Product Marketing Engineer Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Plano, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Texas Instruments in November 2013.

Interview Details – I talked to on-campus recruiters at my university's career fair about my experience, what i was interested in, etc. They invited me for an on-campus interview later that week. The on-campus interview was about 30min and the woman asked me some questions but also told me a lot about what she did as a sales engineer. I received a somewhat cryptic followup email about "we were pleased to meet with you, we will let you know if we have any positions meeting your qualifications." I then received a formal invitation to interview again. This time it was through a service called HireView, where i had to complete a video interview where they flashed a question for :30s then i had 1min to record my answer before the next question popped up. I then was invited for a final interview, also through the HireView site, but this time with a manager. I was then emailed a few weeks later with an offer.

Interview Question – Questions included: Explain how an op-amp works. What is the greatest struggle you have encountered and what did you do about it? What is your greatest weakness?   Answer Question

Easy Interview

Manufacturing Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Employee
Richardson, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Texas Instruments in November 2011.

Interview Details – I was found at a job fair on my campus. I was then called unexpectedly a few weeks later and asked if I could fly from my campus to Texas within the week. I was on the plane two days later with hotel accommodations made by TI. When I arrive I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express and went to my interview in the morning. I directly to my site at RFAB where I met my contact and he led me to the interview room. 8 people were present and each asked several questions. Most were behavioral questions and situational questions.

Interview Question – Would you be willing to work nights? That was the most unexpected question.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was called back 2 weeks later and offered the position. The benefits and salary were perfect and would have been silly to negotiate or change. For someone who just graduated from college a 60,000.00 dollar a year job sounded amazing. In hind sight I wish I wouldn't have been blinded by the dollar amount.

Technical Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Texas Instruments.

Interview Details – Talked the a recruiter at an on campus info session. Then had a video conference interview and for the final round of interviews I was brought to their campus in Dallas, TX. Everyone was super nice and made me feel extremely comfortable during this whole process. Amanda T is the best recruiter I have even worked with, so on top of everything and always willing to answer any questions I had.

Interview Question – During my on campus interview I had to teach the guy something I've learned in class. Op amps are always a good choice. They also asked about A/D converters. Other than that not too much technical stuff, mostly personality based questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation for the rotational program but their offer was great!

Technical Sales Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Santa Clara, CA

I applied online - interviewed at Texas Instruments in February 2014.

Interview Details – After applying online, I was asked for on-campus interview. Standard questions for technical sales took place such as " Why would you want to be a sales person?" or "Are you aware of the differences between Application Engineer and Tech. Sales" to confirm your attendance to the information session previous night.

During 30 min. webcam interview, you are asked some behavoural questions as well as " what are the qualities of a tech sales person", "do you love to win or hate to lose?".

During on site interview, you are asked to sell a vacation package. This is not very formal as they help you during the process and provide feedback. However, there is a 45 min behavioural interview with 2 regional sales/marketing managers. Try to be very communicative and talkative to demonstrate your sales side.

Interview Question – How to persuade someone to buy a product?   Answer Question
