Senior Software Engineer Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Texas Instruments.

Interview

Texas Instruments was honestly very rude and unwelcoming. Any question I asked was met with unenthusiastic responses. They seemed to not care about my personality at all and just saw me as a resume and applicant. I will never recommend this company to anyone, as I can easily rate my experience with them as my worst.

    I was contacted by Texas Instrumets via a Software outsourcing company in México. The outsourcing company reviewed my resume and tested my english skills. Then an engineer of the outsourcing company made some questions about my Linux and programming backgrounds. After that initial screening I was interviewed by the team in Dallas. The questions were regarding how would I start if no documentation was available and nobody knew how they would implement it. So I gave my answer and they were pleased with it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Texas Instruments (Bangalore (India)) in August 2010.

    Interview

    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!

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I got recruited through Campus placements, so there were absolutely no negotiations.
