Software Engineer Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ months – interviewed at Synopsys (Boston, MA) in July 2012.
I had 3 phone calls. The first one was about my resume and the second one after a month was the first interview about data structure and c++ programming. The third call again after a month was about graph theory. Still i am waiting for their decisions although the last interview was more than a month ago.
- They asked me about some tricky card questions that needed probability knowledge. Answer Question

The process took 5 days – interviewed at Synopsys (Sunnyvale, CA) in July 2011.
Interviewed in person with about 3 people. One of them was a manager, and 2 engineers. Interview with the engineers went well, but the manager, who also asked me to write programs, didn't quite seem to understand the code. He asked about writing a program to find out the endianess of a machine. When he wasn't sure about the function, he asked "how else can you find out". I said the endianess is also defined in one of the system header files. He then asked "which one?", to which I replied "i don't the exact one, but perhaps machine.h or something like that. A find/grep would take a minute or so." He didn't seem to like the answer, or perhaps wasn't sure himself. In any case, I felt he tried to continue to ask questions just to come to one that I wouldn't be able to answer. He was truly a bad interviewer. The other engineers who were more technical didn't appear to be this way.

I got the job offer for a position at Coverity in Calgary, Canada. They revoked my offer after both me and them had signed it due to my nationality.

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks – interviewed at Synopsys in April 2010.
Got call when applied for a online posting, had a phone interview first and was asked basic questions regarding the job and my experience.
Soon called for in-person interview, met with 4 persons one by one, questions were related to job description and my prior experience. Nothing tough or unusual.
I was told later that hiring manager will proceed for referral check and background processing and let me know when its done. I was informed later that hiring manager went on leave, was dilly-dallied for 7 weeks like this (everyone in hiring went on leave one by one !!).
Ultimately I received offer from somewhere else and went for it. Their attitude was not professional and transparent.
