    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Qualcomm in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    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

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Qualcomm in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    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

    Interview Questions
    • 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
    Negotiation Details
    I went thru a Qualcomm approved vendor. Negotiated my salary from $32/hour to $35 / hour.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Qualcomm in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you debug a piece of code without access to a debugger or an IDE?   View Answer
