    It is on a job fair. I am looking for the job of test engineer. They first asked me some questions about the basic ideas of test engineer. They are not very interested in it I found. Therefore, I talked some about the test experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    It was a six person, panel interview with basic questions about your resume. They basically wanted to see what kind of a person you were. Then, they ended with a three question, 10 minute session where you had to answer these questions from a small board on your own sheet of paper, while they all stared at you. At the end of this process, you explained your work and answers with the panel. The questions asked were: 1) Find the equivalent resistance of a circuit. 2) Solve a simple op amp circuit to give the output, relative to the resistors. 3) Show what a transistor circuit example did. After this interview, free lunch was provided, a cheesy video was watched, and a brief description of the job/jobs were given to everyone interviewing, while the chance was had to meet a few people and ask about the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain what a basic transistor circuit did that was shown on a board.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) in April 2012.

    Interview

    It took about about 1 hour. There are two engineers. One of them is quiet but the other asks just puzzle questions. However, interview is not very friendly because he is not happy if you don't know the answer. The good thing is that it offers a nice trip to Dallas, and the hotel is very good.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Phone interview with hiring manager to determine interest in position. Tough technical interview over the phone after that. Flew to Dallas for on-site interview which lasted all day. Not enough time to explore the town or not be rushed, but fun process overall. HR needs to do a better job with maps/instructions/directions.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Tucson, AZ) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Had a 1:1 interview with 6 different poeple from various departments. The recruiters were friendly, and made me comfortable during the interview. This was my first interview and I did not perform as well, blanking out occasionally. The questions were asked using a basic circuit (mostly opamps )and making modifications to it.

    Interview

    I was offered an interview last week while at a job fair. The recruiter asked me to write a program to find the average of 10 numbers using arrays (the language didnt matter). Next he drew an AC signal and asked me to draw that circuit after it went through an ADC converter. Next, he asked me about the Fourier Series equations. He asked me about some of the projects I'm working on and that was about it.
