I applied online - interviewed at Qualcomm in January 2013.
Interview Details – Got an email from HR and scheduled a phone interview. In the phone interview I was asked some basic programming questions like bit manipulation and some OS questions like dealocks. Then I got an email to schedule an onsite interview. The onsite interview includes 5 interviewers, four of them asked tech questions and the other one is a lunch interview, so only some casual talk about my experience.

Interview Details –
Phone Screen was setup . Started with previous background and courses etc.
Questions from the phonescreen :
What is static,volatile.Give examples where static and volatile are used ?
If 2^4 has 2 digits(decimal) ,how many digits are there in 2^1000?
I gave answer ceiling of 1000*log 2 (base 10).
Interview Question –
Given a uni processor architecture.
A process X has code at memory location 10,000 , the PC(program counter) is pointing to it and executing instruction from there. A process Y has code at memory location 20,000. The OS(kernel) has its own code at some memory location.
How does the PC change from process from code at location 10,000 or 10,050(after some time of execution),to the kernel location during a context switch to Process B ?
Please let me know if you have the answer.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Qualcomm in June 2012.
Interview Details –
All technical questions for the hour-long phone interview. He started out with basics: C++ keywords such as static, volatile, atomic operations. And then a coding question, where your asked to identify a certain 5-bit pattern given a bit stream.
The onsite interview was 6 hour long, a different interviewer per hour. The structure is very similar to the phone interview, where they start out asking you about your background and some basic knowledge questions, and then hit you with coding problems.
Was able to answer 80% of the questions, and receive interests from 3 different teams, but did not receive an offer for US branches due to VISA problem.
