    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Qualcomm in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I got two phone interviews. Both were highly technical and went well. Generally, it takes 7-10 days to return you about the interview process.

    After that, I have been called for an on-site interview. On-site interview took six hours, I met with 6 engineers, all technical interview.

    Unfortunately, I am a research/academic oriented person, and my qualifications did not match with their requirement. Otherwise, company and hiring process is fair.
