    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Qualcomm in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    A two hour technical interview, followed by a four hour technical interview + 1/2 with human resources. Asked to write program in to find greatest common factor, code the bubble sort algorithm, swap a string (end to end) and determine if it is a palindrome, and a parser. Was impressed with most of the people I met. Seems like a good organization.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the interviews was with a guy from Brazil. Even though I actually speak Spanish, I had a very hard time understanding him. He asked a question about writing a parser (code something that will extract part of a string and put it in a hash to determine if it is a duplicate). I didn't understand everything he was saying, but didn't want to be rude, so I did the best I could, but I am pretty sure I missed some of what he was saying.   View Answers (2)

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Qualcomm in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I first had a telephonic interview with engineering staff/manager, it went for about 45 minutes. He asked my recent job experience, wireless protocol related questions, my graduate projects and all. After 1 week on telephonic interview I got an onsite call, there were 8 people for interview panel, each for 40-45 min in person, 4 of them were Engineering manager, 3 of them were senior/staff engineers and 1 HR. In interviews they asked me bunch of wireless protocol related questions, projects, net working concepts, digital communication concepts etc. After around 3 weeks of my onsite Interview, I got an offer from QC.
