    Positive Experience

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Received the onsite interview request after the phone interview. The onsite process includes 6 rounds.

    Technical interviewers were easy going, they would give you hints or lead you if you have no clue. Asked about hardware test related questions, include what to test, how to test, what could be reasons if result is not as expected. Require basic knowledge about circuit schematic diagram, wireless communication transceiver diagram, noise figure, link budget calculation, sensitivity, testing equipment (e.g. VNA, Spectrum analyzer, etc.), basic C++ or C#

    HR interview was very nice, introduced the company and its benefits, very few behavior questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about problems one may see in practical testing, and how to debug the problem. They want to see how you think about the problem if you don't have experience.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    i applied for a 3 months contract position in IT as i was desparately looking for a job after my contract ended. i applied via indeed.com and got a call from HR within a week. it was pretty simple and HR took details like visa, desired hourly pay ,annual salary if i take full time job etc. Later HR communicated via email and set up my first technical interview over phone. i was interviewed for 30-40 min over phone by my manager on technical side. later i was communicated via email and second interview over phone was set up. even second interview was technical pretty much and some general question. it went on for around 20 min. since i was interviewed for temp position my interview was pretty cool and was over phone only. i was satisfied with how the interview went and as expected i was selected fpr the applied position. my consultancy employer stepped in after my interview process is completed and had to do corp to corp (due to visa ) .after salary negotiation i was confirmed for the position and had to join in 10 days. over all the interview process took around 3 weeks from the time i first applied to the joining date. i heard from my colleagues that full time interviews were pretty exhausting and length as it will be face to face only.
