Initially met with TI Analog team lead at career fair. Had an interview with him and he told me they would fly me down to Texas for an on site interview.
Got a call the next day saying that I interviewed with the wrong guy and needed to interview again at the career center.

Interview Details –
Recruiters came to our campus and seemed really desperate and pushy for the technical sales position. They interviewed about 8 of us in San Diego and we all thought they were going to accept 4-5 of us. (this is after passing the video interview). The questions in general were all behavioral and easy.
At the end of the interview you go through a mock sales pitch. For us we had to sell a vacation package to the hiring managers.
After being pushy to get people to like the position at the career fair they only accepted 1 person from the whole group.
