    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Qualcomm in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Two stage process. Stage I a straight forward "who are you" set of HR questions. Stage II 5 one hour one-on-one technical sessions of medium to low difficulty. Interviewers were generally pleasant with a pervasive sense of we need help in the air.

    Staff Hardware Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Qualcomm in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Amazingly, my resume caught the eye of HR and they invited me to a technical phone interview. The interviewer was straight-forward and asked questions relevant to the position. Most replies were either accepted or followed by another question. Although I was able to answer many of the questions, it apparently wasn't good enough and was not selected for an on-site. It could have been the result of the final question about what I preferred to do or what role I wanted to assume- perhaps my answer was too broad or not the "right" answer.
