    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview

    First round was a written one.It consisted of aptitude and technical questions on C and some on OS.It was fine but one should focus on speed to clear it, After that there were 2 technical interviews and an HR round. In the technical rounds focus was on basic concepts of C, OOPS concepts related to C++, questions on bitwise operators, a few programming questions and OS. Few of the questions i was asked were - memory management in a C program, on threads and how they work, various types of sorts and there uses, priority inversion, all OOPS concepts were asked to explain, reader/writer problem using semaphores.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview

    A recruiter came to my university as part of their campus recruiting program. He asked me to define a couple of macros in C that would perform basic functions, such as converting int to char and reversing a string. He was very straight forward and didn't help much throughout the thought process.

    Interview Questions

    • Define a macro that will convert a char array (string) to an int array   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They gave you the salary and did not prompt any negotiation, nor did I attempt to negotiate.

    Interview

    On campus interview, the questions are fairly easy. Qualcomm hiring people who have strong skills on C programming. Be prepared for that.

    Interview

    I had several phone interviews with Qualcomm for their embedded firmware engineer positions but failed to score an on-site one mostly because I wasn't very prepared for their technical questions. So make sure you got the basics down before applying. As much as I remember, those interview questions cover lots of C fundamentals such as pointers, function pointers and function calls, as well as other computer science knowledge. Good luck!
