Applications Engineer Interview

Applications Engineer
Dallas, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Texas Instruments in December 2010.

Interview Details – I interviewed for the rotational program a while back. I hear its now 50-50 technical vs behavioral questions vs all behavioral when I interviewed a few years ago. You are graded more on your ability to communicate (for rotation program only) and how well you handle extreme situations

Interview Question – Tell us a time when you have lead a team of collegues/engineers on a project or had significant input on a project and it failed. Why did it fail and how did you go about it?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Negotiated 2x AFTER my offers had expired. If they want you as an employee, they will let you negotiate a bit.

Failure Analysis Engineer Interview

Failure Analysis Engineer
Dallas, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Texas Instruments in May 2010.

Interview Details – Employer reached out to me directly before graduation from college. Initial phone interview was followed by an in-person full-day interview, including some technical questions on circuit analysis and on comfort with chemical processing. I interacted with many of the employees in the department, more than my eventual supervisor, to make sure I was a fit for the culture and that all were on agreement on my competence.

Interview Question – Some questions regarding abstract spacial reasoning, essentially brain-teasers. Alternately, I was asked to individually pick alternating bond wires from a packaged device with a needle; the department has discontinued this screen.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate (this being my first job out of college) but they were flexible on my start date. You should try to negotiate more than I should, ie. at all.
