    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 2 days - interviewed at Texas Instruments in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I got recruited through Campus placements. Therefore the interviews weren't very tough. I had 1 written round + 2 technical + 1 HR interview.
    The written round had MCQs on common coding errors and practices.
    The coding questions concentrated on very basic algorithms, bit manipulation exercises, and questions involving concepts of pointers and memory.
    The interviewers checked my knowledge in concepts of Data structures, OS, memory and cache. And i was questioned a lot on my past projects.
    The HR interview was as expected, nothing out of the box. Prepare for questions like why do you want to work in TI and where do you expect yourself to see in 5 years!
