    Interview Details

    Very weird, they spent more time asking question about if I can say no to an engineer than my experience. the technical was more about them telling me about what they do every day.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at TriQuint.

    Interview Details

    The board interview consisted of mostly area leads. They made sure to make the interviewees as comfortable as possible. They fully explained the job and what was expected of the operators. All questions from the interviewee was generally answered happily.

    Interview Questions
    • It was an entry level position so none were extremely difficult. With my experience "How do we know you will be worth the time investment in training?" is usually the hardest.   Answer Question

    Acoustic Design Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Apopka, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Apopka, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at TriQuint in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted to set up a phone interview with an engineer. The interviewer was very nice to talk to. He explained in detail the position I had applied for. The interview was for 30 minutes which included some HR questions followed by technical questions related to the position.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were difficult. Some HR questions included tell me 3 words that your co-workers will use to describe yourself, have you ever worked with a co-worker on a project where he was in another state, why did you apply for this particular position.

      Unexpected question- It was my first interview so I was panicking as to what they will ask. So the unexpected question for me was when he asked about thermal noise from a resistor and if it depends on the resistance value.

      Other questions included how to make the the characteristic impedance of a micro-strip line lower, design a circuit using R,L and C such that it has 0dB S11 at low frequency, 0dB S11 at high frequency and matched somewhere in between.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at TriQuint in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    First got a call from HR and set up one phone call with hiring manager. One week after that did an interview with another manager. Then one week later went for the onsite interview. Talked with 10 current employees. They were nice and the questions are not too hard if you prepare well. Some of the questions were about different aspects of filters. Others were about fundamental knowledge of microwave engineering.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Apopka, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at TriQuint.

    Interview Details

    Three stage interview process.

    1. Phone interview with HR representative. Questions include tell me about yourself, your management and leadership style. Casual interview for the most part.

    2. Phone interview with the Hiring Manager. Rapid fire questions including tell me about yourself, familiarity with manufacturing equations/processes, why do you want to be in this position, etc.

    3. In person interview with 7 different managers. "Speed interviewing" basically - 15 minutes with each group or person. Start from the top down. Tell me about yourself, typical questions like that. Why do you want this position, know your background, etc. Some more in depth questions from one of the managers about how to find and stop bottlenecks from happening; in addition, knowing how to properly document and discipline employees.

    Interview Questions
    • Though there were tough questions, the most important one I answered 5 times was tell me about yourself. Make sure you have a good 1-2 minute explanation of yourself and how you want to be seen as the right candidate for the position.   Answer Question

    Industrial Statistician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hillsboro, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hillsboro, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at TriQuint in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a 30-minute phone interview with HR and then a 15-minute phone interview with the hiring manager. I traveled to a full-day site interview. After meeting with the HR person, I had multiple 1:1 and 2:1 interviews each at 30 minutes each. I probably met with 10 people (only one woman -- how behind the times is that?). I was also asked to make a 30-minute presentation on my background and some past projects. The interview seemed to go well.

    That was now 6 weeks ago and I have not heard back. I e-mailed the HR guy after two weeks to find out there expected schedule and never heard back. I think I dodged a bullet: if HR is not willing to give an on-site candidate the simple courtesy of a response to an interview and a follow-up email, I wonder how well the employees are treated after they are hired.
