    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Bangalore (India)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    First was the pre placement talk... they spoke about the company and what they look for in candidates. Then we had a written IQ/analytical thinking test, consisting of one general puzzle, and one data-structure related puzzle. Then we had a group problem solving exercise. The problem statement was: How are you going to increase India’s medal haul at the next Olympics to 20. We were supposed to think individually for five minutes, discuss for 8, and one of us would go and present for 2 minutes. Finally we had interviews with three panellists; mine lasted an hour.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Texas Instruments in December 2011.

    Interview

    Multiple phone interviews including a video conference call interview. The interviewers were from 3 different locations and none were employed at the location where I was interviewing for. The video conference was about 30 minutes long and began with a 10 minute resume presentation I had previously prepared. They seemed more concerned with previous job duties and experience and didn't quiz me on technical software topics.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Ra‘ananna (Israel)) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I had four technical reviews, two interviews by 2 different team leaders who asked about my technical experience and then asked general technical questions, technical "riddles". The third interview was conducted by the group manager who dived more deeply into my former employment background. The fourth interview was conducted by the division manager who again repeated many of the question that I were asked. I then was interviewed by someone from HR who tried to see what "kind" of person I was.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Texas Instruments in April 2010.

    Interview

    I had an approximately one hour phone interview with systems programming hiring manager. The hiring manager had a thorough knowledge of how systems applications were used in the organization and had a good grasp of the technical material. We had a pleasant conversation. He was sorting through the resumes he had received, picking through the candidates that had only listed buzz words. His choice was based on selecting candidates who had more systems programming experience vs applications programming experience. There was mutual agreement that I was not an exact fit for the job and there were probably other candidates better suited for the position.
