Product Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Anonymous Employee
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Texas Instruments.

Interview Details

Apply thru college career fair.
- Got campus interview the day after the career fair. Almost all behavioral questions. Talk a little bit about my project on resume.
- 3 weeks later got a virtual interview thru internet. Again, almost all basic behavioral questions. Only 2 "technical questions" asking about voltage divider and basic RC circuit. Also, they required me to prepare a 10 min presentation for whatever topic I like. I talked about my senior design project. The manager asked a lot of questions regarding to it.
- One month After the virtual interview I received an email indicating that my interview went well and next step will be onsite interview. It took about 2 month to schedule and reschedule for it. During onsite interview there are also a lot of behavioral questions. I think this is because this role is not so "technical" so that they rather like to see how could you deal with problems.

Interview Questions
  • What is the most difficult course you have taken? How did you deal with it?
    Provide an example on a certain course or project that you didn't do as well, explain why.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Texas Instruments in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through a career fair hosted by my University. They matched me up with this position based on my previous experiences and gave me an on-site interview the next day on the spot. The interview was almost entirely behavioral. My interviewer only gave me a very basic digital logic and RC circuit question. Afterwards, he asked me to explain about my experiences on my resume and multiple behavioral questions. The interviewer and recruiters were very friendly; probably the most friendly recruiters I have talked to the whole career fair. The process is a two step process where I was interviewed on-site and then I would be given a phone call to set up a virtual interview if they liked me as a candidate.

    After around 2 months, I was called to proceed on to the final round. I am supposed to be interviewed by 2 product engineers over a virtual interview. I am expected to also prepare a 10-15 minute long presentation of an engineering topic/experience that I was apart of and describe my role and outcome of this project.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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
