    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at STMicroelectronics in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Process of hiring a Design Engineer profile for Digital domain work requiring a Electronics background candidate.

    STEP 0 (optional) If you are appearing for interview form out the city and required reimbursement of flight charges. Generally, a Telephonic Interview to qualify you as a suitable candidate is conducted.

    STEP 1 : Technical written test (2 hrs approx.) Objective + Subjective test containing question on RLC n/w analysis. Basic Analog circuits such as op-amps/ Clippers/ Clampers.
    Subjective question on FSM /Timing analysis (core content of paper). This is just a qualifying round.

    STEP 2 : 1 Technical interview (40-50 Min) conducted by a employee of the team for which candidate has appeared. Generally, here the technical paper results are discussed and grilling on concepts is done. This is the most crucial stage of the process.

    STEP 3 : 2 Technical interview (20-30 Min). The team manager and the section manager conduct this round its a partial HR interview as well. The feedback of step 2 is carried forward. And, if everything goes well in previous steps attempts are made by manager to estimate the sustainability and IQ of employee. This is not a complex technical round.

    STEP 4 : HR Interview (10-15 Min) This is just a formality unless you have got some serous issues to deal with, one such example being unmatched salary expectations . Generally, the feedback from step 2 and 3 are the deciding thing.

    Good interview process
    People are grilled for their theoretical knowledge in all domains in a written test

    Interview process can vary on case to case basis. However, very good process of analysing the candidate's capabilties.

    Design Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at STMicroelectronics in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was an intern here at STMicroelectronics and was later given a contract to continue working under the employment of a 3rd party vendor. The compensation was pathetic so after a year I decided to apply for a permanent position at STMicroelectronics itself. Thus I directly went to the HR/ my manager and requested for the same. My interview was scheduled with other external candidates who were also competing with me for the position. I cleared the written test which was 2 hours long. The questions were objective as well as subjective. The subjective questions were very challenging. The questions were mainly based on electronics and mental ability. After the written test I was called for the interviews. There were a total of 4 interviews (one on one). The first interview was centered around the questions which I left unanswered or I did incorrectly in the written test. I was very happy to see the encouragement the interviewer gave me after I gave each answer. He also showed me the optimum approach in each case. This interview went along for 2 hours but I was very satisfied. On the second day the second and the third interviewers asked their own sets of questions and each took about 1 hour. I was very much impressed by the in depth knowledge and the interest they showed in technical stuff. The final interview was by the manager and he asked questions related to my internship and long term goals. Finally the HR took my details and asked other routine questions and summed up the process.

    Reasons for Declining

    The compensation though marginally good was not upto my expectations. Also I got a job offer from a different company with a very lucrative offer. And since I had already spent 1.5 years working as a intern and a contractor in STMicroelectronics I felt its best to switch to a new one.

    Interview Details

    The ST building is beautiful and makes a lasting impression.
    I was asked to wait in the lounge and was interviewed by two people. Both of them asked technical questions/puzzles. Most of the technical questions were of DS.
    Then I had one HR interview followed by an interview with the group head.
