Software Engineer Interview
I applied through college or university – interviewed at Qualcomm.
I got on-campus interview which is supposed to be 45 m long. I heard some other candidates are asked some list, pointer kind questions or somewhat easy. I have not learned what he asked so took me more than 45 minutes. It turned out to be simple. The interviewer was really nice and tried his best to help me understand the problem and guide to the solution.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Qualcomm.
I was selected by my recruiter to interview with Qualcomm, with very little details.
The interview was almost 100% technical, with little regard to what was already on my resume. Overall, it was a depressing experience: the questions were all trivia (no problem solving/whiteboarding), the interviewer didn't even tell me his name, and he smiled twice the entire forty five minutes.
- Various questions about data structures, C, C++. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took a day – interviewed at Qualcomm (Seattle, WA) in October 2014.
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
- 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.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in July 2014.
Very good process. I was supposed to work as a contractor for Qualcomm. The hiring manager from Qualcomm directly called me to set up an interview. I was a referral candidate too. @ hours telephonic interview and I was extended the offer letter
- Very silly questions like : What are the storage classes in C ? They asked OS related stuff, and a bit about Linked lists. Rest all questions were related to C, Data Structures and projects from my resume. Make sure you know your resume well. I had taken up Wireless Communications in my 2nd semester and was asked questions on that like : What did youlearn ? Explain in brief..etc.. Answer Question
I went thru a Qualcomm approved vendor. Negotiated my salary from $32/hour to $35 / hour.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Qualcomm (Berkeley, CA) in March 2014.
I applied online to Qualcomm some time in February 2014, and heard back a month later.
I hate two interviews that were a mix of technical and behavioral questions.
The technical questions were centered around C++ or Java. The interviewer was flexible and let me answer based on the language that I preferred. There were some general questions about data structure, heap and stack, and other algorithm based questions.
I found the behavioural questions to be fairly detailed. It included experience working with teams, experience with existing code bases. and debugging methods.
