    Applications Engineer-mcu Prod Div Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Silicon Laboratories in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied on linkedin. Was contacted by a recruiter in a week and scheduled a phone interview on the next day. They basically asked questions from my projects that I mentioned on my resume. And also about different tools that I have used. And there were questions like, what problems did you face when doing this particular project, how did you deal with it etc. They asked me about all the projects on the resume which were relevant to the role. It was not so difficult.

    They flew me to Boston for an onsite after 2 weeks. Had 5 rounds - all technical. It started off with a tour of their office and different engineering teams working there. The rounds were on RF concepts, PCB Design, Power System Design, C Programming and Wireless Networks.

    It was a good experience overall, except that I did not have PCB Design experience. And that was the reason they said, they wouldn't move further in the process.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Silicon Laboratories in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I found the position at my campus career fair and was selected for an interview a few weeks later. The interview was mostly technical. I found out about a week later that I was not selected for the next round. Overall, it was a simple and pleasant process. I regret not reviewing the related course material enough beforehand.
