    Interview Details

    Phone interview. Very happy chat and casual questions. We did the interview over the WebEx, and the manager, the mentor and another senior engineer interviewed me. It was a long conversation but quite pleasant and casual. The hiring process was very professional and systematic. The HR was quite familiar with the system and informative.

    IT Support Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Rambus in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I place the blame on the recruiter for not getting an offer. I was told the job would be direct hire and later found that the recruitment company couldn't do direct placement that I had to be a contractor. They were never clear from the beging what the role was going to be but somehow they are Rambus prefered vendor...? The office was very nice, the atmosphere and employees were all plesant and nice. Lots of great benefits, free food and drinks. After the interview I met up with my recruiter to discuss and from that moment on I never heard back, no emails no phone calls and they never returned any of my calls or emails. Eventually I ended up emailed the hiring manager to find out what happened.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Rambus in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Seemed to have preconceptions/prejudgements that were difficult to overcome. Sense of arrogance in interviewer made it a bit uncomfortable. Recruiter thought I had a perfect match, and sounded like it from the position description, but perhaps they look for a more aggressive, confrontational personality.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Rambus in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone screen by recruiter, phone interview with hiring manager. On-site interviews took half a day with manager and members of team. Most of it was technical, and discussing past experiences. All team members were frank about answering questions.

    I believe anyone who has worked in chip development would feel at ease handling the interview process. Nothing complicated.

    Can definitely go for higher numbers in your range. Stock compensation is not worth a lot. So make it up with cash compensation.
