    it was on campus, and they had on campus intern interview. The on campus interview is purely just behavior questions and talk about the resume... and they said they would give me a phone call in two weeks, still waiting

    Interview Questions
    • it's on campus, which is the first step of screening people.. so basically just about your resume and ask you if you have c programming experience. The person i talked to graduated from my school so he knew the c programming class that offers in university, so he asked a bunch of questions about that class and even talked about details of the course, for example, the projects design and how do you debug.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Very straightforward and fast, 2 Interviews, 1 for QCT and 1 for R&D. If you just interview for QCT then there will be 1 interview. Both were about the same level of difficulty. Just be sure to ask a lot of questions about their experience and demonstrate a lot of interest/knowledge about what Qualcomm actually does.

    Mixed Signal Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very technical - more than I expected. No question was asked about my profile or the job profile as such. Directly technical questions were asked. And sometimes its very tough to understand technical questions over the phone to answer then correctly. At the end I was able to answer some parts but it took too much time to understand the questions correctly.

    Interview Details

    The interview process at Qualcomm was very professional, but a little slow moving. After applying on the company website I had a phone interview two weeks later, and then a second phone interview two weeks after that. The first interview involved analyzing the frequency response of a basic circuit, and the second interview consisted of a huge range of questions about different IC design topics.
