    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Texas Instruments in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter contacted me via email to send her my resume. Then she scheduled an interview on campus. It was not the technical interview. Then after almost two weeks I received an email for a virtual interview. The virtual interview was a 30min interview which I had to record myself by answering some question which was not technical either. It was about how well I do in group projects and define what is creativity and how well I can lead a group and give them an example. Then after a few days I received a call regarding another interview over webcam. I had to make a presentation about a project I did for one of my classes and present them in 15minutes. Then they asked some question about my presentations and some other technical questions. And now I am waiting to heard back from them.

    Interview Questions
    • Q1. One of the questions were if you know your device will stop working at some temperature (i.e 25 degree below zero) how can you prove it to your costumer in a room where you are presenting your product? You can not make the temperature of the room to get to that temperature when you are meeting with the costumer?   Answer Question

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at Texas Instruments in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview was straight forward. Phone and then 1:1 interview. After which there was a decision making time of 2 weeks. They made me an offer, I accepted it. I had to go through Drug test. The background check took about a week. They needed few documents, which I provided. The interview process as such was like any other product engineering interview. Lot of basics. And some HR kinda questions. Just know your basics about semiconductors and electrical engineering as such.
