Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Qualcomm in March 2013.

Interview

Half hour phone interview with engineer. Spoke really bad english, was asking detailed CMOS questions and asking me to draw circuits on a piece of paper as we went along. Most of the times, interviewer was looking for a specific answer although there is more than one way to skin a cat. Very full of himself it seemed.

    Interview Questions

    • Section 1: Aptitude – 20 questions(20 minutes) : This was relatively easy. The key was not to lose your cool… Questions were there from probability, Data Interpretation, Profit and Loss, Percentages , Ratio/Proportion, Speed Time and Distance etc. Speed and accuracy were the key. As it was the first section… don’t start the test until all your nerves are settled(I wasted 5 mins in this section trying to settle my nerves). Section 2: Computer Section: 20 question (25 minutes): It cannot get tougher. Question from everything you can think off were asked . Concepts of OOPs were tested . Questions were from Pointers , Arrays , Sorting , Searching in C. Questions were also related to trees, hashing, queues , Stack. One question was based on Master Theorem . One question was on finding the complexity of a a recursive function. Questions were also asked from computer organisation (like daisychaining etc). One question was on Stack Organisation . However , as the round is relative, you just have to better than the rest !! PS: it was the toughest section . And question here were unexpected . Especially the OOPs part !! Section 3: Hardware: 20 questions(30 minutes): It was hard!!(as expected) . Questions were majorly from Digital Electronics(about 10-11)(keep your concepts on counters, sequential logic very strong. 3-4 questions were from microprocessor like. Question like “which register is not present in 8081 but present in 8085 & 8086” and A code was given in assembly language… Analog electronics was extremely difficult (dint even know the part from which the questions were asked )…   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Qualcomm in January 2007.

    Interview

    After applying I received a reply in one week for on site interview. Overall the interview was pretty much technical. Questions ranged from regarding university project till the actual communication theory. I will advise to study your communications related modules properly before the interview. Also the background of the company is important but I think it depends on whom is interviewing. I was interviewed by only engineers and hence wasn't really asked as much house keeping questions as I would had normally been.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Qualcomm in January 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email setting up a phone interview within about a week. Was told that the interview would be "highly technical" and I should set aside an hour to an hour and a half. The interviewer was very friendly and asked a few questions about my resume but not much else personal before getting into the technical interview. The questions were mostly writing C code as well as some more background stack and queue stuff.

    Interview Questions

    • Read the code out loud for the reverse string method in C.   Answer Question
