I applied online and interviewed at Tektronix.
Interview Details – Consisted of 1/2 day on California site, and a full day in Beaverton. The interview was what I expected, it was of medium difficulty. After each interviewer I learned a bit more about what they were looking for and used it with the next person. There were not any questions I felt I could not answer reasonably well.
Interview Question – have you ever been asked to do something you felt was unethical, if so what did you do. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – pretty simple. I asked for more than I wanted and got a good salary. They wouldn't budge on vacation days however. 3 weeks max.
Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Tektronix.
Interview Details – I was first emailed about the opportunity, and I was followed up with a phone conversation about my resume and my professional interests. There wasn't a technical interview, however they asked me about my strengths and experiences.
Interview Question – Do you have experience in C/C++ (not very difficult) Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tektronix.
Interview Details – First step was a 20 minute phone interview. I was asked mostly about my interests in school (was a student at the time) as well as any projects that I had been involved in or that I had found especially interesting. This was followed up by a half-day interview with 4 separate people: 3 engineers from the group I would be interning with (one of which was the group's engineering manager) and 1 HR person. Each met with me individually for about 30-45 minutes. The HR person mostly went over the terms of the internship program and didn't ask any interview questions. 2 of the engineers split their time between asking me questions about my resume and asking technical problems to be solved on a white board. The questions started out basic but grew in complexity as each one was solved. The 4th interviewer asked me only about things on my resume and one quick technical question that didn't require solving anything. Overall, all of the interviewers were very amiable and the atmosphere was very low pressure. Even the technical questions were given in a very colloquial fashion. I left the interview feeling very positive and relaxed, like I had just spent the last few hours talking shop with some of my fellow engineering classmates.
Interview Question – A schematic shows a BJT in a common-collector configuration with the collector tied to ground, the base attached to a signal source, and the emitter connected through a resistor to -5V. In between the emitter and resistor is one end of a 75 Ohm transmission line. The other end is attached to a 75 Ohm resistor that terminates it to -5V. The signal source is a step with an initial voltage of -5V and a step voltage up to 0V. Determine the voltage at the emitter before and after the step. Then, draw the path of the loop current when the voltage transient has traveled halfway down the transmission line. Then, determine the voltage at the terminated end of the transmission line just before and just after the transient arrives. Determine how much power is reflected by the termination. View Answer
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Tektronix in February 2011.
Interview Details – I didn't get the job. I am relieved because the interview questions were absolutely ridiculous and had nothing to do with the job. All questions were behaviorial or situational (e.g. "tell me about a time when...). It was also a panel interview and the people seemed very stiff and uncomfortable - which in turn made me feel weird. I would prefer people ask more about me and ask me how my skills and experience would fit the job.
They asked a bunch of questions for situations that have never happened to me - which resulted in me having to make stuff up. lol.
Interview Question – "Tell me about a time when you saved someone's life." View Answer
Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Tektronix in September 2010.
Interview Details – The interviewing schedule was a marathon, from 8am to 5pm with a lunch interview as well. I hardly ate anything. I interviewed with 9 managers. The process was well organized and each manager was tasked with a different aspect in the Behavioral Interviewing style. There was only 1 manager that allowed me enough time to ask about the job and the product portfolio that I was interviewing for. Many PM technical aspects were asked of me. After 2 weeks I did have to call back to find out what decision they had made. When asked for feedback about my experience, as expected information was limited but I did get out of them that I was runner up.
Interview Question – How did you do risk management? View Answer
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Tektronix in February 2011.
Interview Details – I applied online and was contacted by an internal recruiter for a phone interview and then forwarded my application onto the hiring manager. Was brought in for formal interviews with hiring manager and several colleagues and direct reports. Interviews were a combination of skills and experience assessments as well as behavioral questions.
The process took a day - interviewed at Tektronix in April 2011.
Interview Details – He started with the skills I possess and then with technical questions. All of his questions were very abstract. I tried to get more information on what he expects but could find the anything significant.
I answered them, as far as i could understand his expectations from his questions. awaiting for the reply.
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tektronix in June 2008.
Interview Details – I was contacted by the recruiter after applying to the job in university job posting. We had 3 rounds of interviews, all of them were face to face. Since I was interviewing for internship, interview was pretty basic. Tested on object oriented programming, design patterns and data structures.
