    Cannot Divulge Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Richardson, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richardson, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Texas Instruments in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Excellent interview although interviewed by three people simultaneously each with very different backgrounds which made answering questions cumbersome at times in order to relate to each of them individually at the same time. Each asked me about my background and how I might handle specific situations. This position was new ground for them so their questions were rather vauge. Once I understood what they were looking for I was better able to interject information that perhaps they had not considered. This gave them the realization I had the necessary experience and knowledge and how it would apply to their requirements. They were obviously impressed and approved me the following day.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Texas Instruments in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    After applying, received a call asking for an on campus interview the following day. Three workers of texas instruments were the interviewers. Questions varied from personal traits (leadership, good/bad things about myself) to technical (draw transistor level gates, etc). Questions were not too difficult, but it'd be good to review the theory on whatever position you're applying for. Overall a nice experience.

    Program Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted by the Manager I'd be working for and interviewed over the phone. I had another phone interview by another person in the department. I then was called in for on-site interviews with the Manager and three other members of the team. The on-site interviews were very thorough and took nearly 6 hours (they did take me out for an hour long lunch). A few days later I received a call from a TI recruiter from their corporate HR department indicating that the manager wanted to extend an offer. I went through a negotiation period with the HR person where we reached agreement, he extended an offer verbally and overnighted a written offer to me.
