    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at RFMD (Greensboro, NC) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Met with manager of characterization at a career fair and was invited to come see the company's campus and interview with them. It was a full day interview starting with HR and then being sent to the characterization/testing building to interview with a number of their engineers and technicians. First interview with an engineer was very technical, discussed filter designs and digital circuitry. Second interview was about software experience and a quick run through of the specifics of the job. Rest of the interviews were a mix of technical and personality questions as I was briefed on the day to day expectations and what not.

    One hour long group phone interview followed by a full day of 1:1 interviews with a combination of 8 managers and directors.

What skills do you use to monitor project progress? How do you manage a team? The lunch was purely a personality compatibility test.
