The process took a day - interviewed at Qualcomm in January 2012.

Interview Details – Initial communication is via phone interview. This went very well.
The interview process, setting up, travel, etc was very easy. Qualcomm makes it easy for people to come in.
The interview itself was a long process, my interviews started at 10:00 and did not end until 6:00 pm. This makes it a long day. Interview also went through lunch, which makes it difficult to eat and relax.
The questions and problem solving was not difficult, but without knowing exactly the type of person they are looking for, it is difficult to react to their questions.

Interview Question – Problem statement:
In a tic-tac-toe grid, fill numbers 1-9 so that all the number in row & col add to same number. 1 min to solve.
