of questions that enable you to express your skills in more detail.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Qualcomm (Boulder, CO).

    Interview

    I got the mail from HR requesting a phone interview. The interview was pretty standard, testing your basics in C and a bit in UNIX. The next day, I got an invitation for a second phone interview. This was also technical, more focused on testing skills on networking along with a few questions on my resume and a logical question.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing unexpected. Pretty standard questions like reversing a string in C etc.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation. The pay was good for an intern :)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Jose, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I responded to an email a Qualcomm staffing specialist had sent to a mailing list recruiting for interns. He had reviewed my resume the same day and extended a phone interview invitation. A week later I had 2 phone interviews scheduled. The phone interviews were 1-hr long each, and were with 2 managers on different teams. They both consisted of fairly basic technical questions and questions regarding my experience. The day following the second interview, my recruiter called me back to give me the unofficial offer, and on the 11th day after I first contacted the staffing specialist, I had an official offer. The whole interview process was very efficient, and the communications were very clear. Definitely a positive experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in January 2009.

    Interview

    I spoke to them at a career fair and had a face to face interview the next day. I then had 2 phone interviews in the time that followed. All three interviews were difficult. I typically haven't had any problems with other technology companies I have interviewed with, but Qualcomm was able to find the areas that made me stumble. I eventually was able to work out most of the problems, but it was by no means an easy interview. HR is great about getting back to you, the recruiters are awesome and really help you through the process.

    Interview Questions

    • Discuss why it is best to use different values of decoupling capacitors in a power distribution network instead of a single capacitor.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate because it was an internship. Also, the housing and relocation given to interns is phenomenal.
